Betta Splendens – Siamese Fighting Fish

Crown Tail
Bettas are an excellent beginner fish that everyone can enjoy.  They typically require no more than a few gallons of water and almost no equipment at all making them a very inexpensive way to get involved in aquarium husbandry.

 

Halfmoon

Bettas come in a wide variety of colors and have been bread in captivity to show off their desirable traits, including their beautiful flowing tails. Most hobbyists will be after a male because they display the best colors and fins.  Two males should not be kept together in the same aquarium because they are highly territorial.

 

It is a misconception that they must be kept in solitary confinement as they do well with many other species of docile fish.
