Click here now to see the list of various types of female Bettas for sale in our facility.

Scientific name: Betta splendens


Bettas are also called Siamese Fighting Fish, and the males will usually fight to the death if put in the same bowl, but females can often live together in the same aquarium. Click here to see several female Bettas living together in a 6-gallon aquarium.

Female Betta fish have shorter fins than most Male Bettas. But the body of a female Betta fish should be almost as big as the male's body, if you hope to breed them.

Keep the female separate from the male in a fish bowl or an aquarium and feed her lots of live and frozen food so she'll fill with eggs. Bettas are not easy to breed but not too difficult either. The fry are very small and rather difficult to raise in aquariums. Click here for more about breeding Bettas.

Before you try to breed and raise Bettas, you should practice breeding and raising some easier fish. Click here for more about breeding fish and raising babies.

Beta Fish?
The names Beta Fish, Fighting Beta Fish, and Siamese Beta Fish are often seen, but Beta is a misspelling of the word Betta, which in turn comes from the scientific name Betta splendens. The word Betta is a phonetic spelling of the word used by the people that live in Betta fish's natural habitat.

Customer Comments

I've been a Betta breeder for nearly 24 years. It makes me nuts when I hear and see the name "Betta" spelled and mispornounced wrong. Your site has Betta spelled wrong all over it. You have it spelled "Beta". This is a common spelling error when folks are mispronouncing the name.
The spelling error comes when folks say "bait-tuh", instead of correctly pronpuncing it "Bet-tuh" Please correct the spelling mistakes, as you are only fueling this all too common error.
Reply. Hello and thank you for your comments. We know some folks think they have a Beta and call it a "Bait-tuh". But we still want to help them learn how to take good care of their fish. No matter what they call it, and we hope along the way that they'll learn it's a Betta. So we agree with you, but so far hearing "bait-tuh" hasn't bothered us much.

Customer Comments

Bai-tuh, Bet-tuh, to-may-to, to-mah-to. I think we can all call it what we want since we'll probably never know the true pronunciation. I'm a little saddened by the fact that a Betta breeder of 24 years would have such a fit over a pronunciation.
I can see the point a little on the spelling, but you'd think that they'd be more concerned about how people care for and treat their Bettas rather than how people pronounce the name.
In my personal opinion, if you've been a Betta breeder for over 24 years and, in that time, the way the pronunciation of a fish's name truly bothers you, maybe you should take a step back and think about a couple things.
If you'll look in the first paragraph of the Betta breeders complaint you'll notice that they spelled 'mispronounce' incorrectly. "Hey kettle this is the pot, you're black!"
Reply. Hello and thank you for your comments. OK! We're all going to try to spell and pronounce all words correctly, and we're not going to let it interfere with enjoying our fish.

Appropriate Home
A Fish Bowl, the bigger the better, such as our 1.5 gallon bowl. Click here for more about buying a Fish Bowl Kit from us. Always keep fish bowls away from sources of hot and cold air such as heaters, heater vents, cold or sunny windows, drafts, air conditioner vents, etc.

Click here for more about Fish Bowls. A Female Betta will do well in a large Fish bowl. Several Female Bettas can live together in an aquarium.

Bettas usually do fine in a temperature range of 65 to 80 degrees F. But may do best in range of 70 to 75 degrees F. If the water is cool and your Betta is not eating enthusiastically, you should move it's fish bowl to a warmer spot or increase the temperature in the aquarium.
You should also be sure the temperature doesn't change too much, too fast. A change of 3 degrees per day usually doesn't cause stress or disease, but a drop from 75 degrees to 65 degrees in one day would not be natural or good for a Betta.

Recommended Diet
Floating food pellets labeled for Betta Fish plus freeze dried blood worms are both available in most stores that sell pet fish.
Bettas are not an active fish, so they don't require as much oxygen or as much food as energetic active fish do. Be careful not to feed your Bettas more than they will eat. Remove uneaten food with a small net after 10 minutes. Click here for more about feeding fish.

Before Female Bettas will fill with eggs and be ready to breed, they need lots of rich food. In addition to the food mentioned above, they should also be fed some live Black Worms and some live or frozen brine shrimp. Click here for more about Black Worms.


Keep a few Ghost Shrimp in the bowls with your Bettas. The Ghost Shrimp will eat tiny bits of food and help keep the bowl's water cleaner.

Bettas can also be kept in aquariums with other fish. Several females can live together in one aquarium, but male Bettas will usually fight, if kept in the same aquarium.

Good tank mates for Bettas are Platies, Mollies, Swordtails, Angelfish, Danios, Gouramis, a school of Bala Sharks, a school of Clown Loaches, and one Plecostomus.

Just a few years ago all the female Bettas that we saw were grey or tan. But now we get very colorful females, like the ones shown just above. These females look like they're beginning to fill with eggs. These are typical Female Bettas that were here in our facilities, when they were photographed by one of us.

Size and Lifespan
Female Bettas can grow to about 2" and live for 2 or 3 years.

Here is an email comment from Bradley, "How old my Betta was. My Betta reached 5 years and 7 months before he died. I kept him by the stove for warmth and he did great." We think that females can live about as long as males do.
