i bought 2 bettas from Petco over the weekend. i've never had bettas before .These guys aren't big, though 1 is bigger than the other( i think possibly 1 male /1 female ) the smaller one is maybe an inch,the other 1 1/2 inch.
i've been searching all over the net for info so i 'll take care of them right...nothing like putting the cart before the horse so to speak. don't know why i bought them w/o being prepared. i never do that.
they are each in their own "tank". Their water is 73 degrees. i'm feeding them betta pelleted food but have to break it some so they don't struggle to eat it.
How old do you think they are at that size? What rules should i follow to keep such tiny critters healthy?

mhwc56- I think you should start a thread over in the betta care section. There you can decribe what size tank you have and everything else. 73F is a little low for small fish. Betta's typically do the best in 77-78F.. However, my tank falls to 72 at night (with a low wattage heater) and rises to 75 in the day and Lakitu is fine. I think your fish are younger than Laki is so I would make efforts to get a heater..
