International Business Times

A Siamese fighting fish with colours resembling the national flag of Thailand has broken the record of the most expensive fighter fish ever sold after it was bought for a record-breaking amount at an online auction in Bangkok.

The fighter fish, which is also known as the Betta, is native to the Mekong basin of Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand and are extremely territorial and aggressive, so much so that they are called pla-kad (biting fish) in Thai.
