Every once in a while I will post a new “Featured Betta” post, to make it easier for people to identify their bettas. There are so many out there, that’s it not as easy as you think! Here’s my first post, which features the Crowntail Betta Fish. Here are a few quick facts about them:
Facts About The Crowntail Betta Fish
- The betta featured in the picture above is a Blue Crowntail Betta Fish.
- The crowntails are one of the most popular (and available) betta fishes around.
- They have spiky fins, and when extended, it looks like a crown.
- Their tails are in a full 180 degree spread (or sometimes a bit less depending on their breeding.)
- The crowntail’s tail generally has the form of a teardrop.
- They tend to be less aggressive than the other types of bettas, but even so, males cannot be placed together.
- As most species, the female crowntail and male crowntail betta fish should only be together for the breeding period.
- Another interesting fact is that some male crowntails are shy and easily stressed out while others are the complete opposite. (It’s like a box of chocolate, you don’t know what you are going to get!)
Here are a few pics to give you an idea on what they look like:
