No he doesn't (or at least he hasn't yet). That could indicate he isn't a bubblenesting species in which case he could very likely be a coccina. We'll see what happens now that he's by himself and doesn't have to fight a filter current.

Well.. what ever he is he makes bubblenests. Today I found a small one in one of the corners of his new tank. The mystery continues.

After much discussion with wild people (that is, people who breed and raise wild bettas LOL), I've decided that he is in fact a smaragdina

Still not sure if I'm going to breed him or not but I do think I'll keep him. He looks nice in my npt :)
