What a change! Do you have any idea how old it was when you got it? Looks even younger than mine, and I think they were both 4 weeks when I got them!

i honestly want a baby betta. :I not to 'save' it, because PetCo takes pretty good care of their bettas, but for the fun in raising a baby again.

baby bettas are around 8 weeks old... maybe even older. I believe the are sold because they are the runts of the spawn, ie, the ones that are smaller than the regular frys of their age. Thats why they color up so rapidly once you take them home and put them in a proper environment. They are stunted during shipping and stuff due to cold water, no food, stress etc

@ lumieril- u sure its a marble? it would be great if it is!

I got one last night and did a simple NPT with a Critter box. 1 hair grass, 1 italian visalia, and 3 stones. Betta is called Wee, since he/she is tiny. Wee was pretty colorless and is picking up some red and blue overnight.

Wee may be going to work with me =D.

Oh after taking the pictures, I decided to throw in an anacharis since Wee likes sleeping on it.

Well, my babies doing really well in the week I've had him/her! Survived in the sorority tank for a few days even! Long story, but she jumped in during a w/c and it happened to be the day I couldn't find my net! Anyways, back to solitary for now! I'm leaving towards female, regaurdless of what the ventrals say because she got breeding stripes the other day when I had a couple new boys next to her bowl.
