Hi Mervin, actually the wild bettas like Macrostoma is rare and not found in abundance. The only areas where they can be found more commonly are often in protected national parks between Brunei/Sarawak. In fact Betta Brownorums and Taenietas are not commonly found found these days. For some reason, captive bred F4 Macrostomas from Penang have been reported to be weaker.mervin said:thank you all for all your kind comments.
these fellas are indeed rare, rare only in the hobby.
i have friends are actually went into the jungles of Borneo and found them in abundance.
unforunately the government of Sarawak and Brunei has tight restrictions on their export.
