Im very sure that you can just search in dirty creeks and dead dirty waters you will find some imbellis no doubt about that

Wild bettas can get tetchy with each other (particularly pre-spawning) and so you want the space for them to be able to get away from each other. Also if they do breed and you can't get all the fry out, it gives you some wriggle room in regards to maintaining water quality and giving the fry somewhere to hide.
thank you, looks like wild betta will remain a dream for me. no space for a 10g. though its a very nicely colored betta.
