Plakat refers to the short tail
betta that is the most common in the betta hobby. It
is relatively inexpensive to obtain, and there is
abundant stock in the local fish shop. Most of us
will have experience keeping it in the initial stage
of our aquarium hobby. Plakat fighters are also bred
for fights where even large sum of money is
involved in the betting although in most places,
fish fighting is prohibited by local laws and
regulations. It is a tough fish that will survive in
the hardest condition of nature.
Today Plakats are re-engineered
to show on stage with enhanced colours and finnage.
The ones that reach 180 degree in its caudal is
known as Halfmoon Plakat. The thing interesting
about these fishes are they are very responsive due
to their fighting nature, and as their tail is
short, it tends to hold its shape longer through its
lifespan. A nice show specimen can cost as high as
any Halfmoons or Crowntail betta !
