The image is an example only. These fish come in many different colours and patterns that can greatly differentiate.

Male Fighters are extremely popular pets because of their exotic finnage and bright colours. In nature these fish inhabit very weedy habitats and are perfectly adapted to living in small spaces. If kept in a nano tank or other small receptacle, ensure the Fighter is not kept too cool.
