I kept three imbellis in a 12x12x12 inch tank that was heavily planted up with java moss and provided plenty of hiding space. They got along fine aside from the occasional display and sparring match.

However, for a smaller pair of wild bettas I always think 10 gallons is a good starting point. Wild bettas can get tetchy with each other (particularly pre-spawning) and so you want the space for them to be able to get away from each other. Also if they do breed and you can't get all the fry out, it gives you some wriggle room in regards to maintaining water quality and giving the fry somewhere to hide.

Stiktos would be the easiest type to keep in a group. Males only flare very rare that they will fight. But stiktos are rare in the wild

What exactly did you mean by lighter? The bettas in Fabian's pictures look like they are a lighter color to me??

5G - 1 betta: orange dalmatian VT male "Ty"

you might have to have kepted wilds for you to know wat im talking about
but my pictures might shed some light on his bettas if its wild or not.

Due to the fact that @Fabins bettas have pure blood splendens characteristic in them im going to use one of my pure bloods and his betta to use as an example. I hope you dont mine me drawing on your bettas Fabin

In the wild,the caudal looks like a spade.
@Setsuna,do you have a female with him?
I think i can catch some wilds here in my area.

The kindness one does for an animal may not change the world........but,it will change the world for that one animal.Stop animal cruelty!!
