Posted by Team ADI on

Betta fish, also called siamese fighting fish, are one of the most easily recognized fish species.  They’re known for their gorgeous fins and wide variety of colors.  Did you know that betta fish fins have taste buds?  Did you also know that betta fish are perfect for beginners? Here are 4 reasons why:


  • 1. Betta fish are kept separate when sold.  As a result, they are accustomed to living in solitary environments.

  • 3. Betta fish live in small pools in the wild, so they are adapted for living in small homes.

  • 4. Most other fish for smaller tanks are smaller in size and can’t tolerate travel as much, but bettas are larger and transport much better. They’re known for being a hardy species.
