Hello, I was wondering if anyone is aware of any research going on
related to Betta Splendens or the Siamese fighting fish? I find it
very interesting, the fish does not occur in the wild, it is
considered domesticated.  The predecessor is Betta imbellas which
still occurs in the wild.  

If someone happens to know of anyone doing research, please let 
me know, or point me in a direction.
