They're just a doubletail crossed with a halfmoon plakat. They're no different then the other types of bettas and require the same care.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

They can be community fish if they are with a different peaceful fish. But I wouldn't call the community fish. And yeah, they are no different than other bettas. 1 liter isn't cool. But they are easy care level. It doesn't mean easy care as in you don't have to do anything. It means easy to keep. Bettas do not require huge tanks or filters. And they are very hardy. So they are easy to care for in relation to other fish.

But the 1 liter thing is not cool.

Tanks- 55 gal(in progress)-Common pleco, Angels, lemon and rummynose tetra, blue rams; 29 gal planted- rasboras, corys, otos, clown plec, shrimp; 10 gal- juvenile goldfish; 6 gal planted- betta

Other Pets-Maggie(Tricolor Paint Mare),
Lily(Sun Conure), Zoe and Melina(Budgies), Leonardo- Bearded Dragon, Pilot and Phoenix(Golden Retrievers), Beckham(german shepard/akita), Myrtle and Richard(hermit crabs)
