Always been betta as in bet-uh. Even if you look at the way it's spelt, you can see it's meant to be pronounced that way... If it was meant to be bay-tuh, it would be spelt beta. I didn't realise in America people often pronounced it the other way until I watched a youtube video. I was like 'eh?'

Americans say 'hawt' instead of 'hot'

I loved working at a fishing camp and discussing stuff like this with all of our southern visitors.

I sat "bay-ta" but sometimes "bet-ta" but both ways are correct. But "bet-ta" was meant to be the way everyone says... I just call the the betta fish.
