There was a little light beam on the right so yerp. Also, the plants and the hardscape was a little highlighted, too.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Okay lol. Sorry if I hurt your feelings about the EE thing. You have them so you would know better than me, and if you say they are fine, then they are fine! :)

Are you sure those weren't Imbellis that you were seeing? they are dark bodied.

It was Setsuna's wild splendens male. I think in the video he was a little washed out making him look slightly paler than what he was.

Oops I see you are asking whether the dark-bodied fish she is seeing are imbellis.

Whenever I look up wild splendens, they're not black, they're usually light to medium brown.
like this pair:


Not trying to add to the confusion, just trying to help.

Unfortunately, if you google wild Betta splendens, a majority of the results are imbellis, or the other betta species like simplex (which are also brown).
