Yay! My niece and nephews were there when I rescued she/him so they are now attached, so if anything happened, oh gosh. I don't want to know their reactions.

I found this site after we got home with the baby betta my daughter picked. I am determined to keep this little whippersnapper alive. Here's a pic; can anyone tell if it's a male or female? I'm not sure how old it is; it's a little under an inch.

It has the shape of a male from my stand point. Longer ventrals, anal fin seems to be pointed and a longer dorsal rather than short and fat. I don't see any ovaries but in that picture it's rather hard to tell. So I'm going with male :)

Looks more like a female to me. The ventral fins are the same size as the anal fins. However, if it's really under an inch long, it's probably only a few weeks old. Maybe 6 weeks. Still kind of early for sexing.

Fry can keep their "baby belly" up to 6 months of age. It's normal. Only if it seems to be causing the betta discomfort or swimming problems should you worry. And judging by the picture, they look to be about 7 or 8 weeks old. Can you measure it?

S/he doesn't stop moving if I'm near. But I haut snuck up on him. He is exactly 1". So that's aprox. 7 weeks.

Ah when measuring Betta's you measure from nose to peduncle or the beginning of the tail at the body so you just measure the body length.

i'm thinking of grabbing a baby next week when i go hit up petco and petsmart for some community fish for Cap's tank.

I have a spare 5g tank that would be nice for a baby. Plus, I like the mystery of baby bettas. They're like grab bag bettas. You don't know what you're getting, but you're getting something. lol
