The Male Veiltail Betta is also known as a Siamese Fighting Fish. These freshwater fish are known best for their beautiful fins and color. Bettas can breathe from their labyrinth organ which enables the fish to breathe from the surface. Minimum tank size: 1/4 gallon The Female Veiltail Betta is also known as a Siamese Fighting Fish. Known best for their beautiful fins and color. Bettas can breathe from their labyrinth organ which enables the fish to breathe from the surface. Minimum tank size: 1/4 gallon Also known as Siamese Fighting Fish, Combattant (Canada), Trey kroem phloek (Cambodia), or Cá lia thia (Vietnam). TheMale Veiltail Betta is well known for its jewel-bright colors and spectacular fins. Bettas are anabantids (Derived from the Greek Verb anabaino, meaning "to go up") which physiologically means they have two methods of breathing. Bettas breathe from their labyrinth organ which enables the fish to breathe from the surface. Bettas also breathe through their gills like other fish. Genetically speaking, the veil tail trait is dominant over the short fins. Bettas will "flare" their fins when disturbed or threatened. TheMale Veiltail Betta will attack another Betta and have been known to attack similar-looking fish. It is recommended that only oneMale Veiltail Betta is housed in an aquarium with plants and very little current.Veiltail bettas out of fashion?! No way in the world. I started caring for bettas around the same time I started breeding Tiger Oscars(1994- I was 8years old then…) I remember my first veiltail, Crimson, like yesterday. He was a beautiful deep red and his scales had a dark green and black shine as he would turn in his bamboo vase. He lived to be 3years old, and I grew heavily attached to him. I’ve also had double tails, split veils (…basically is a double tail/veiltail cross, has the veil length, but split of the double), crowntails, and although these fancy fish have been pretty, the veiltails have a permanent place in my heart. My eldest(my first – Crimson), largest(Nathan – was about 6inches in length, about half an inch wide. Was really social, people at work really missed him when he passed), smartest(Darkness – was trained to jump for food, and knew my voice from everyone else. Other people would see him and he would go to the back of the tank, as soon as I would say anything, he would be at the front swimming frantically for attention), and newest(Abel – nearing a year old) bettas, have all been veils. I even got my daughter into them(she’s 6) and already wants to try breeding to get her some uniquely-finned and really colorful females(breeders near me have very very basic bland females, to the point they are sadly unappealing 🙁 ) I really hope she does… Even her first was a veiltail female named Miah. So yeah, sorry for the ramble, but I really doubt veils will go anywhere, they are too heavily loved. Blue Male Veiltail Betta is also known as a Siamese Fighting Fish.

Minimum tank size: 1/4 gallon I am so worried about my male veil-tail betta fish….I need help! First of all, I bought him from a PetCo and he was the most active one there, swimming in his little cup. It has been a little over 6mos. now and I recently noticed he has been VERY lethargic. He won’t swim around, never flares his fins. Only if I tap on his glass or shake the bowl will he stir. But after a few seconds of swimming, he’ll just float to the top or stay at the bottom, motionless. He lives in a 1gal fishbowl with no filtration, some fake plants, fake mini coral reef, and a heater. Twice I have found him floating on his side on a plant, and on one occasion he was at a diagonal angle at the top of his bowl. Other than that, he seems fine. I haven’t tested his Ammonia and pH levels (because my dad says he doesnt wanna buy a testing kit), but I do use Betta Water Conditioners and I have always assumed that it would soak up all the bad stuff.
