The Siamese fighting Fish, a beautiful animal not so familiar to the general public, and while the images below may look like art paintings, they are in fact real photographs of the magnificent Siamese fighting fish. Fish enthusiast and photographer Visarute Angkatavanich is the man behind these stunning photos, based in Bangkok he is a passionate artist with a unique style.
These Siamese fighting fish, or also known as betta fish are native to the Mekong basin fish of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Most of the time these fish are placed in an aquarium because of their unique beauty and despite their famous bad temper. You don’t want to get on these fish bad side. After seeing the images below, it’s no surprise that Angkatavanich decided to photograph them from the first time he ever saw them at a fish show roughly three years ago, Thanks to the sleek black background the betta fish look as if floating in mid air rather than swimming in waters, whatever he does, we like it!
