Care Level: Very Easy. Will tolerate a wide range of water parameters including pH, temperature and hardness. Can tolerate higher nitrate levels than other fish and is hardy enough to withstand the cycling process. Will readily eat prepared foods and has no special care requirements.
Origin: Malaysia peninsula, Thailand, and northern Sumatra. Occurs in very still waters such as swamps, ponds, ditches and smal,l streams shaded by marginal or floating vegetation. Mainly freshwater, but some populations can be foound in brackish coastal swamp habitats.
Compatibility/Temperament: Peaceful Betta imbellis (Peaceful Betta) can peaceful live with other species. Not to exclude the fact that male can be together with other males + females what seems like fighting is just play it is just (mock fighting/ Bravado) they will do no damage to each other it is better to have a 2/1 feamale to male ratio if mutiple males are together. These are peacful and will not kill each other unlike thier agressive cousin betta splendens. warning DO NOT KEEP SPLENDENS WITH THEM THEY WILL KILL IMBILLIS.
