Asia; Blue band mouthbrooders are to be found in Indonesia and Kalimantan.


Males tend to be slightly larger than the females with more colouration, in fact the females can look quite drab compared to the males.


Add floating plants to the breeding tank with plenty of hiding places. The water should be soft and acidic. These fish are mouth brooders with the male doing the brooding. They will spawn near the substrate and the female will spit the eggs to the male. The incubation will normally last for 10 days; the fry will then be released. They can be fed on newly hatched brine shrimp or micro worms.


The expected life span for Blue band mouthbrooder is 3-5 years.

Short description

Betta enisae are a very peaceful species and can be kept in a community tank. They prefer a heavily planted tank with acidic water.
