I have a baby too! My son received her as a thank you gift at a party. We have had her for 8 days. She is almost an inch and she has some pink/ purple color coming in. This board has given me a lot of good information on taking care of my little tot.

Good luck with yours!

Ok here's a picture of my little one. For someone who I'm sure was a cull it seems quite active and happy. I didn't have the heart to just leave the little guy there, I was sure no one would pick it because it's fin is messed up and its back is a little crooked. I have to admit I was kinda surprised this morning to see it swimming around, but I'm still trying to not get to attached. Oh and if anybody has any guesses on gender let me know, I'm leaning towards male but who knows.

Our little fishy is doing so well. He's really active, he's feisty and he attacks his food. And he seems to grow noticeably every day. Horizontal lines are almost gone, and his blue and red color is richer. What a difference a bigger tank and regular feedings makes. My daughter really wants her fishy to be a girl, but I'm leaning towards a boy now, because its still so little but the fins have gotten so long in just the last couple days. Im so impatient, i wanna know!! We'll see! I'll have to get a good picture later.

Aww he's cute. What have you been feeding him? Mine loves the frozen bloodworms but do I have to feed some pellets too?

Yes Frozen BW's are great! You can feed crush pellets as well though so the tank isn't as messy. I would alternate days with the BW's and the pellets. I use a mixture of ground up NLS flakes, pellets and Omega one Pellets and they love it!

It is! Even though my two little boys had stunted growth, they're growing up so well and gaining colors everyday! It's so beautiful and exciting

I've been feeding mine frozen brine shrimp and crushed flakes. He won't seem to eat any pellets I've tried. My petsmart didn't have frozen bloodworms, unless they had another name and i didn't see them, but I want to get those too.

I have the hikari first bites, but they're so small, is it kind of pointless to feed him those at this point? And how many times a day is everyone feeding their babies? I've been feeding 3x/day, is that good?


It is fun to see them grow, just in a week i see such a difference. I can't wait to see if hes a male or female and what kind of betta. When we transferred him to the 5.5 gallon my almost 3 year old said "he's gonna grow up in there!" She loves him, she kisses the tank and talks to him. :)
