Aww!!!! So freaking cute! It looks like a male to me but hold me to that. I've had my baby for a month now and still can't tell if it a girl or boy.

I've had 3 babies so far and still have trouble picking out the right sex.
I also just bred an HMpK pair a month ago, without fin length to help me tell the difference between genders, it'll be interesting seeing how many I mix up

I'm gonna go with female VT. If it were male, at that size you would see more length to the fins

My store only orders a few at a time - though they're popular, the aquatics expert doesn't like selling them so young. They are cute little things though.

So my baby Mercedes is now out of the breeders box and swimming with the big girls and doing great. No one is chasing or nipping at each other.

PETCO doesn't train it's staff that well about the baby bettas because when I got mine today they said the normal betta food would be fine. They must have just gotten a shipment since there were a dozen or so good looking babies while most of the adults were stressed.





I choose this one thinking it would be a half moon male and I liked the colors, but they had 5 or so double tails.

A lot of babies are females and therefore don't show color til later and maybe won't be as vibrant as a male. They also are sometime the runts of the spawn so are stunted. Stress causes them to show almost no color. I got my second female when she was grey and she's now red with pretty mettalic blue. She's growing verrrrry slowly though compared to my first female baby.
