The Tiger Betta, a pinkish, elongated fish that occasionally has shaded bars on its flank and iridescence, is native to Western Borneo. It is related to the Siamese Fighting Bettas and to Gouramis and, like them, in addition to gills they have a lung-like labyrinth organ to take oxygen from the air (allowing them to live in oxygen-poor water habitats). They are at high risk of becoming extinct in the wild. Male and female have similar appearance and can grow to some 13cm (5 inches) long. Females lay fertile eggs which males mouthbrood and infertile eggs for males to eat.
