Male Betta Halfmoon

Also known as Siamese Fighting Fish, Combattant (Canada), Trey kroem phloek (Cambodia), or Cá lia thia (Vietnam).

The Male Betta is well known for its jewel-bright colors and spectacular fins. Bettas are anabantids (Derived from the Greek Verb anabaino, meaning "to go up") which physiologically means they have two methods of breathing. Bettas breathe from their labyrinth organ which enables the fish to breathe from the surface. Bettas also breathe through their gills like other fish.

As the name suggests, the Male Halfmoon Betta has a large tail in the shape of a halfmoon. The angle is from 170° to a perfect 180° tail span. This tail variation is one of the most beautiful, yet fragile of the Bettas that has been bred within the past decade or so.

Bettas will "flare" their fins when disturbed or threatened. The male Betta will attack another Betta and have been known to attack similar-looking fish. It is recommended that only one male Betta is housed in an aquarium with plants and very little current.
