Yes they are the most similar to domestic splendens out of all the wild species.

Yes, my water is slightly hard (most water in Minnesota has a lot of iron in it) and they do fine without any peat moss or manual pH lowering on my part.

Yes they like IAL but also do fine without it. Mine eat the .5 mm NLS and I supplement with the occasional frozen bbs or bloodworm. In most respects their care is the same as for Betta splendens.

I would say go for a purebred imbellis. I think that it's easier to predict the needs and behavior of a purebred imbellis.

Watching my burdigala pair trying to wrap for the first few times, about half the tank length away from the actual bubblenest. They are just randomly doing it in the middle of the tank right in view of everything.

I love watching those first few awkward wraps as they try to work out how things go haha.
