Betta splendens come from rice paddies and klongs in southeast Asia. However, most of the bettas you can buy at pet stores are many generations removed from their wild cousins and have been bred for better color and more elaborate fins. Here's a link to a betta mythbusters article written by one of our moderators, Lupin.

The best food to feed them is a staple diet of a high quality betta pellet food. A lot of people use Hikari Bio-Gold betta pellets. Feed 3-4 pellets twice a day. One day a week the betta can fast (that means don't feed it) to clear up its digestive tract. Once or twice a week, frozen blood worms, frozen brine shrimp, or live blackworms can be substituted for one of the betta's regular pellet meals.
