In a restricted space like a little aquarium a battle would more often than not finish with one fish dead. In Thailand fish battles are arranged with wagering on the result. This is a conventional game which is currently unlawful in Thailand, in spite of the fact that this does not imply that it never happens.

Females can be assembled with one another and one male in a sensible estimated aquarium. Generally there is no genuine inconvenience between them in spite of the fact that a tank some concealing spots is a smart thought.

The guys are normally substantially more marvelous than the females, having longer balances and increasingly extraordinary shading.


Battling fish are a tropical fish; 24 degrees C is an appropriate temperature. They can take at any rate 10 degrees higher than this, however won’t be agreeable any lower than around 18 degrees C. In an atmosphere like that of South Australia they need warming in the winter. The standard method for warming the tank is with an aquarium warmer. A 50w radiator is reasonable for a little Aquarium. On the off chance that you have a room that never gets chilly, at that point the Battling Fish can be kept there without an aquarium warmer.

They should most likely get to the surface or they can suffocate. In spite of the fact that they can be kept in little compartments this isn’t a perfect way. Like other fish they are influenced by water quality. A little tank is more diligently to keep clean than a bigger one, and generally you can’t put a channel in.


The Battling fish is some of the time portrayed as a meat eater. As I would see it, it is an omnivore with an inclination for creature based sustenance. In an aquarium, I prescribe that a decent quality Betta sustenance be utilized as the essential eating routine, and this ought to be differed with the expansion of the intermittent bolstering of live nourishment like mosquito hatchlings of daphnia. solidified nourishment like blood worms are additionally great.



Water is frequently utilized. A few people use it effectively, however not all water is ok for fish. Downpour, as it tumbles from the sky in Country regions is commonly great water. When it comes into contact with the rooftop and drains and afterward remains in the water tank with any leaves and so on which have washed in, it grabs contaminants. A portion of these are innocuous, however others can execute fish. In the event that water is the main sort of water accessible, at that point you should utilize it.

On the off chance that the Ph of the water is changed in accordance with be under 7.2 the smelling salts from the Chloramine ought not be hazardous.

There are likewise some water conditioners which expel smelling salts just as Chlorine. I suggest the utilization of one of these.

Sifted Tapwater

Some household water channels which have carbon cartridges will evacuate a large portion of the Chlorine and Chloramine. The channel cartridge should be in great condition. In the event that you have a channel it is a smart thought to utilize this water for your fish. Notwithstanding, in light of the fact that the channel may not expel all the Chlorine or Chloramine from the water, it is as yet a smart thought to utilize a conditioner to take no chances.

Ph is a proportion of acridity or alkalinity. A ph of 7 is unbiased. Beneath 7 is corrosive or more 7 is antacid. The perfect Ph for warriors is about 7.1, yet they can take moderate varieties from this. The Ph of water can change, so it is a smart thought to check it routinely.

Nourishments and bolstering

Like most fish, battling fish are omnivores, in the wild they will eat any creature or vegetable sustenance they can discover. They incline toward creature sustenances, for example, mosquito hatchlings (wrigglers) daphnia, and so on. In an aquarium they will eat every single ordinary sort of aquarium sustenances, however appear to improve on a nourishment intended for them. Likewise with practically any creature an assortment of sustenance is invited by battling fish. Try not to overload!

Aquariums and Partners

One battling fish with no other fish can be kept in a very little tank, gave that it tends to be kept warm. Battling fish are normally not a forceful fish and can be kept in an aquarium with other tranquil fish of a comparable size or littler.

These are a couple of the numerous sorts of fish appropriate as associates for battling fish in a sensible estimated aquarium.

Like almost all fish, battling fish will eat another fish if the fish is little enough to fit in its mouth. By and large a battling fish can be kept with fish as little as neon tetras without inconvenience. In any case, the infrequent battling fish may figure out how to get neons. I would propose that in a kept space battling fish ought to be by themselve. I am aware of at any rate two instances of a battling fish which has been placed in a pack with neons and has figured out how to eat them. Having taken in, the fish is probably going to keep on eating neons in an aquarium. Fish have very great recollections.

Battling fish are moderate and have long blades. They are entirely helpless against fish that pinch balances.

A portion of the fish that can be blade nippers and which I would not suggest as partners for battling fish are Tiger Thorns, Red Eye Tetras, Serpae Tetras, A few Cosmic systems and Blushing Spikes.

Another method for continuing battling fish is to utilize one of the Betta compartments. These go under a few names, however are comparable and enable a few male warriors to be kept in one aquarium.

Another, comparable, method for keeping warriors is to utilize a reproducing tank which buoys in an aquarium. Regularly these are use for reproducing fish, for example, Guppies, however they can likewise be utilized for keeping (yet not rearing) Battling Fish.

There are a few different choices for continuing battling fish. There are Pair and a Trio Battling Fish tank, just as numerous kinds of custom ones. The better ones are enormous enough to put a little radiator into one of the compartments. There is frequently enough conduction of warmth between compartments to keep them all warm enough.

Transporting battling fish

Regularly contenders are transported in a plastic sack. It is significant that there be some air (or Oxygen) over the water taken care of. The sack ought not be permitted to get freezing or exceptionally hot in transport. It is better that on the off chance that you are transporting a male contender that no other fish is in with it.

Life expectancy

Siamese Battling Fish are not exceptionally seemingly perpetual. Their typical life expectancy is around two years. The Male contenders ordinarily marked down in shops are regularly around nine months old, so on the off chance that you have had a male warrior for a year, it is as of now old and could kick the bucket of maturity.

Female contenders are for the most part around five months old when sold.

Reproducing Battling Fish

The Siamese contender isn’t one of the most straightforward fish to breed. It is viewed as a medium trouble fish. Full guidelines on rearing this fish would occupy substantially more room than this reality sheet, however since I am every now and again gotten some information about reproducing this fish, I will endeavor to give an exceptionally concise depiction of rearing. Before the fish can breed they should be in great condition; both the male and the female should be all around nourished for at some point previously. An expansion in temperature will some of the time incite the male to manufacture his home.

After the male has manufactured his home, you can endeavor to put a female in with him. Watch them! It isn’t strange for one of them to assault and attempt to murder the other. It isn’t generally the male that attempts to execute the female.

The battling fish is a home reproducer. The male forms a home of air pockets on the outside of the water.

At that point he allures a female to go under the home with him. They wrap their bodies round one another, and the female discharges her eggs while the male discharges his sperm to treat them.

After that the female sinks down in a kind of daze while the male rapidly gets the eggs in his mouth and place them in the home. On the off chance that he has not completed before the female recoups, she begins eating the eggs. This procedure will be rehashed until the female has no eggs left. The male at that point pursues her away. She ought to be expelled.

On the off chance that there is another female accessible, sometimes, a male will at that point actuate her to go under the home too and he will raise a lot of broil from the eggs of the two females, however you are expanding the risk of issues by having at least two females in while reproducing.
