Hello! My baby looks a lot like Pikachu! Except Lily is pale blue (with stress stripes, sadly), is thinner, and I think she may even be smaller! Lily also has clamped fins and won't eat much. Looks like you got lucky with him (or her)! He/she looks very healthy! Good luck!

young bettas keep the stripe for a few months. it's not a stress stripe. :V Chappy had hers for almost two months before it went away, and she was perfectly happy.

he acts way healthy too! he is a very spunky little one. I could have purchased blue with stripes on it, but I really wanted Piko, we connected :)

Thanks Luimeril! That makes me feel a bit better. :) Carzz, how are you feeding Pikachu? Do you crush up blood-worms?

no problem! i really want one of these babies, but can't get to PetCo. :T maybe i can talk mom into going. she'll like their selection of fish, that's for sure!

also, i fed Chappy a mixture of live BBS and crushed New Life Spectrum Grow pellets. she LOVED it! i loved watching her chase the BBS around and eat them, and she looked so cute with her fat, orange belly!

The Babies sure are a hand-full! Lily's already given me quite a bit of grief in the past 48 hours! If you do end up getting one, make sure you get the healthiest fry possible.

i'm well prepared! still have my BBS eggs, but i'm not sure if they're still alive, and i have plenty of NLS. i raised Chappy from a month-old fry, so.... it'd be fun, raising another!

I fees Pikachu a mix of crushed bloodworms and crushed pellets. And I'm trying to hatch bbs, but it's been about 50 hours since I put them in the water and nada..... Anyone know the salt/water ratio?
