Betta fish much smaller than others

keeping baby bettas means Water changes water changes and more water changes. if you dont change the water everyday in a small tank, they are going to grow slow.

Each fry releases growth stunting hormones into the water to try and limit it's competition in growing up. this can only be eliminated with water changes.

other than than, feed an adequate high proteins diet as there are carnivorous fish. live foods such as tubifex? blackworms and what not will be highly appreciated.
