I bought a baby from PetCo in November. I don't know how old he was, but he was even smaller than the pictures others are posting of when they first bought theirs. Unfortunately, I don't know exactly how much he's grown because I don't have a camera so I can't compare pictures. He doesn't have stripes anymore, though, and his tail and fins are definitely much fuller.

Update on my baby:


I've had him/her for 13 days, 7 of which s/he has had free reign of my 29g sorority tank because s/he escaped out of the breeder box I was keeping him/her in and I just let it be. It's really cute because despite the small size, s/he is FEISTY and steals food from my other girls who are 3x the size of the baby! I love watching them interact.

S/he has definitely grown significantly, but I still can't sex him/her...sometimes it looks like s/he's a boy and sometimes a girl...the egg spot still seems to be there, you can kind of see it in the photo. Can anyone confirm or is it too early yet?

I wish I would have seen some double tail babies when I got mine! I have yet to see one at the Petcos near me.

I managed to get a double tail for my first one.
At such a young age its hard to tell the difference between a lot of tail types, there are some you can tell are VT for sure, but then there are also ones that look iffy like they could be DeT or HM.

I dont have a petco in my area though, only get to visit once a month when I drive 2 hours away so I'm not sure if they have more variety than I know of

I just picked up a blue/green, black, and white marble CT (atleast I think CT, definitely not VT) today!

i got to my local petco every thursday when they get new fish in. Ive gotten baby a couple baby double tails, but mostly they turn out to be vt or ct. probably 80% of mine were female. Got a few nice marbles from babies as well.

I'm jealous!!
I wish I could go every time they get new fish in!
I do that at petsmart most weeks, but I have to drive 2 hours to petco!
