    Depends, you'd have to ask the store (every one is different)..most won't take them until their almost adult size and won't give you squat for them. If you do end up with unknown sexes and a breeding pair you could always offer them on Craigslist and to avoid shipping state pick up only.

    I didn't really read the posts so far (sorry for that) but in case you're worrying about the fish breeding, I can comfort you with the fact that most fish simply eat their children. It's only a few species that actually have any kind of parental instincts towards their young.

    yep, nossies right...but if the tanks really really planted or has lots of hiding places some will find a way to survive on a more cheery note :) haha!

    cycling is easy,basically you are creating an environment when you cycle.

    If you can get a bigger tank go for it. with a 3g tank you have to do water changes daily, usually 55g+ you can get away with weekly and biweekly water changes, they stay healthier and more "in check" then smaller tanks do.


    King bettas are good for around 4-5" max.
