I think salamander is more pink and pink tones. Lavender is bordering purple and violet tones.
Honestly, I think it also has to do with the individual's opinion.
I think the top is lavender, and the bottom pic is salamander (he was VERY pink)

bottom boy isn't either. 8V

i've honestly seen the terms 'salamander' and 'lavender' used for fish that look almost identical. i think lavender's more purple, and salamander's more reddish/pinkish, though.

My understanding was completely different. I thought a lavender was a red betta with blue iridescence while a salamander was a three colored betta: body one color, base of fins a second color, and tips of fins a third color. What three colors it is doesn't matter.

I get my information from the internet, however, so its accuracy is not verified.

I think Lavenders and Salamanders are the same.. except a lavender can have the full color or can be a BF. but a Salamander has the same color tons as a lavender yet has a thin white band on all its fins including the ventrals

My first betta ever ( ;_; ) was a salamander! He was actually much more of a maroon red color in person, but had the blue iridescence.
