What in the world is a "peaceful betta"?

Aquarium Central (pah...) had written on one of the tanks, "peaceful bettas". Not that I saw any, other than the occassional siamese algae eater

Any ideas? Is it an actual betta or are they just stupid and just killed once again more of their fish?

Probably wild bettas, I'd guess Imbellis since they are commonly called peaceful bettas.

"imbellis" means "peaceful" or "non-fighting" in latin so i'm guessing that's what they were.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

It defiantly is and Domestic Bettas are B.Splendens, B.Imbellis, and B.Smarginia and King might be Domestic Betta, B.Pugnax.

Funny, the fanciful name they put next to it sure was not imbellis I am surprised somewhere around me actually carries embellis then. Not...that I would get them from that store.

There easily exotic Betta standards but harder than Betta Splendens like you have.
