In reality, Siamese fighting fish are a type of tropical fish found in the region, so called due to the tendency of the males to nip at each other's tails.
The gallery features hundreds of them displayed in bowls and cared for by professional biologists.
A few larger tanks with some odd and rather scary looking larger Chao Phraya River fish are also found here, along with an extensive garden area complete with a "historical walk" where you can stroll along a leafy path while reading information boards about the Phra Phradaeng area's history.
A large pond with a burgeoning community of swans is also found here. Overall, the gallery is one of the best green spaces of Phra Phradaeng, but unfortunately it's only open on Saturdays and Sundays, from 09:00 to 16:00. Admission is free.
The gallery is located towards the northwest of the peninsula and can be reached by bicycle path or by road. If coming by road, turn left off Petchahung Road if heading northeast, following signs for Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park, which is just before the gallery on the same road.
