Alien Betta Male

Description

Available for Pre-Order

Alien betta: The alien betta (Male in this case), or otherwise known as Betta smaragdina, is an unusual species of fish with a unique and striking appearance. They are native to Thailand and are considered to be one of the oldest betta species in existence. They are also known as "Shield Betta" due to their hard, shield-like scales, which protect them from predators. The fish was ultimately given its name due to its unique and alien-like appearance. Its bright colors, large eyes, and hard, shield-like scales are unlike those of any other species. It is truly an enigmatic and exotic freshwater fish. When it comes to diet, alien bettas are omnivorous and feed on both plant material and insect larvae. To keep them healthy, they should be provided with granular or pellet foods supplemented with fresh or frozen foods like shrimp, worms and bloodworms. When kept in the right environment, alien bettas can live harmoniously with other peaceful fish, such as cory catfish. They do best when kept alone in a tank of their own, however, as they can become territorial with other fish if overcrowded.

Alien bettas prefer water temperatures between 72-80°F and prefer neutral to slightly acidic water with a pH level of 6.0-7.5.
They should also have ample areas of plants for hiding and swimming.
Alien bettas can be bred in captivity.
They will typically spawn in shallow water when conditions are right, and the female betta will lay up to 400 eggs in total.

The eggs should be removed from the breeding tank and placed in a separate container with fresh water and aeration, as the parents may eat the eggs. The fry should be fed small, live foods like brine shrimp and daphnia for their first couple of weeks. If all goes well, the fry should be able to reach adulthood within 4-6 months. Please do more personal research if this is something you are interested in.
