The Siamese Fighting fish gets its name from old Thai tradition of hosting fights similar to ‘cock fights’ involving fish. The male fish were bred for aggression and for colouration. When it came to fight day, two opposing fish were placed in the same tank in order to fight. The fights often resulted in the death of one combatant.
Thank goodness this cruel practice has been banished. The beautiful colours however and long fins of the males, live on. Because of their aggressive nature, only one male should ever be kept in a tank.

Females have simlar colours to the males, although they tend not to be as intense as te colours seen in the males. The males will often ‘display’ to their reflections of the tank, believing it to be another fighting fish. A densely planted tank is a must for these fish. Although aggressive to others of the same species, the fish are good members of a community tank.

They have the interesting ability to breathe air gulped from the surface of the water, and also build bubble nests in which to hatch their young. The fish are carnivores, and will take flaked food, as well as freeze-dried food.

Ideal Tankmates include Tetras, Danios, Angelfish, Livebearers, Rasboras, Loaches, Plecos, and Catfish
