Hail, I originally put my baby betta in a breeder box in my sorority tank too. She lived in there for a week or so and then escaped when I did a water change, and has had free reign of the tank ever since. She's doing great, and ended up being a female so it worked! :D

I put my baby in the breeder box 2 hours ago. All the girls surrounded the baby and were flaring now the only one watching baby is Briseis. Every once in awhile Jensen swims by and baby flares up. Magenta and Opal don't really care anymore. Lol. I have noticed the baby has a blue and red hue. I'm 99% sure its a Vailtail but I'm not sure of the gender.

Yep, that's pretty much exactly what my girls did. I will say though, maybe it's my imagination, but after she escaped into the main tank the other girls really ignored her, probably just because they were used to seeing her already!

Well my baby looks any where from 6-8 weeks old. So I don't want to release it until I know the gender is and when it gets a little bit bigger.

This is my baby girl all growed up
I did the same thing with the breeder box - but she jumped out of it so I just let her be

and the newest one - had her a few weeks already

I did that with a very young VT "female" and ended up with this:


I started to suspect something was amiss when his fins kept growing and growing. He never got more agressive as he aged though

Quick question::

what have all your babies grown up into? (Tail types)

My first was DbT, 2nd is still a mystery. Leaning toward VT because I'm not sure that they have anything other than CT, VT, and DbT

Hmmm... Mine's a veiltail... but not your conventional pointy tailed Vt. His tail is kinda rounded at the end ...he also has colored pectorals ^_^ which are my favorite fins one him.

I think mine are both female VT's or DeT's. I cannot really tell because I'm pretty bad at telling female tail types. Here is a good guide I used:

http://www.fishlore.com/fishforum/be...ale-betta.html

Since the edges of Spark's tail is straight and not curved like a VT's, I'm going to say she's a DeT but she's not done growing. She is still a lot smaller than Prize and she isn't growing as fast either.:


Prize looks more like a VT:
