Submitted by on 9 August 2010 – 17:30

Sorry for repeat topic about “How Betta Splendens Overseas the world”. I just hope to make this blog become completely betta splendens reference.

On this time, i attach a map which describe where is betta splendens come from. check this out.Betta Splendens Overseas

Betta are native freshwater fish from Thailand (formerly Siam) and Cambodia (formerly Kampuchea). The above map outlines Bettas in the wild. (red areas)

Although these beautiful fish were not seen in Europe untill the 1800’s, they have been cultered and kept in Thai households since the 1200’s.

Bettas seen in todays aquariums have undergone centuries of selective breeding and have become far more aesthetically pleasing than the original ‘Wild’ Betta.
