Male Betta splendens, Living

Product: (in stock)


Known as the Siamese fighting fish, the male betta has been used extensively in behavioral studies. Males are brightly colored with long, flowing fins. The female is not as brightly colored and has smaller fins. Male bettas will fight other male bettas and therefore must be kept separate. Given adequate space, more than 1 female can be kept in a tank together. Care instructions included.

Tropical fish such as bettas, gouramis, chinese algae eaters, guppies, plecostomus, and algae-eating shrimp are excellent choices for the classroom aquarium. All of our tropical species are hand-selected for size and health, so you can enjoy them for years to come. Aquaria for these fish require a heater to maintain proper water temperature (75 to 80° F). Should not be shipped over a weekend. Carolina recommends that you request your order to arrive on a Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday (or even a Saturday) to avoid weekend shipping.
