The fighting fish of the Betta foerschi relationship – there are several very similar species, which are considered by some specialists to be only local varieties of the same species, namely Betta foerschi – are not only particularly beautiful, but also particularly interesting. They are mouth breeders, but they are, so to speak, at an intermediate stage of development between bubble nest building Betta species and specialized mouth breeders. The spawning process is similar to that of the bubblenest builders, the mouth-brood-time is considerably shorter with 7-8 days than that of the specialized mouth-breeders, who brood about 10 days.
Betta foerschi is a typical black water fish, which needs very soft and sour water for breeding, bred ones therefore are only rarely found in the trade. We just have a few XXXL pairs with a total length of 7 cm on offer.
For our customers: the animals have code 381423 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply wholesalers.
