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.
A Betta fish makes a great companion, especially if you don’t have the time or room to care for a pet with greater needs. If you want a truly special fish, choose the Elephant Ear Halfmoon Plakat Betta. This colorful and graceful live Betta fish comes with large pectoral fins that look like an elephant’s ear.
Betta fish are a great option if you want to keep a pet at work, in a small apartment or in a dorm room. They can comfortably live in just a liter of freshwater and are very easy to care for. These bright and beautiful fish are a joy to watch, especially as their graceful fins and tail fan out in calm water. Unlike other live fish for sale, live Betta fish breathe from a set of gills as well as a labyrinth organ, which allows them to breathe from the surface. Watch your Betta, and you’ll notice the fish swim to the surface to gulp air.
The Elephant Ear Halfmoon Plakat Betta is a special live fish for sale. Its large pectoral fins look like an elephant ear, giving this Betta a look that is unique among live Betta fish. The second part of its name refers to the fish’s tail, which has a rounded edge like a half moon. Plakat Bettas typically have shorter fins than most other Bettas and closer resemble the wild variety of Betta splendens. Watch what happens when your fished is surprised. Your Elephant Ear Halfmoon Plakat Betta will flare its fins and tail to look intimidating.
If you are considering a live fish for sale, a Betta really is a wonderful choice. You’ll get beauty and low maintenance in the same package. Just take care to meet the needs of your new pet. Bettas do not do best in the company of other fish and are more successfully kept when housed alone in an aquarium with plants and very little current. Please note that Betta supplies, like an aquarium, plants and fish food, are sold separately.
