Long fins is actually the dominant trait, therefore all wild types with short fins have the double recessive genes for the trait. However, as was mentioned, having long fins was not a natural trait, but because it is dominant it is easy to breed for.

I'd include some common diseases and their treatments as well.

You should definitely include some things about caring for bettas, such as the common misconceptions that they require little to no care, can be kept in small spaces, etc. :) I bet your report is going to be really good!

You can say that they are only agressive/territorialist towards others bettas, but can be quite shy towards other species.

How about mentioning that bettas are tropical fish ,and they need the same things all tropical fish need. A heated ,cycled tank ,with healthy ,mature biological filter.
How bout mentioning that bettas cannot speak but if they could,,they would prolly tell us they much prefer tanks of five gal or larger rather than the cute little bowls,bio-orbs,crittercages etc.
Or how bout explaining to folks that these fish when kept in small unfiltered, unheated,uncycled tanks, often times die within days,or weeks and become much more suceptible to infections due to poor water conditions.

I read somewhere that male bettas rarely kill each other in the wild because they can retreat and the only reason why they will kill in tanks is because they can't retreat once their done bullying each other. Someone commented on this and said they read it too, so you could add it as a fun fact. :) You could also put that some males actually enjoy each others company (two of mine that I've had together for over a year actually get very depressed when I separate them).
