Betta Albimarginata - wild type

Betta Albimarginata is a wonderful wild type betta. They can live peacefully in a group as long as their aquarium is well established, and setup with lots of plants/botanicals to provide ample cover and break the line of sight.

The Albimarginata males display a stunning deep red body with black and white rimmed fins, when displaying for a female their colour can become brilliant bright red! Females typically show minimal to no colour, some very high quality females may show a fair amount of red and have really nice freckles and body markings. 

These are mouth-brooding bettas and have only a few babies at a time, unlike the common bubble nesting betta splendens. They don’t build any bubble nests, the males will carry the eggs in their mouths after they do the dance with the female. They forego eating for multiple weeks while they shuffle a few babies tirelessly, until they are large enough and ready to venture out of the mouth of the male. 

The females are more aggressive than the males, so it’s important to keep more males than females if you are going to keep a group.
