From the Betta Splendens Complex.
Quality Betta Smaragdina bred from a breeder in Indonesia. A very beautiful betta with a variation of metallic green and red on its body and fins. These are kept in our hygenic temperature control drip system. All males come from the same lineage and are generally similar.
IUCN Red List: Data Deficient (Not enough information at this time)
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.)
Temperature: 75-85 (much better coloration at a warmer temperature above 78 degrees)
Diet: Carnivorous, we currently feed them live blackworms, frozen bloodworms, and pellets.
