Arrow Betta getting larger

I realized something when i woke up today. Lucky isn't as small as he was at PSP. He's definantly getting larger. Has this ever happened to you?(if you havn't bred bettas) Is there anything "special" i need to do to him/tank while he's growing to make him more comertable?(Like a baby needs something to chew on while he/she are teething.) Or do I just let it be? Thnks!

How long ago did you get him? When they get older like anything, they grow. Bettas can get up to a couple inches long not including the fins. What size tank is he in now?

Ok well he'll be fine in that size of a tank. Some bettas get a little bigger than others, but it's nothing to worry about.

When i first got Bambi, she was so tiny! Maybe this big: __________

But now she's grown a bit! She's getting older.
