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.

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.
