Siamese Fighting Fish are a family of fish native to Asia, in particular Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Cambodia. Fighting Fish are bred for their colour and tail types, from the regular veiltail to rare an exotic types like Half Moon Butterflys and Super Deltas. However as the name suggests fighting fish should be kept alone in a small aquarium of at least 1 litre. Fighting Fish make a great beginner fish, especially for children.

Fighting fish thrive on foods such as Hikari Betta Bio Gold and Hikari Frozen Bloodworms. We also sell a wide range of fighting fish aquariums, accessories and complete setups.
