Betta – Female Crowntail Aquarium Fish
The Betta fish is one of the most popular freshwater tropical fish in the world and easily recognized. The Male Betta is beautifully colored in many shades of vibrant hues diffrent from other freshwater fish, the female of this species is generally more bland, brown, with hints of colors, but like we say, you must have a female if you want more fish. This member of the Belontiidae family is very hardy despite their seemingly delicate beauty. Betta splendens require simple care which makes them a favorite for both beginner & advanced hobbyists!
Bettas should be in water that is a temperature of 75° – 86°F for best results. The Betta can be bred in your home aquarium quite easily. Once the eggs are laid by the female betta, the eggs are placed inside of a bubblenest that was built and tended by the male Betta. Fry will appear in 24 hours and must be fed very small food, such as crushed flakes, or Fry Formula Food.
