Pill splitters are such a great idea!

Phoenix seems to be fine with the 'small fish' formula from NLS, and absolutely LOVES the frozen bbs I've been feeding her.

I'm pretty sure she's a girl. Ever since someone pointed out the possible outline of ovaries I've been watching more carefully, and I'm pretty sure they're actually there. Yay!

I've had her for just 8 days. Her tail is looking really funky because of the way it's growing out, and the red and black coloration is coming in slowly on her fins.

What a doll :) She looks so healthy!

There was a white baby betta at PetCo (I made the mistake of going back haha) and it's not just colorless, it's white... and if it's still there tomorrow I'm going to have to bring it home. His/her little face was just saying "Take me home!" and I can't fight it anymore!

I caved and got a baby today. I picked up its cup and it spread out its tail and swam around all happy. I put it down and looked around the store then came back and (s)he was all clamped up. But as soon as I picked up its cup again (s)he unclamped and started swimming around again. How could I just leave it there after that? lol

I went to petco today to get some neon tetras to add to my tank and I took a look at the bettas and saw that they were selling baby ones. I was wondering why they would do that, their so little!

I think some others have mentioned in the past that the babies they sell may have been culls that the breeders decided to attempt to cash in on by selling as babies instead, and I think that may be true for many of them. If that is the case then at least they get a second chance, even if the chances are slim that they'll go to a good home

If they would have been culls the breeders are messing up because most of the babies I've seen on here are stunning when they grow into adults!

Rosencratz your baby is so cute!

I went back today to get my lil fishy friend, but he/she died :( I knew I should have gotten it yesterday! Oh well though - I'll just keep my eyes out until I find another one that catches my eye :)

And 5 of them? You're gonna have your hands full haha Post pictures if you can :)
