Persephone betta pair
Betta persephone can be housed in pairs, species tanks, and community tanks. Pairs can be housed in a 5 gallon tank, groups should be housed in a 20 gallon tank or larger. Pairs should be given cover such as caves and plants. In a pair or species situation it is possible that fry could be discovered in the tanks.
Betta persephone comes from clear water environments and should have soft neutral water that is well filtered. They should be kept at mid 70s F. This species can also tolerate blackwater environments.
Females have an egg tube. Females ovaries might be visible via spotlighting. Males may be more intensely colored and have pointed dorsal fins. Females are rounder and show an egg spot.
Persephone is a submerged bubblenester so large leafed plants or black plastic film canisters are best for giving them a place to nest.
