Top quality fish at its price. The Betta, or Siamese fighting fish, is among the most famous of all aquarium fishes. From the original wild specimens that come from south eastern Asia have been bred many shades of long-finned beauties that could vie successfully in colour and grace with many of other butterflies. Some other natives, on the other hand, are bred not for lovely colours, but
for more practical purpose creating males that fight bitterly when placed with another of their own sex.
Ikan cupang termasuk ikan yang terkenal diantara ikan-ikan penghuni akuarium. Dari ikan cupang liar asli yang berasal dari Asia Tenggara, telah dibudidayakan banyak bentuk ikan cupang bersirip panjang, yang dapat bersaing baik dalam warna dan keanggunan dengan ikan-ikan bersirip panjang lainnya. Beberapa ikan cupang alam yang lain, dibudidayakan bukan untuk warna yang cantik, tetapi untuk tujuan yang lebih praktis, manciptakan ikan cupang jantan yang bertarung mati-matian ketika ditempatkan bersama ikan cupang jantan lainnya.

Bloodline is important. Even if we spend a great deal of time and efforts training fighters, the fighters will still only have a small chance to win the game if they are not coming from a good fighter bloodline. Another important thing is health. Healthy fighters will fight their opponents with brave hearts, good fighting skill, and superb stamina.
There are various methods of training but all lead to fish health. In other words, training is just to make fighters physically healthy. An easy method is to keep the fighters in a suitable water condition (PH of 6.5 and temperature of 27C), and provide the fighters with wide swimming space. When the fighters swim, the excessive fat is burned, leaving the fighters with good muscle improvement that they need to boost their energy and stamina during the fight.
However, fighters do not swim here and there that often, so we need to entice them to move around. Remember, to entice not to force. Putting a fighter in a big tank (25cm long x 25cm width x 120cm height) is a smart way. Fighters always capture oxygen from free air not from water, so they need to swim up and down almost all the time. They can be kept in this big tank for as long as you like. Water change is every 3 days. Always use conditioned water (PH of 6.5 and temperature of 27C). Fighters need to rest fully prior to the fight, so it is wise to put the fighters in a 3-litre jar 3 days before the big day. Water change is every day. If you need to carry your fighters to the arena with small jars, put them into the jars one day prior to the fight. Use the water from the last 3-litre jar.
Do not feed the fighters that are about to fight. For example, the game is on Sunday, so the latest your fighters may eat is on Saturday.
Fighters that are carried to the arena must be in their peak condition (very healthy and aggressive), indicated by dark and shiny colour, wide spread fins, and flaring actions.
We as the owner play an important role in matching the fighters. Smaller body size means less energy and weaker body structure, so less chance to win the game. Please match your fighter with an opponent that is in the same body size or smaller. Compare the head size, jaw, fish length, and body thickness. Your patience to wait and find a good match determines if your effort to purchase and train your fighter is fruitful or not.
