Halfmoon Plakat Bettas are part of the widely popular Betta splendens genus and species. Careful breeding has created an expansive variety of colors and tail sizes, making them prized specimens.

Plakats have a cylindrical body, with no curves and a half-moon-shaped tail fin. Their dorsal fins are strong with distinct rays.

Betta splendens varieties, including the Male Halfmoon Plakat Betta, only require one male fish per aquarium. In their natural environment, they live in slow or standing bodies of water like floodplains, canals, and rice patties, and don't need a large tank. Avoid housing them in jars/bowls, as they reach up to 2.5” in length. Easy to care for, even beginners can keep this beautiful freshwater species.

This Halfmoon Betta is carnivorous and should be provided with a balanced diet comprising of quality flakes, pellets, frozen/freeze-dried bloodworms, and brine shrimp.

Approximate purchase size: 2”

Care Parameters:

  • Ideal Temps: 75-80f
  • PH: 6.5-7.5
  • GH: 70- 300 ppm
  • Temperament: Aggressive (should NOT be housed with other bettas)
  • Due to their Marble genes, Bettas change colors through out their life!
  • These are YOUNG males, and fins are not fully developed yet

 These are not your sad little pet shop Bettas stuck in a cup of stagnant water. Mine are kept in their own space with shelter, leaf litter for tannins, and live plants. They are fed Baby brine shrimp, tubifex worms, frozen foods, flakes and pellets to get them used to a variety. Gotta grow those tails!

It has to be said: Betta fish do not belong in anything smaller than Three gallons of water volume. They need room! 

It is also much harder to maintain the water quality in such a small space. Give the poor thing at least five gallons!
