A SIAMESE fighting fish with colors resembling the Thai national flag has been bought for a record-breaking 53,500 baht ($1,530) at an online auction, making it the most expensive Betta fish to ever be sold.
Pictures of the fish, with its blue, red and white horizontal stripes mimicking the Thai flag, went viral after its breeder Kachen Worachai posted them on a private Betta fish auction group on Facebook.
Kachen said Thursday he expected someone to buy the fish for a few thousand baht but was shocked when the bid hit 10,000 baht ($285) on the second day.
“I never expected my fish to go for this price,” he said.
The fighting fish sold is also known as a halfmoon Betta, which are popular aquarium species and were once used for Betta fighting matches.
