Betta Rutilans from Kalimantan Barat is one of the small Betta from the freshwater peat swamps in that region. Their wine reddish colors actually helps camouflage them in the shallow blackwater streams. Their habitat is similar to those of Betta Brownorum and other members from the Coccina group. They are generally bubblenesters but have been known to mouthbrood as well. They can be kept in community but needs lots of hiding places and space as fighting occurs during spawning condition.
