Let me reiterate; this is a FISH, not a BEET! It is a BETTA (two "t's," pronounced BET-uh) not a BETA (one "t," pronounced BAY-tuh). Beta is the genus name for beets, while Betta is this fish's genus name.
Red Male Crowntail Betta also known as 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.
