You've seen the little fish that come in cups at our local pet shops, but how muchdo you really know about them? How do they live in such small amounts of water? Do they really prefer solitude? Where did betta (pronounced BAY-tuh) fishoriginate? This introductory ebook will answer these questions and more.
Siamese fighting fish
, otherwise known as
betta fish
, are very well-known andhave been one of the most popular fish to keep. Being one of over 60 species belonging to the genus “betta”(BAY-tuh),
betta splendens
are one of the fewornamental strains making them easily recognized by their diverse vibrant colorsandlong flowing tail fins.Another feature that makes them unique to the fish world is related to their  breathing. I’m sure you’ve wondered like I once did,
“why are bettas sold incups, and how do they survive?”
I will explain how this is possible further onwith a diagram of the
betta
anatomy.

or 
betta splendens
were originally found in rice paddies and puddlesaround Siam(now Thailand) and other surrounding countries. They were first ahobby of Siam back in the late 1700′s and were collected even though they werenot the beautiful fish you would expect today. They were collected due to thedramatic aggression and flaunting display made by males when in the presence of one another.
