The breeds of fighting fish can vary, although usually male bettas have the long, flowing fins that make these fish so popular. Females have short, rounded fins, similar to the original wild betta. It is, however, possible to find males with natural fins for sale. These are usually sold more for sport fighting than the pet trade. Females and wild males rarely have the bright colors bred into them and generally have dark brownish bodies with barred patterns and red and blue fins.

the male has long fins and the female has small short fins


Put two beta fish together in one bowl, if they start fighting, you know they are both males.

Male betta fish are really colorful and generally larger. Female betta fish are clear colored and small. Male betta fish are probably the easiest to find as well.

Male Bettas can live with female Betta fish except when they have laid eggs. Male Betta fish should not be placed in the same aquarium as another male Betta.

A male betta fish will flare to show off his brightly colored fins to a female. This can cause her to have an interest in him.

Male betta Fish are the aggressive ones. Although it is nearly impossible to find out the difference between female and male betta Fish. If you put in another fish in a male bettaFish tank, the betta Fishwill most likely kill the other fish. Unless the fish is female.

The male has large showy fins and much brighter colours than the female.

The male will either mate with the female or kill her if she is not ready to mate. Male Betta splendens will not live peacefully with any other fish of the same species. So the answer is no.

User Avatar

yes, female Betta fish do flare their gills usually at a male

User Avatar

She may not eat the male, but if the male is sick or weak, she may kill him. It's best not to have a single male with a single female unless you are breeding fish

User Avatar

Yes. Betta Fish do change their coloer every now and then. Or if you have a male, he will change his coloer if hes chaseing a female Betta Fish. Or if he sees another male Betta Fish.

User Avatar
