Baby betta sucker as well

Hi everyone, I've been snooping around here on my phone.
My son's blue crown tail made it just shy of his 1 year birthday with us. My almost three year old was devastated.
We also went to the store to buy a "new Graham" and saw the babies.

So, from seeing all of your posts, I'm thinking Baby Graham is a girl.
It hasn't changed at all from the day we got it, but is a tad longer.

What concerns me is the striping. Is this normal? Sometimes they are vertical instead.

striping is normal in young bettas, but when they're older it means they're stressed, it's fine.

While I have been super busy and away, I haven't been able to keep up here. But i noticed this thread the other night and just wanted to show everyone how big my Blue baby has grown she is as big as my male Vt Cheeto, if not fatter.
I almost wonder if it is possible she is part "giant".
I had got her the last week in September, I guess she must be around 5-6 months.

Blue when she was brought home


And Blue Now

I have been reading that betta fry let off stunting hormones? I researched it, and found some people say its a myth and others think its true. Does this happen to all betta fry, even if one is being raised alone? Any thoughts?

I have my little one in a 5 gal tank and I most certainly want him to grow to his full potential, so how often should I be doing water changes for him now? It will be a week tomorrow that I have had him, and I changed a little less than half his tank wednesday (I tried to only do 25% but I wasn't paying attention :P) Just checked his water tonight too and everything is normal.

I'm not sure if it's true but I change my water a lot more frequently for the baby. I do 3 50% water changes per week for her in a 5.5 gallon tank.

@atwnkltoes
My baby started with dark horizontal stripes, as all babies have, and now you will almost never see them, just 2 weeks later. I'm not sure what causes it but she will develop vertical stripes one minute and next minute they're gone.

I got a fluorescent light the other day, and got some pictures of Prize under it. All previous pictures of her were taken under an incandescent, and under the fluorescent she looks a lot more purple. Under incandescent she looks more blue.

I picked up a new one the other day. She was labled as a female betta and not a baby but obviously she is NOT an adult. Maybe not even a female? although I am hoping so.

Hard to get a good pic through a breeder net

I have it in the tank the store told us was perfect for Bettas. It is called a MiniBow and it is 1 gallon.
It came with a filter system but we took it out because the current seemed way too strong for such a small tank.
We have been doing partial water changes weekly and a full water change monthly. We also add the conditioner and salt rocks.
The picture does look pretty bad, but it's not that bad to the naked eye.

I picked up a baby at my Petco the other day, named it Pontus (under the assumption that the baby was a male) - being new to bettas I have no clue how to sex or classify it. Any ideas on the gender and possibly type? C: His very front fins are a bit longer, but my camera didn't feel like focusing on him when they were unfurled since he's smaller...
