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 ensure the tank has a heater and a filter.

Do not keep two fighters together - they are extremely territorial and will kill one another, even if male and female. Depending on the fish itself, they can be kept with other peaceful tropical fish.
