    Which species of bettas? There are many.

  3. AJEWell Known MemberMember

    Let’s say crown tail
  4. david1978Fishlore LegendMember

    Crown tail is a type. So im guessing betta splenda vs whats considered wild type betta. Betta splenda as we know them donyt exist in the wild other then plakats. So the big fancy tail types are only bred in captivity.

    Huh, I guess I only now types then lol
    Why would anyone want a wild one, they aren’t as pretty?

    Heres a good link to help you with the different species and about them.


    Most of the wild type bettas are considered more community friendly and you can keep males and females together in a little smaller tank than i do with mine.

    -More Peaceful


    -Less beautiful (in most cases)
    -Taking wildlife- conservational and ethical issues

    In my opinion, it is bad to take wild caught fish.

    Cool, I would have thought the wild caught would be more aggressive can I keep multiple males?

    depends on the type some can go as trios with females some cant. Some males can go together in like a 55gallon tank. Do you have the money for a wild betta? Ive seen some go for $400cad

    That's crazy, I could buy an arrowana and its tank for that much

    Considering there are 94 species of bettas with all different kinds of care and requirement its so hard to lump them together. Separating fact from myth is very hard as well.
