Betta albimarginata


Betta albimarginata is a unique species of betta fish native only to the Sebuku river drainage in Kalimantan Timur, Indonesia. These fish are easily distinguished from other, more common betta fish by their patterned, often red bodies with elegant white borders along the margins of their fins. Like other betta species, these fish will do best in dim, low-current waters with access to air at the surface and plenty of shelter to hide and explore.
