The Crowntail Betta fish is one of the most popular small freshwater species in the US for one main reason; their beautiful caudal fins! As the most popular betta, a Crowntail is colloquially referred to as a Betta, or its behavioral name of the Siamese fighting fish.
A male Crowntail Betta can become the centerpiece of any small home aquarium and is available in wide variation of colour. This fish is suitable for new fish keepers; however, it’s suggested if you’re looking to introduce tank mates that you have two years of experience.
The fish’s ancestors are known to be native to Thailand (formally Siam) and other parts of South-East Asia (e.g. Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia). They are renowned for their beautiful, and often colorful, ray-finned caudal and their aggressiveness nature; this can make keeping them as a beginner challenging.
