Oh ya!!!!!!!!!

Most wild bettas are mouth brooders, not bubblenesters and are more gill dependent, making them a no-no for a jar/bowl.

Most wild bettas need AT LEAST 50 gallons of water.

Not to push you away, but a 10 gallon tank may work for most bettas except B.Macrostoma I did research and found that only B.Macrostoma needs that big of a tank, so my bad.

Maybe you can breed them and help the wild betta population, which is endangered.

So most wild bettas need large tanks, but there are some that can be housed in a 10 gallon.

I think some of the other species of bettas are more peaceful than betta splendens and can live together.
