Anyway the above two pictures are a pair of Malaysian fighting fish as you might find them in the wild. In the wild fighting fish are native to the paddy fields of Malaysia and Thailand, and unlike the long finned iridescent variety you might commonly see in fishbowls in pet stores, they tend to be dull and brown in colour. Meanwhile, decades and decades of selective breeding have produced some of the most beautiful varities of fighting fish there are!
|my own Mr. Rainbow during water changing. Don't worry he's NOT DEAD!|
But you know what the best thing is? Its that they're highly responsive and alert! You know most people think that fish make dull pets but you know I just find it so adorable when I scratch my finger on the top of Mr. Sheffield's CD Container tank and he responds to it like there's no tomorrow! All in all definitely a pet I would recommend getting to teach a kid responsibility. They're so hardy I've had both of mine on my study table for more than a year now and they've lived through both bloat and fin rot without any medicine at all! One change of water and all was good. Anyway, big day tomorrow so~ ttfn TATA FOR NOW
