Betta fish have become some of the most popular domestic fish in the world. Their long, flowing fins and beautiful color make them a lovely addition to any home or office. Unlike some other fish, the size of the tank does not directly coincide with a betta's size. The more important element of betta size is overall health and well-being. The healthier your fish, the larger he will grow. Before purchasing a betta, there are some things you should know. Popular betta misconceptions may start you off on the wrong path. Here are five things you can do to make sure your betta fish grows as large and healthy as he can be.

  • Keep a betta fish in a tank of at least three gallons. Pet stores recommend tanks of 1 1/2 gallons, but bettas are more content in 3.

  • Feed your fish frozen bloodworms. Bettas are carnivores and particularly like bloodworms.

  • Maintain your tank's water temperature at about 80 degrees. betta fish are tropical fish and cool water lowers their immune system.

  • Keep the tank clean. Each week, replace the water to keep it healthy, clear, and fresh.

  • Care for only one betta fish in the tank. Betta are territorial and often kill each other if they are in close proximity.
