I picked one up the other day but it didn't make it. I think it was sick with something when I got it because 1/2 the body turned brown like it was burnt. A bout a week before that I picked up a TINY CT female. She is a little bigger then the babies and was not labled as a baby but she obviouly isn't an adult yet.
I have BBS eggs and was preparing some but the poor thing didnt last that long.
I think it is to get people to by them because it says BABY. I am going to ask them to stop or ask that they at least give them heavier care if they are going to sell the babies. I will also mention that even very experienced betta owners have trouble keeping them alive. Just a stupid thing to do overall though why sell babies?
Their plan seems to be to sell these baby bettas along with a TINY and I do mean tiny tank, smaller then their cups, along with a bottle of betta water for $10, claiming its a great christmas present for any beginner.
I can't find a pic of this tank online but it's about 1/4th the size of this half gallon one. This guy can at least move about some but with the triangle ones petco is pushing for the babies, an adult would barely be able to move, especially if its a VT or HM. A giant wouldnt even fit in them.
