This gorgeous Halfmoon Plakat mix has been bred to have the Thai flag colouration, however for those outside of Thailand it’s also called the national flag Betta! Otherwise known as the captain America for our friends over in the US.
Striking colour scheme shot into enormous popularity after the record-breaking sale of a Thai flag betta in Bangkok to a businessman. A Siamese fighting fish with the colours of the Thai national flag has been bought for a record breaking 53,500 baht / £1200 in an online auction, making it the most expensive Betta fish ever sold.
