Betta Splendens Complex.
IUCN Red List: Least Concern (Not a concern at the time IUCN last updated)
This betta can be found in various areas of asia, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam.
These are Quality Betta Imbellis from a reputable breeder from Thailand. Beautiful coloration, especially on the cheeks. All males come from the same lineage and are generally similar.
Royal blue lacks the metallic layer above so only the iridescence below are shown. Please note that royal blue bettas do not breed true so they are not often sold in pairs.
These fishes are sometimes hybridized with other species to bring out better colors and finnage. They are aggressive by nature and males should be kept alone unless you are breeding them.
Temperament: Males are VERY aggressive and should be kept alone or in tanks with non-male betta mates. Can be kept in a planted community tank of multiple females if there is adequate space.
Max Size: 2.3 inches
TDS: 60 - 200 (We keep them in soft water with low TDS to match our other wild bettas but they are more tolerant of water conditions.)
pH: 6.5 - 7.5
Temperature : 75-85 (much better coloration at warmer temperature above 78 degrees)
Diet: Carnivorous, we currently feed them live blackworms, frozen bloodworms and pellets.
