The Flowing Fins of Siamese Fighting Fish

 

Visarute Angkatavanich is a commercial photographer currently living in Bangkok, Thailand. In an ongoing photo series, Visarute takes breathtaking portraits of Siamese Fighting Fish (Betta splendens). Many of the portraits capture these popular aquarium fish in motion, accentuating their large and vibrant fins.

Siamese Fighting Fish typically grow to about 7 cm in length and usually live around 2-4 years. Their popularity as aquarium fish and long history of captive breeding has created countless variations in shape and colour. Siamese Fighting fish are known to be aggressive and two males in the same tank will typically fight to the death.

Although commonly called a betta, that is the name of a genus not only containing this fish (B. splendens), but also other species.

You can find the entire series of fish portraits on Visarute’s 500px page and Facebook album. Hi-resolution digital versions are also available through Shutterstock.
