My Petco seems to have stopped selling them. With the 30 day refund thing they have, I bet they were sick of refunding money all the time for all the babies that die.

Hopefully it will stop soon due to that. It's ridiculous that any supplier would sell fish that young. It's ridiculous that the store would buy them. Betta that small still need a live food diet, they just stand no chance. :/

actually, the one I bought loved the sinking catfish pellets. I'm pretty sure she died due to my ignorance about uncycled tanks and the ammonia levels killed her

I saw some tonight. They were very cute, and one was quite interested in me. They also had a beautiful light blue and yellow HM. I felt so bad for them. I hope they are bought by Betta lovers. My husband was like, no no no.
At least their cups were clean and filled up.

My word and I though seeing girls that were less than an inch was bad. The fact they have to gaul to sell true fry at the store, this just sickens me.
Part of me is tempted to go see if mine has them so that I can complain in person.
Another part is tempted to buy them out to set up a 30 gallon and see if I can raise them right, of course I won't because that will just encourage them to sell more....

I don't know why they would sell them; they don't have nice fins yet, and they can't be making much profit. They were like $1.99. I'm betting it's a trend that will pass. No one seemed to be buying them.
