Details

There are many names for the particular betta color patterns but most are variations of blue and/or red colors. Fish pictured here are representative only. If you are looking for a specific coloration, contact a livestock department representative or simply allow us to choose one of our favorites for you!

Half Moon Bettas are some of the most sought-after and can be stunning. Like in the Delta Betta, the edges of the tail are straight but in Half Moon Bettas, they form a straight line when fully open so the tail forms a half-circle (or half moon). The rest of the fins are full so when the betta is fully flared, the fins may form a circular outline with little or minimal distruptions to the outline.

Bettas are one of the most beautiful of all the anabantoids (gouramis, or "air-breathers"). Their ability to breathe air directly from the atmosphere enables them to live in the stagnant pools and puddles in which they naturally occur.

Bettas have evolved a very intense territorial aggression to the point where they are best kept by themselves. They do not tolerate other males and females are only tolerated when breeding. This natural behavior and their ability to breathe atmospheric air makes them ideal for keeping in bowls and small aquaria. As long as the water is kept relatively warm and is changed regularly, they do very well.

Bettas are carnivorous fish and must be fed meaty foods. There are many special prepared Betta diets (flake/pellet) that are excellent foods. Blood worms, brine shrimp, and plankton are also excellent as treats. Keep in mind that a betta has a stomach about the size of it's eye. It should be fed an eyeful every day to maintain it's shape and health.

I got one three years ago named Rayne and he didn’t look like he was doing too good, but he quickly got better and I took care of him until he passed away a few days ago. This is a good place to get a healthy fish.
