Blue Avatar Plakat Betta are part of the Betta splendens genus and species that is popular among home aquarists around the world. Because of careful breeding the colorations and tail size and tail formation is quite expansive and adds to their prized specimen status.
With a cylindrical body that is typical among Plakats, they have stockier bodies with no curves. The way that light reflects off the body and scales in a rich blue color in iridescent splendor gives this Blue Avatar Plakat Betta its name. Adding to their interest is the deep blue saturated color present in all the fins of this male specimen.
The Blue Avatar Plakat Betta shares the same care requirements as other Betta splendens varieties. As such, only one male Betta should be kept in an aquarium. In their natural environment, Bettas live in heavily planted slow or standing bodies of water, such as floodplains, canals, and rice patties so do not require a large tank environment. Care should be taken not to house Bettas in jars or bowls even though their length at maturity is about 2.5”. With an easy care level, even beginning hobbyists can achieve success keeping this beautiful species of freshwater fish.
This specific Plakat Betta is a carnivore and should be offered a varied diet including quality flake foods, pelleted Betta food, and frozen or freeze-dried bloodworms and brine shrimp when fed in their freshwater aquarium.
