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.
Also known as Double Tail Betta, 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 finnage. 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.
Male Doubletail Bettas have their tail fin divided into two. Another characteristic for some Doubletail Bettas is that their dorsal fins are wider than Veil Tail Bettas. Genetically speaking, these traits are recessive genes. 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.
