The Assorted Half Moon Betta is a fairly new species of Betta that has come about through selective breeding. The Key characteristic of the Halfmoon Betta is its tail. The tail, when held erect, should form a half-moon shape of no less than 180 degrees. This beautiful and rare species is sought after by aquarium enthusiasts and makes a great addition to any home aquarium.



Watch that you do not over-feed the fish, and vary the diet periodically with live food as well as the occasional frozen treat and dry food.



Breeding is rather easy. The male constructs a bubble nest at the water s surface. 400 - 500 eggs are laid and fertilized and put in the nest by the male. After spawning the female should be removed, or the male will chase her and kill her. The male cares for the eggs but when the eggs hatch he should be removed as well. When the fry is swimming free you can start feeding with microworms and egg yolk. Later the fry can be fed with fine crushed dry food.


Compatible with

Lone male betta OR can be combined with Clown Loach, Corydoras Catfish, larger Gouramis, Mollies, Platies, Red Tailed Shark, Swordtails, Zebra Danio. Bettas are very territorial. Males will nip at fins and chase slow moving fish.



Like all labyrinthfishes, the Betta has an auxiliary breathing apparatus (labyrinth) that allows it to breathe air at the water surface and survive in small tanks or containers.
