The Black Orchid Betta Male, scientifically known as Betta splendens, is a stunning and highly sought-after freshwater fish species that brings an air of elegance and beauty to any aquarium. With its deep black coloration and flowing fins, the Black Orchid Betta Male is a true showstopper.


The Black Orchid Betta Male displays a rich, velvety black body coloration, often with iridescent highlights that shimmer in shades of blue, green, or purple under the right lighting conditions. Their flowing fins add to their regal appearance, creating a captivating and graceful display. They typically reach a size of around 2.5 to 3 inches, making them ideal for small to medium-sized aquariums.


Known for their territorial nature, it is best to keep the Black Orchid Betta Male in a separate tank or in a community tank with peaceful tank mates. Providing hiding spots, live or artificial plants, and a calm environment will help reduce stress and promote their well-being.


Feeding the Black Orchid Betta Male is relatively easy as they are carnivorous. They will readily accept a variety of high-quality betta pellets, flakes, or freeze-dried foods. Supplementing their diet with live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp or bloodworms can also be beneficial and enhance their natural colors.
