i think the point was, a hybrid between a domesticated and a wild splendens, or a splendens to imbellis hybridisation (sometimes used to increase metallic tones in domesticated splendens.)

I honestly think VT Splendens and Imbellis. I'm not an expert or anything, but what I have observed has led to this tentative conclusion.

@Choclate: Almost every domesticated species (including, IMHO, humans) is a hybrid, and if you wanna get technical, I'm pretty sure that every species, period, is. But for the sake of every day conversation, the simplification of the term is how I use it, because those types of technicalities are literally black holes that have stolen much of my life

Not all humans only 4 percent of the Eurasian genome comes from neodrpthals. Cows, pigs, and Guppies are not hybrids although cows were crossed with different subspecies so I am not being technical.

When I pick out a betta I look for one that appears to be healthy and actively swimming around. All of my bettas I got who were in desperate need of help. I feel that when you are a true betta person you dont pick your betta the betta picks you. With all of my bettas they were ones that I was drawn to out of everyone there I saw them. They looked at me with those eyes and I knew that they chose me to take them home. I firmly believe that you know when that is the betta that you are meant to have.

When I visit the pet store all are the perfect choice every ounce and a while a few sick ones but most active, diverse in colors, diverse in fin types, and healthy/respond well. When I bought Carter he was already perked up.
