I personally would be concerned about putting an ADF in with a baby Betta. One of the pair of ADFs I briefly had (I had to rehome them) in a 5 gallon with my adult male veiltail grabbed his tail at one point and he had to really struggle to get away. My Betta was fine but I hate to think how it could have turned out if he had been a fragile baby.

A 5 gallon is perfect size for a baby betta and adult bettas so it can be his/her permanent home. I raised Prize in a 5.5 gallon then split it into two and raised another baby named Spark. Spark stayed very small though, she is about half the size of Prize and I think she's done growing.

I went to PetCo about a week ago and I bought a baby Betta fish. Now I've had Bettas before, females to be exact but never a baby. Is there any way of telling if it's a male or a female yet?
Here's a picture of it:

I took that picture a week ago, here's an update:
Does anyone know what kind of Betta it could be?

KariHuizar, it looks like a VT to me. A very cute one. Also, maybe female? It's hard to tell but you can try letting her see another betta to see if her reaction gives you any clues.

Thank you! I put a mirror next to her and she was flaring at it. Still not quite sure if it could be a male but yeah it does look like it could be a female! Thank you!
