Title: My trip to Betta Farms in Rayong
Plakad - July 28, 2007 03:33 PM (GMT)
The last weekend I and my friends from Thailand Betta Network
(A small group of hobbyist betta breeders) visited the betta farms in Rayong. Rayong is one of province that has a lot of betta farms in Thailand.
The first betta farm that we visited was Benbetta. Benbetta farm is a small farm; house and farm are in the same area.
Benbetta concentrates in fancy betta. He also showed us his Giant fancy betas that he had developed more than 3 years.
Benbetta was teaching us how to select the female betta for breeding, our member taped it for other members that were unable to participate this trip.
After we had left Benbetta, we visited to Niwit betta. The road to Niwit farm is not good so we need to walk.
These are their betta spawn tanks. There are around 40 – 50 tanks.
Niwit allowed our members to select the female from his tank by ourselves.
Sample of bettas from Niwit’s farm.
After visiting Niwit betta farm, we went to Bluebetta farm. Bluebetta farm has nice landscape and is well-organized betta farm. All our members are really appreciated.
The last farm that we visited that day is Dapbetta farm.
Betta pairs are introducing in these foam boxes.
Hatched fries are moved to these tanks.
Before we left Dapbetta farm and Rayong, we took the picture together.

That is amazing!!
Thank you for posting those pictures here, and taking us on a tour with you.
Niwit and Suporn are very well known here.
I actually have a pair of golds from Niwit in the spawning tank right now, and I think Suporns fish are second only to Sawaruts..
Sawarut has the fins, but Suporn has the balance.
Breed the lines together, and that is an awesome fish, lol.
Again, the pictures and tour were wonderful!

Wow that is truely amazing Plakad. Thank you is not enough for taking us all on your tour with you! Absoultely incredible to see how they raise and spawn the bettas there. I only hope to some day be able to artificially raise bettas like that. Although our climate is never very steady to do such. Out of curiosity, is there a reason they use concrete and styrofoam basins? I know a few people here have used plastic tubs with some success. But I didn't know if it was just what is easiest available or if it's so the temperature has less fluctuations. Perhaps one day we can all come over and get a tour again in person. Thank you again!

Thank you SO much for that tour! I have only seen a few pics of Thai betta farms, but all of these pictures were great!
I really like how organized the Bluebetta farm looks. You can just tell that they are very professional about it, and the quality of their fish shows it. ;)
THANK YOU!!! :D :D :D

I wonder if I could to those farms and buy a whole bunch of bettas then bring them back to California. I bet it'd be cheaper and I'd just have to worry about customs. Nice pictures, now I really want to go on tour.

I think we all want to go, lol.
