Description

 The Betta channoides, also known as the Snakehead Betta, is a captivating freshwater fish native to the Mahakam River basin in the province of Kalimantan Timur (eastern Kalimantan) on the island of Borneo, Indonesia. Let’s dive into some fascinating details about this species:

  1. Appearance:

    • The Snakehead Betta features vibrant colors and intricate fin patterns.
    • Its slender body and short fins give it an elegant and streamlined look.
    • Depending on the individual, you may find variations in color, including shades of red, blue, and iridescence.
  2. Habitat:

    • In the wild, Betta channoides inhabits shallow forest streams with brownish, acidic water.
    • It is usually collected among leaf litter and marginal plant roots.
    • These dark, tannin-rich waters provide a natural environment for this captivating species.
  3. Tank Setup and Care:

    • For aquarium care:
      • An aquarium with base measurements of 45 cm × 30 cm could house a pair or a small group.
      • Driftwood roots and branches can be used to create shady spots.
      • Dried leaf litter adds a natural feel and provides cover for the fish.
    • Water parameters:
      • Temperature: Maintain a range of 24°C to 28°C (75°F to 82°F).
      • pH: Keep it between 6.0 and 8.0.
      • Hardness: 10-28 dGH.
  4. Behavior and Breeding:

    • Unlike some other betta species, the Snakehead Betta is less aggressive.
    • It can be a good choice for a community tank but monitor interactions with tankmates.
    • Breeding Betta channoides can be rewarding, although it requires expertise.
    • Their lifespan in captivity ranges from 4 to 6 years.

In summary, the Snakehead Betta’s unique beauty and lesser-known status make it a captivating addition to any aquarium.
