There was a little light beam on the right so yerp. Also, the plants and the hardscape was a little highlighted, too.

Okay lol. Sorry if I hurt your feelings about the EE thing. You have them so you would know better than me, and if you say they are fine, then they are fine! :)

Are you sure those weren't Imbellis that you were seeing? they are dark bodied.

It was Setsuna's wild splendens male. I think in the video he was a little washed out making him look slightly paler than what he was.

Oops I see you are asking whether the dark-bodied fish she is seeing are imbellis.

Whenever I look up wild splendens, they're not black, they're usually light to medium brown.
like this pair:


Not trying to add to the confusion, just trying to help.

Unfortunately, if you google wild Betta splendens, a majority of the results are imbellis, or the other betta species like simplex (which are also brown).
