Siamese fighting fish are bettas. That's what we call them in australia. It's silly though. I'd much rather call them bettas. But if you go to a shop and ask for a betta you usually get a funny look. Lol.

Bettas will attack guppies because they confuse their fins for another betta. In cramped spaces, they will lash out at anyone.
