Primary colors for ceramic fish wall art for a Betta fish

The primary color is the medium rich blue color #184890. The blue fades into a lighter color blueish gray #cocod8 and then blends to a nice neutral yellow beige #ffd8c0 before finally ending in a light gray #f0f0f0 color. If were to create a ceramic wall art of this fish I would most likely bring in the three lighter colors (#cocod8, #ffd8c0, #f0f0f0)into the front of the fish to give more of a color balance.

Siamese fish fighting or otherwise known as Betta splendens, also known as betta, is a popular aquarium fish trade. Bettas is a member of the Gourami family and is considered to be very territorial. In particular, males are susceptible to high levels of aggression and will attack each other if they are housed in the same tank. If there is no means of escape, this would normally result in the death of one or both of the fish. Female bettas can also become hostile to each other if they are housed in an aquarium that is too small. It is usually not recommended that male and female bettas be kept together, except for breeding purposes, which should always be done with caution.

This species is native to the Mekong basin of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam and is primarily found in the Chao Phraya River in Thailand. Fish can be found in standing canals, rice paddies and floodplains.

Bettas usually grows to around 6.5 cm (or 2.6 inches) in length. While aquarium specimens are widely known for their bright colors and large, flowing fins, the natural color of Bettas is usually dull green, brown and black, and the fins of wild specimens are small. We only show intense colors in the wild when distressed. They were selectively bred in captivity to exhibit a vivid array of colors and tail styles.

Betta splendens feed on zooplankton, crustaceans, and mosquito larvae and other water-bound insects. A diverse diet of pellets or frozen foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, daphnia and many others can be served in captivity. They are usually insectivores and do not generally or naturally eat plants, but may consume food from other tank mates if appropriate, including vegetable matter.

In 1892 this species was introduced to France by the French aquarium fish importer Pierre Carbonnier in Paris, and in 1896 the German aquarium fish importer Paul Matte in Berlin imported the first specimens from Moscow to Germany.

What is interesting is that in the wild, betta spar just a few minutes before one fish goes back. Precisely bred for heightened aggression, domesticated betta matches can go on for a long time, with winners decided by their willingness to continue fighting. After the fish retreats, the match is over.
