Is a 4 cm long betta a baby?


I got 2 new fishes. A boy and a girl. The girl is really tiny, about 4 cm long, nose to tail. Is she considered as a baby? SHould I give her different care?

She still has growing to do but I wouldn't call her a baby. She is probably around 3-4 months old if she grew normally. Her max should be 5 months old.

Congrats on your new pair.

As Indjo said..I would guess that she is about 3-5 months old and IMO 5 months might be a little up there for her. Though some fish are just stunted this way.

Just give her fatty food like worms and such. I'm sure she'll grow!

Also next time please post in the General Betta Fish Care Section or the Betta Chat section because it fits best there.
