Discover the allure of Betta Antuta, a jewel among aquarium fish. With vibrant colors and captivating finnage, this species adds elegance to your aquatic haven.

Detailed Description:

Appearance:

  • Betta Antuta, a relatively recent addition to the Betta genus, boasts stunning colors and elaborate finnage.
  • Males showcase vibrant hues ranging from iridescent blues and reds to striking yellows, while females display more subdued but equally elegant tones.

Size:

  • Typically compact, Betta Antuta reaches an adult size of around 1.5 to 2 inches, making them well-suited for smaller aquariums.

Water Conditions:

  • Temperature: Maintain a tropical environment with temperatures between 78°F to 82°F (25.5°C to 27.8°C).
  • pH Levels: Aim for slightly acidic to neutral water conditions, ideally between 6.5 to 7.5.
  • Water Hardness: Keep water hardness in the soft to medium range, around 5 to 15 dGH.

Tank Setup:

  • Aquarium Size: A tank of at least 5 gallons is suitable for a Betta Antuta, providing ample space for swimming and exploration.
  • Decoration: Mimic their native habitat with live plants, gentle water flow, and hiding spots. Subdued lighting enhances their vibrant colors.
  • Substrate: Use soft substrates like sand to prevent damage to their delicate fins.

Tank Mates:

  • Betta Antuta, while captivating, can be territorial, especially males. Consider keeping them in a single-species setup.
  • Compatible tank mates include peaceful, non-aggressive species such as small rasboras, Corydoras catfish, or snails.

Feeding Habits:

  • Omnivorous by nature, Betta Antuta thrives on a varied diet.
  • Offer high-quality betta pellets, flakes, and supplement with live or frozen foods like brine shrimp, daphnia, and bloodworms.
  • Feed small portions twice a day, ensuring they consume their meals within a few minutes.

Care and Maintenance:

  • Regular water changes are vital for maintaining water quality. Aim for at least 25% every week.
  • Provide a gentle filtration system to minimize water flow, as Betta Antuta comes from slow-moving water habitats.
  • Keep an eye on water parameters and adjust as needed to ensure a stable environment.

Behavior:

  • Betta Antuta exhibits curious and interactive behavior, making them delightful to observe.
  • Males may display flaring behaviors, especially during encounters or while establishing territories.
  • Provide ample stimulation with hiding spots and occasional changes in the aquarium layout.

Breeding:

  • Breeding Betta Antuta can be a rewarding experience.
  • Set up a separate breeding tank with fine-leaved plants and floating cover.
  • Introduce the male and female, and once eggs are laid, remove the female to prevent aggression.
  • Fry can be fed with infusoria initially, then progressed to baby brine shrimp as they grow.
