Hi Guys, I just seem to be faced with problem after problem.
I noticed this little spot on my baby Adonis and I want to know what I should think about it. Do you think it could be bad?

Looks like she might be a marble, so that spot might expand and her fins might be clear in the end and change again. It doesn't look like anything disease related though so you're fine.

Ok here are photos of my baby when i was changing his water. I have had it for a week. They're not the greatest pictures because I know nothing about cameras but it's the best I could get. Can anyone tell me if it looks like a boy or a girl?

I have no idea what everyone is talking about with this hormone thing. I have a male betta I got about a year and a half ago as a tiny, all black petco baby the length of my fingernail. He grew up in a 2 gallon, unfiltered, unheated critter keeper. I did a full change every other week when he was tiny. He is huge. The largest of my 5 bettas. I also have a female gotten as a baby who is huge also. She is in a 2 1/2 heated and filtered planted tank that I do a 25% change weekly. Total myth where my fish are concerned.

Oh lol nice hair!

Looks like a little baby boy to me ^_^

If you've got a digital, switch to the P setting (Program) and then on your camera somewhere in the buttons, there should be one with a little flower looking symbol, looks like a tulip. Click that and press to the left, that should say Macro under it. Macro setting will allow you to take really close pictures of anything and be in focus! You have to fiddle with it a little bit to get to know it, but you'll take great pics in no time! Also, get a flash light or something to give you nice bright lights and shine it on the fish and that will help your camera focus. Instead of just pressing the button, hold the button down halfway and it will focus your camera, once you see it's in focus then press the button fully down and it should snap a great picture that's in focus!

It usually takes a few tries to get one good, in focus picture but it's worth it to sit there and do a photo shoot ^_^

This is Nibbles, day 1:



Day 2:



Day 3:



He looked like that until about two weeks after I got him, when this happened:



Here he is today, in his big boy tank. I've had him for about a month. He's so dark now that he's hard to photograph. He spends his days hilariously wooing his neighbor, Princess Bubblegum, the lady in my avatar.
