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.
If you want a pretty but low-maintenance pet, consider starting with a Male Deltatail Betta. These beautiful live Betta fish have a distinctive tail that set them apart from other live fish for sale. They can thrive with basic care and lots of love. These attributes also make Bettas a great option for children who are ready for their first pet.
Live Betta fish come in a variety of bright and beautiful colors, from sapphire to emerald to ruby. They are also known for their long, flowing fins and tail. The Male Deltatail Betta has a distinctive triangular tail with crisp edges and sharp angles.
Of all the live fish for sale, Bettas are one of the most low-maintenance species available. They can live comfortably in just a liter of water. You can easily fit their small tank on a desk at work, in a crowded dorm room or even in a child’s room. Bettas live in fresh water and can thrive happily for several years. Children, especially, can learn a lot about the responsibilities of being a good pet parent by caring for a live Betta fish.
Bettas have one other feature that makes them unique from other live fish for sale. While they have a standard set of gills, Bettas also possess a labyrinth organ which allows them to breathe air from the surface. Watch as your Male Deltatail Betta swims to the surface of the tank to take a breath of oxygen. When water conditions are ideal, you may even notice that your male Betta makes a pretty bubble nest on the surface of the water.
Bettas can feel threatened in the presence of other fish, which is why they are best housed alone.
Please note that all Betta supplies, including an aquarium and food are sold separately.
