Siamese fighting fish

The Siamese fighting fish, also sometimes colloquially known as the betta, is a species in the gourami family which is popular as an aquarium fish. They are called pla-kad in Thai or trey krem in Khmer. They tend to be rather aggressive. This species is native to the Mekong basin of Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Thailand, the latter formerly known as Siam. The fish can be found in standing waters of canals, rice paddies, and floodplains. In January 2014 a large population of the fish was discovered in the Adelaide River Floodplain in the Northern Territory, Australia. As an invasive species they pose a threat to native fish, frogs and other wildlife in the wetlands. ... more on Wikipedia
