Difference between betta and Chinese and Siamese fighters
Was looking at starting a betta tank and the pet shop said there is no difference between bettas and fighters
Siamese Fighting Fish is an old common name while the scientific name is Bettasplendens
And what is the best tank size for one
Some people will say that 5 gallons is the minimum but I find they appreciate as much swimming space as they can get. The volume and height aren't as important as the footprint so a long, low tank is ideal if you can find one. I have a 6.6 gallon bookshelf tank that's about 2 feet long and it's perfect!
Thank you for the advice would love a betta tank such beautiful fish

I researched it on the internet and this is what I found:
