My baby Spark looked similar to Elvis in body at first, but has almost the same coloring as Jagger. Spark is a lot smaller than my first baby Prize, who is blue and looks similar to your Floyd..so I think you're right that Floyd is female. I reallllly love Marley though, he/she looks marbled which is awesome! I've always wanted a marble. To me they all look female except for maybe Marley. Only time will tell though. I've had my babies since the end of December/Early January and still Spark is very small compared to Prize. I think sometimes they're the "runts" of the spawn and also their growth gets stunted from being in the cups for a long time.

@JBonez, all your babies are gorgeous! I can't imagine how much fun it is watching them grow and change. I can hardly believe the metamorphosis my little one has undergone these last three weeks.

Picked up this little baby today! He/She's in a dragon themed 2.5 gallon tank!

Can't wait to see her grow up!



Here's the link for my journal on this baby!

The next really good looking baby betta I see, I'm buying. I was going to buy one a few weeks ago and decided against it and I'm so sad! My first baby is as big as my other girls now. She's gorgeous and I want another! I just lost a couple of my other girls and my tank seems empty with only 8, lol!!!

Meet Chai Son!

So ... in the last couple of days, it has become obvious that while I'll need to wait awhile longer before tail type becomes clear, what is NOT in doubt any longer is my little "baby's" gender. I've clearly got a little boy on my hands, and as such, I have finally been able to give the little guy a name. His name is Chai Son ... Thai for mischievous boy, and I could not have picked a better name in terms of meaning. This guy is a character, and full of personality and fire. So entertaining and fun ... I just love him, and I can hardly believe that in three weeks he's gone from a little tadpoley thing to a gorgeous young fish.

Here are some recent shots taken over the weekend. I took them with my iPhone, not my Canon, the latter of which seems to pull more green out, but it also just depends on the time of day and the angle - his colors change that much, even just to the naked eye. In these he is more red/purple than green and blue, but hey - I'll take it. He's gorgeous either way.

It's been about 4 months since I got my first baby Mercedes. Well it looks like she hasn't grown in 2 months. She still looks like a baby. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong or maybe she is just a runt. What should I do?

Daily WC if she is in a small tank. How big is the tank?
Try using Amquel+ with the daily WC, it made a difference for my babies.
