Alfie

This is Alfira. I bought her back on November the 12th. Can anyone predict what color my girl is turning? She looks yellow to me but she has the little black flecks too. She did have some iridescent on her caudal, anal and dorsal but only a little and its faded since.

@Heifzilla It's kind of hard to tell. I'd say male for the time being, but my girl developed enormous ovaries over night. (heres a link to a crappy quality photo of her http://www.bettafish.com/showthread....01#post3415401) and here she is now (http://www.bettafish.com/showthread....87438&page=204).

Can someone more knowledgeable than I take a look and let me know if this is a male or female? And then explain how you know? :)

S/he is about 1 inch long right now.

Thanks :)

Looks to me like he'll be a boy. Mostly right now I'm looking at fin lengths, females would have a shorter, more rounded anal while he has a longer, morepointed one. But yes, they can fool us well sometimes so you'llhave to wait and see!

Thanks :)

I do have another question, too.

I have my baby in a cycled, well decorated 3 gallon tank. S/he likes to spend the majority of time at the bottom, picking through the gravel. I am assuming s/he is looking for food. I did crush up some betta pellets and a bottom feeder pellet and have been sprinkling that into the tank but s/he never comes up to eat at the top like my adult betta (in another tank!) does. I am currently waiting for some brine shrimp eggs to hatch and I am curious how to feed the hatched brineys to my baby. Do I just squirt them near the baby with a dropper? The tank is so big I am worried the baby betta won't find them on its own. I'd like it to have some good live food. Thanks :)

Here's an updated picture of the double tail baby I bought back in May (see page 99 for pics). Thought it might be a male at first but now I'm pretty sure it's a female...she's still pretty small, probably stunted. Unfortunately the other baby I bought at the same time passed away about a month ago. She had a big tumor on her gill...but I found another DT baby that looked almost just like her! Haven't taken any pictures of that one yet, she's growing out nicely in my sorority tank though!

Cutest thing ever was watching my little baby chase down baby brineys today. Adorable!

That's one thing I haven't fed...but I bet it's equally as fun as live daphnia! Little predators :)

Looks like a little male VT, most likely will be blue-ish purple when he grows up
