First few pics of my baby! I'm thinking of starting a journal to keep track of his/her growth. Gonna be super interesting to see what it grows up to be!

It is just the tiniest little fella, I really hope I can handle keeping it alive.

I know, I'm still shocked that I found them. After months of looking for a baby DT, I finally got lucky! I probably shouldn't have bought both though...and if one turns out to be a male I'll probably have to buy and set up a new 5g for him, haha. They are little piggies though, hopefully they grow fast!

Have you looked into making DIY dividers? They're basically plastic craft/needlepoint mesh with report binders along their edges for strength & stability. I made one for my 5g and it seems to work great, plus it was like $5 overall.

I used this tutorial to divide my 5g tank: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/d...ividers-21866/

The one in the picture with the babies is actually just a piece of extra craft mesh I had and cut out to use as a make shift divider (no report binder pieces) because I'm dividing a breeder box, not a full size tank. Too bad the plastic divider that came with the breeder box doesn't go all the way to the bottom, or I would have just used that. Lol. The breeder box is just temporary, though.

Hello all! I got a baby betta from Petco several days ago. I had never heard of baby bettas before - I was looking at the adults when a staff member excitedly told me that they just got a baby double tail in that day. I had never seen any betta besides a veil tail before. Anyways, I'm attaching a picture just because I think it's cute. My main question has to do with feeding. I have Hikari micro pellets, but he has been absolutely refusing to eat. All he will eat is freeze dried bloodworms even though I know that is not ideal. I would experiment with live/frozen foods, however I'm going out of town for a wedding for a whole week and my sister needs really easy instructions to follow for taking care of my fish.

The betta is in a 5 gallon dirt tank (no fertilizers, lights on 10 hours a day). This tank was home to my guppies before they massively over-populated it and had to be moved. I do 25-50% 1-2 times a week. The tank temperature is set at 80 degrees. The betta is currently in a floating breeder trap so I can monitor his food intake and because he's not quite strong enough to swim against the filter. Anyways, if anyone has food suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it! I was told that the Hikari micropellets are what he ate in the store. Also if anyone is able to tell me more specifically his tail type from the picture or whether he is a "she," I'd appreciate that as well. Thanks!
