PetWave source the majority of our premium freshwater fish from superior quality local Australian growing facilities. Although this can be higher cost than importing fish from Asia, it minimises the likelihood of your aquarium being affected by imported conditions and transportation stress.
Siamese fighting fish, or Betta splendens, are hardy, beautiful fish that are available in many colours and varieties. One of the most popular fish kept worldwide due their minimal care requirements, including their ability to be kept in small tanks with no filtration. Bettas are able to breathe air from the surface of an aquarium owing to a specialised organ known as the Labyrinth Organ.
Grows to: 7cm
Diet: Carnivores - Tropical pellets/flakes
Temperature: 22-28 Degrees C
Compatibility: Male Bettas are aggressive towards other male Bettas and fish with a similar appearance, they can be kept in tropical community aquariums with larger Tetras, Catfish, Rasboras or other peaceful fish. Please refer to PetWave's Aquarium Fish Compatibility Guide.
