Betta Taeniata is one of the wild betta that is increasingly becoming harder to find as their wild population in known locations of Sarawak has decreased drastically over the last few years. The reason for the decrease is river polution as poor rural waste/rubbish disposal system here. This fish is a strong jumper and if you are keeping them, please ensure your tanks are properly covered. They thrived in clean clear soft water, pH6.0-6.2 and as most wild fishes in this region, keep the temperature around 25C. Heavy planting in the their tank and regular water change is a must.
