The Betta Bible
Wondering about where Bettas come from?
How colour combinations work when breeding?
Just want a really good read, all about your favourite fish?
The Betta Bible by Dr Martin Brammah is the go to book for me, its great on Kindle in the fish room but nothing beats the the paper back version in my opinion!
Stolen straight from Amazon, here is an intro...
Everything you ever wanted to know about bettas in one place. The Siamese fighting fish Betta splendens (commonly known as the betta) is one of the most attractive and popular tropical freshwater aquarium fish of all time. Despite this, newcomers to the hobby often struggle to find the information they need to truly master keeping and breeding this spectacular fish for themselves. In The Betta Bible, Dr Martin Brammah combines the collective knowledge of some of the world’s most well-respected betta enthusiasts with his own hands-on experience of keeping and breeding bettas, in order to put all of that information within your grasp. Over 300 pages long and containing more than 150 colour photographs, The Betta Bible covers every aspect of the hobby, from taxonomy, anatomy and history right through to the various types of betta, how to breed them and their genetics. Whether you are thinking of buying your first betta, or simply looking to improve your betta breeding skills, this book is for you! “A must-read for both the novice and more experienced betta hobbyist alike.” - Dr Joep H. M. van Esch (co-founder of the Bettas4all Standard)
