A betta’s scientific name is “Betta Splendens.” The name “betta” originates from a legendary warrior tribe known as the “Bettah.” Other common nicknames are “Siamese Fighting Fish” and “Rumble Fish.” Interest started more than 150 years ago when the Siamese kept these fish for ornamentation. The most common type of betta (the Libby variety) has long flowing fins and come in a wide variety of colors.

Wild bettas are found in ponds, ditches, rice paddy fields and slow-moving streams in Cambodia and Thailand.

The male betta is a solitary fish that quietly eats insects and prepares a bubble nest in case a roving female comes along.

Frequently Asked Questions

We carry Betta fish. Betta fish (also known as Betta splendens or the Siamese fighting fish) are a long-time favorite pet for both beginner and veteran fish keepers because of their colorful finnage and spirited personalities.

There are no “easy” pets, but to be fair, bettas are easier to care for than many other types of fish. Bettas do, in fact, need less space than other fish, and they’re hardier.
