Newest update...lil baby squirt's colors are starting to develop!! He is a hungry lil sucker and his diet includes: Crushed baby shrimp, micro-pellets and crushed bloodworms!! I changed his water yesterday and later in the evening he started becoming darker/bluer. Over the weekend I will be updating all of my tanks with some new silk plants I bought yesterday...all 8 of my fish will have an update over the weekend!! :)

Oh, that's so cool to watch a baby betta's color come through!

To you, they're just fish. To me, they're just my greatest friends

He had a green sheen to him when the light hit him when I first saw him at the store...then he was kinda blah in color for a few weeks then BAM!! Dark Royal blue...even though I really wanted a green boy, he's too cute...I will take blue ;)

Sad to say this is the end of this post. Squirt was getting bigger, very active and a very healthy... but he managed to leap out of the opening of his tank and died on the carpet. Needless to say, this makes me very sad. RIP Squirt.

Stumbled across this thread and just wan to let you know there is no way you got him 2-3 weeks old. More like 2-3 months old.

Umm thanks? He was 3/4 inch and I thought he was younger then 2-3 months. Thanks for the "constructive critism"...that's going to do me a lot of good.

Really cute! Only thing is that you shouldn't be giving him bloodworms often as it should only be used as a occasional treat
