Male Cambodian Veiltail Betta

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

The Male Veiltail Betta is well known for its jewel-bright colors and spectacular fins. A Male Cambodian Veiltail Betta is a cream or white color bodied fish. Fins are unaffected, and the body is lacking any black pigmentation but may have some green, red, blue, or yellow coloration. Genetically speaking, the Cambodian coloration is recessive to the normal black gene.

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. Genetically speaking, the veil tail trait is dominant over the short fins.

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