Behaviour question about Betta fish (Siamese fighting fish)

Just reading through this brilliant forum and have looked at a few of the posts on bettas.

I was hoping that someone might be able to help me out with a question i have.

Since Betta were originally a grey / green colour in the wild, how and why have they become so diversely and brightly coloured? I understand that it is due to artificial selection and breeding but does the aggressive / territorial behaviour / breeding rituals have anything at all to do with the fact that they are such stunning colours?

I've had a look on the web but havent really been able to find anything that goes into that much detail into the evolution and behaviour of the betta.
Anyway, not sure if you guys can help but any ideas, suggestions or info would be a great help.

Thanks again

Kind Regards
