Betta Splenden

This is a Betta Splenden also better know as Siamese Fighting Fish.
They're originally found in shallow waters around Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia,Vietnam and parts of China.Bettas love the heat and as the water temperature becomes cooler bettas become more lethargic.They have a special respiratory organ that allows them to breath air directly from the surface. We have a male Betta (see above and below), males are prettier than the females, they have more flowing fins, they can not be kept with other male bettas as they will fight until one of them dies hence the name Fighting Fish, they are better off on their own.

A nice size tank for swimming.

This is his bubble nest, once the
females eggs have been fertilized
he puts the eggs into the nest and 
guards them until the babies are born.
