New here - my 2 bettas!

As Im new I thought I'd post pics of my 2 bettas =)

My handsome old man, Carlton:





Had him for about a year and a half now. He's the king of the castle :P

As for my newest betta, I caved and bought a baby from Petco I have had bettas for a while, so I know that he/she requires special care. That's actually how I ended up here anyway; I was seeing if baby bettas were a new fad at Petco, as I hadn't seen them there before. Here are a few (blurry) pics:






This one shows their color a little better. When he/she is relaxed they have a lovely dark red color, but they still have baby/stress stripes.
I just got him/her so they are still a little camera shy. I've got them in a heated 1 gallon and made sure to get food for their tiny size. No idea on gender, but with optimal care I know they'll grow up to be a looker ^^ They eat up the crushed pellets like a pig. He/she is maybe the size of a quarter at the moment. I'm excited to chronicle their growth

I've had the baby for about 3 days now ^^ I'm thinking it may be a male, I don't see an egg spot and his fins look slightly elongated now that he's calmed down and zipping around the tank, and I believe I can see a baby beard sprouting out. Then again, I'm an amateur at this :P

I nabbed a shot of my kitten Alister watching his favorite 'cat toy'. Alister will watch him for hours, and Carlton completely ignores him.

Carlton is a very pretty boy! The baby is too. Do you have a name for it?

Thank you

I finally got a good picture of the baby:





Still no name My mother actually named Carlton (when you can't come up with a name yourself, other names tend to stick =\), so I'm looking forward to naming this one
