So. I went into Petco fully planning on buying a young betta. What I didn't count on is that they didn't get a betta shipment in last week and all they had left from 2 weeks ago were babies and kings.
And...... now I have two baby bettas!
Can anyone guess the sex? And any tips on feeding/care would be appreciated. I have them in two kk's with heaters and a little java moss right now.
We named already named them.
Thing One:



Thing Two

I can't believe how small Thing Two is. So small. Definetly too early to determine gender. feed them 2-3 times a day. Clean, warm water daily, and plenty of places to hide and explore are a must.

Yeah- maybe a half inch long? I couldn't resist buying them- esp knowing they were in those petco cups for two weeks. It's no wonder they didn't get bought- they must have been specks. They are so cute!
What should I feed them? I'm googling right now. On hand, I have frozen bloodworms I can mash up, a shrimp garlic mash in I made the other fish a couple days ago, nls pellets I can mash up (are they too little for that??), and I read something about egg yolks somewhere? Also, I just bought frozen brine shrimp cubes today. I'm picking up extra shifts to pay for these guys fyi.

For Thing One, I would feed it pre-soaked NLS pellets. Thing Two: mashed bloodworms. I have never had a betta that small before. Give'm to me, hah lol.

Actually don't soak pellets, they lose all their nutrients if you do. You can instead grind it up until a power or you can use NLS/Omega Flakes as well. Both can eat crushed bloodworms for the extra protein. Frozen are always better than freeze-dried so I'm glad you have those ^_^

Also, both of them are males
