Right now we have especially large and beautiful Betta coccina from Indonesia in stock. As the pictures show, this time the males have particularly extensive blue patches on their flanks; the females of Betta coccina generally do not have blue flank scales.
Betta coccina can be kept well in groups, but even these comparatively peaceful fighting fish have fire and during the ranking fights there is slight damage to fins and scales, but these heal quickly.
For more information about the species see https://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/fish-archives/betta-coccina-2/
For our customers: the fish have code 379903 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply the wholesale trade.
