The Females Siamese Betta is not as colourful as its male counterpart and has relatively small fins. These fish are not difficult to breed at home; females lay the eggs which are scooped up by the male and cared for in a floating bubble nest.
Siamese Bettas originate in warm water and should always be kept above 18ºC. (The ideal and recommended temperature is 25ºC) . In colder states such as Vic and Tas, they will require a heater during winter months.
Conditions in established home aquariums are usually quite suited for keeping these fish. Good animal husbandry is essential — ensure low population densities, plenty of hiding places, low bacteria levels and good water quality. In small tanks they will require frequent water changes and good water maintenance—we recommend a suitable water conditioner for your Betta.
Always take care that they are not restricted in their movements and are able to turn and swim freely.
