Betta fish are native to Thailand, where they live in the shallow water of marshes, ponds, or slow-moving streams.
Male bettas have devoted fathers who build bubble nests for their young with their mouths and fiercely protect their babies from predators.
The Siamese Fighting Fish is the most common fish in Thailand and it has been intertwined with Thai culture for centuries.
