I have 2 theories with fish like endlers livebearer a fish that has beed very hybridized is still labeled endler. Also it could be the owner knows domestic Bettas have Imbellis Blood and labeled them such.

I have always been curious about this....how do we identify elements of imbellis gene in our bettas? I have heard that it is most recognizable if the betta has irredescent (sp??) scales. And apparently dragon scales are the extreme version of this trait. Anyone confirm?

All Domestic Bettas have B.Smarginia, B.Splendens, and B.Imbellis from what I have read.

Thank for this. Yeah, my pics aren't that good. I read on this forum that if you take them and put them in a small bowl or glass to take the picture it turns out better. Maybe I will do that some other time, but for now, I think the first picture on my last post is likely the better of the group.
Your comparison shot and notes are great. Thanks again!

I have seen Smarginia with stripes. It could be that those genes popped up making a domestic look wild.

This is very true but they have been mixed so much that they kinda have thier own bloods now. Just like when mixing a show betta with a wild creating dragon scales. Like one whole new line with a pure blood creating something new. I think bettas have endless colors and variations we just have to try and try till something new shows up

how do we know that? we are not the breeders of those that do. the ones that do, might carry the genes but not for long after mixing more of them together
