The Peaceful Betta is a close cousin of the Siamese fighter but without the fight. It prefers heavily planted tanks and is not overly keen on large open areas. They are tolerant of a wide range of water chemistry and temperature as their natural environment is very variable.

    I took delivery of a pair of these B. imbellis yesterday. They are quite fearless and very inquisitive. When they were introduced into the tank they didn't hide at all but started exploring, nibbling at plants etc. They don't stay at the water surface like B. splendens but swim in every part of the tank and sometimes rest on the bottom. They immediately investigate every new thing that is put into the tank and I have to be careful not siphon them up when I am draining the water. The problem is going to be keeping them amused, so I have ordered some nano moss balls which I read they like to play with.

    I love the casual way they swim, hovering like small barrage balloons in the water. They don't have much colour yet, I suppose because they are juveniles.

    I bought 6 of these which arrived yesterday and within an hour of them being in the tank they were already foraging for food and eating. Absolutely beautiful fish which work well in my Southeast Asian tank

    Wonderful fish, always active and inquisitive. Frequently comes up to the glass to look at me. All he personality of a fighter without the homicidal tendencies.
