The healthier your fish, the larger he will grow. Before purchasing a Beta, there are some things you should know. Popular Beta misconceptions may start you off on the wrong path. Here are 5 things you can do to make sure your Beta fish grows as large and healthy as she can be.

Things You'll Need

  • bloodworms
  • fish tank

Keep your Beta fish in a tank of at least 3 gallons. Pet stores recommend tanks of 1 1/2 gallons, but Betas are more content in 3.

Feed your fish frozen bloodworms. Betas are carnivores and particularly like bloodworms.
