They are small, they live underwater, and they are pink. And they can display all kind of behaviors.
This little fellow had a curious nature. It came to watch an exploration team.
Pink betta fish
The betta fish has its origins in Thailand, where it is known as “plakad.”
They look cute, and they are called “The Jewel of the Orient.” However, they can be very aggressive. Bettas will fight with each other, regardless of gender. They prefer to swim alone and also need a comfortable place to hide.
The most common tail shape of betta fishes is the “veil tail.” There are also other tail shapes, like “half-moon,” “double tail,” “short-finned fighting-style tail” and “crown tail.”
Usually, the betta fishes can live up to 2 or 3 years, but there have been a few cases of bettas living well into their teens.
Indian glassy fish
Indian glassy fish can be found in South Asia. The adult fish can grow to a maximum length of 80 mm (3.1 in).
