Your live fish may not match the image shown due to natural variations in each species. Each companion animal is different in shape, color, and personality.
Bettas are one of the most popular aquarium pets because of their beauty and easy care requirements. If you are running low on time and space, a Female Halfmoon Betta could be the right pet for you. This live Betta fish makes a wonderful work companion or can easily fit into any home, including a small dorm room.
If you choose a Female Halfmoon Betta, you won’t have to worry about assembling a large and complicated aquarium or finding enough room to fit it. Unlike many other live fish for sale, these Bettas can live comfortably in just a liter of water. They don’t require a tank with a filter, though you will need to clean the tank and add fresh water when it gets dirty. A tank this small can easily fit on your desk at work. A live Betta fish is also a great choice for a busy college student or even a child ready for the responsibility of a first pet.
The female Betta’s fins are not quite as long and flowing as her male counterpart, but she has plenty of charm on her own. The Female Halfmoon Betta comes in a variety of colors. What makes this particular Betta stand out from other live fish for sale is her tail. As her name says, the Halfmoon Betta’s tail is shaped like a beautiful half moon.
While most other live fish for sale breathe underwater through a set of gills, the Betta fish has a set of gills as well as a special organ called the labyrinth organ. This organ allows them to breathe from the surface. You’ll notice that your live Betta fish regularly swims to the top of the aquarium and seems to kiss the surface. Your fish is actually breathing!
Female Bettas can feel stressed or threatened in the company of other fish and should be housed alone for their comfort and well-being. Please note that Betta supplies, like an aquarium, plants and Betta food are sold separately.
