Nugget

Soo, I went into Petco for a bit of fish food, came out with a fish. Of course. It happens to everyone :P
Anyways, I've been hearing the rumors and stories of baby bettas and had to check them out.
And fall head over heels in love, dang it.

So, here is Nugget, my as-of-yet still unknown-gendered fishy. Not much color yet, just a couple of black scales. I don't know if that means they're cellophane, since many of the smaller bettas had a lot of color already, or if they're just a bit slow in that department. Either way, I don't care.
Without further ado, Nugget!








Sorry for the quality, used my phone for these! If Nugget starts to drastically change colors I'll update on them (:

He/she is adorable. I'm leaning towards a male since I don't see the yellow triangle that denotes ovaries, but it could be too soon to tell.

If I had to guess on age I'd say at the 5-6 week mark IF he's not stunted... I wouldn't be surprised if the sellers of these fish were purposely stunting them so they'll sell better.

It looks like a male to me but that can still change as he continues to develop.. some of my girls I couldn't see ovaries until 8 weeks or so.

I have a Virgin Mobile Optimus V! Really good camera on it!
And I kind of hope it's a male :3 Either way I really wouldn't mind though! A female would be great, too!

Edit: Some of the fish there were like.. less than a half an inch long. They were so itty bitty, I felt really bad for them :/ They were way too young to be sold, that's for sure.

Seeing these baby Bettas makes me want one. It also gives me good practice with learning how to identify genders. I want to breed SOMEDAY, so it's good to learn.
