Siamese Fighting Fish are probably best known for their aggressive tendancies. You can never have more than 1 male in the same aquarium as they will certainly fight to the death. Even if there are no immediate threats to the fish, they will still require a place to hide in their aquarium. If there are no other fish around the Siamese Fighting Fish will even attack its own reflection in the aquarium glass. In the wild these fish feed on mosquitos and other small insects and generally inhabit warm, slow moving water.
