Betta ferox

17. March 2017

Sometimes we receive wild collected specimens of that very rare species of Betta. The mouthbrooding species is known so far only from a very small area in Thailand (Bori Pat). Here the fish inhabit brooks with soft and slightly acidic water. The water temperature there is around 25°C. Maximum length reported is about 8 cm, male become generally larger than the females. Females have almost no shining scales on the body.

For our customers: the fish have code 381343 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
