Half Moon Betta Male (Betta splendens)

$17.99

Probably the single most popular fish kept around the world, the Betta or Siamese Fighting fish has been popular in its native Thailand for centuries, and has been bred into dozens of color forms and strains. The half moon or moontail variant is a popular strain with an elaborate full tail which creates a half-moon shape when extended . Incredibly hardy, and with the ability to breathe air from the surface, these fish are popular “bowl fish” but really will do best in a small aquarium with a heater and some form of filtration. As their name implies, males of this species will fight and must be kept singly but females can be kept in groups.

Assortment note: Our assortment includes a variety of colors including blue, red, green, purple, and others. If you have a specific color you’d like you can request it in the order notes and we will make our best effort to select that color if possible.
