Plakat Fighter Betta


Plakat Fighter Betta 

Plakat is short for Plakat Thung - which means "fighter fish" in Thai, and were once a specific wild breed but now this term is used in general for larger round tail bettas. Round tail bettas tend to be more aggressive and the fighter strain is not only more aggressive but also a bit larger than other betta splenden variations.

The most "true fighter" strain is black but round tail plakat bettas come in all colors.

Fish pictured here are representative only, though most true plakats are primary black in color. If you are looking for a specific coloration, add a note to the order or simply allow us to choose one of our favorites for you!
