Caring for your Siamese Fighter

I’ll fight to the death with another male and if you introduce me to a female at the wrong time I might just kill her too.

I like a small tank with a slow flow filter and some plants; if my tank is too big I might get depressed and lose all of my pretty colours. Please keep me away from small fish prone to fin nipping.

I like King British Tropical Mini Pellets as they are; a great source of protein and help avoid digestive upset.
