Wild caught Betta sp. Api Api from Riau

Betta sp. Api Api are one of the smaller betta species. Their body is a beautiful red color and they have reflective blue eyes. You can see a white accent on the top of their dorsal and caudal fin.
IUCN Red List: N/A (but we expect this species to be endangered as well)
Temperament: Moderately aggressive, males can be territorial when establishing breeding grounds. However, because of their small size, you can keep multiples pairs as long as you have enough space and cover. Expect fin nipping. Recommended 1 pair per 5 gal.
