So yeah, the title says it all, I just wonder if this is a species of betta. This fish have the characteristics of a betta like, occasionally breathing in the surface, have stress stripes (before), slow swimmer, flaring (no pics though), have betta appearance. Take note that this is a wild caught one and there is plenty of this fish in our local swamp/pond/river (like you'll see at least one of this in every shallow spot). And by the way, I'm from the Philippines, advance thanks guys!!!
