Another mouthbrooder type betta originating from South Kalimantan in Indonesia. These can be maintained in a pair or a group. Males are generally larger with more iridescent on the body. A second photo shows one snacking on a crane fly that got a little too close. This betta appears to be very peaceful and can be kept in groups.
Temperament: Peaceful. Can be kept in pairs or a group.
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.
