  1. Baby betta questions!

    Betta Fish Care
    First time poster and betta owner here. Besides owning a very misunderstood and frankly unfortunate betta when I was 7, I haven't considered getting into the fish hobby until now.

The white spot on his tail was there when I bought him. Is his color still developing? I think I see a dark color coming in under the body next to the...

I wanted to start this thread for all discussion about PetCo selling Baby Betta, pictures of your new fish or what you've seen at your local stores, and stories of our success and failures. I am really not sure how I feel about...
