Puddles

The guy at the petco here was "no" help and yes I agree so sad that so many people assume small tanks are wonderful to keep bettas in. I used to be one of those people :) Today my parents got me a 10 gallon tank from walmart with all the hookups for a late birthday present. I am obviously not using the filter and instead am changing the water once weekly like I do with my other bettas. I fell in love with a baby betta after losing my oldest fish to dropsy or some sort of horrible disease (after I nursed him back to health with aquarium salt and betafix) it was awful. I was in grieving and then went to the store with my husband who is also a sucker for cute bettas. When I went online to do research on my baby betta I learned about tanks and such. I felt so bad and somewhat responsible for my older bettas death but now have vowed to do as much as I can to help my betta family.

Today I was curious how my husband's betta would react to having the baby close by in another tank. To my suprise my "baby" flared and I saw his little beard come out. I know now that my betta is a boy so I named him Puddles :) My husband's betta Charlie is so silly for feeling threatened by such a small fish. Don't worry it was a split second and they were safe in 2 separate tanks.

I can't wait to get the divider for my 10 gallon but for now Charlie gets to enjoy it while Puddles enjoys his small tank with his heater. I am praying Puddles grows up healthy and nice :)

Figured I'd join the party and add my baby betta to the show!

Here's Small Fry! I've been told *she's* a female, but I don't know.

I'm also not sure of her tail type.

Actually, any info on what you can gather from these pics would be good. :)

Hmm i'd say a female becuase of the big belly and tail shapes. And is that top fin more rounded or pointed than itwould be easier to find tail type. Maybe a delta tail or plakat? But im not sure.

I'd guess that the dorsal fin is more round than pointy. Geez, I'm hoping for a delta tail, I've got a pretty male halfmoon that I want to start breeding.

When would she be old enough to breed?

I think it's still too soon to tell, but he/she sure looks like they're going to have some red.

Small tanks are very common with Bettas. Under 30 gallons is small.
