I choose the betta fishes theme because they are so cute and colorful they live in normal water and show their colors. The betta was first discovered in Southeast Asia. Making its home in rice paddies, drainage ditches, and the warm flood plains of the region, the betta became accustomed to frequent storm flooding and devastating droughts. The cyclic, drastic changes in its environment helped the fish to adapt – becoming a true labyrinth fish. A labyrinth fish has the unique ability to breathe oxygen directly from the air and also take in oxygen from its gills. As a result, bettas and other labyrinth fish can survive for short periods of time out of the water and if needed, can inhale the air around them.
This also explains why a betta can sustain itself in stagnant, oxygen-deficient water. Although bettas can tolerate small spaces and poor water quality, they do best in small aquariums (at least two gallons) with regular water changes. The preferred water temperature for a betta is 76-82 degrees F.
Bettas have several different tail shapes – the most common being the “veil tail.” Other tail shapes include the “half-moon,” “double tail,” “short-finned fighting-style tail” and “crown tail.” Bettas normally live 2 – 3 years, but there have been a few cases of bettas living well into their teens.
The betta is known as “plakad” in its native Thailand and has often been referred to as “The Jewel of the Orient.” Betta fish can recognize their human guardians. They usually swim about excitedly when they see their guardian approaching. They are very curious and will inspect new items put into their tank, which can help keep them mentally stimulated.
