Whoah! you've given me something to think about!

my little 'mini' looks just like your first picture! It's still tiny and was sold in a cup that was marked "F" for female - but was the only one like it on the shelf full of huge finned veiltail and crown tail males.

I was thinking it was just really too young 'cupped' for sale - but, could it be a different type of betta? ... I guess I will have some research to do. - and pictures to take to post and ask more questions.

That rule is mainly directed towards the four species of fighting betta. Betta splendens, betta smaragdina, betta imbellis, and betta raja. Most other sprecis can be housed in large tanks together.

I think he/she is a simplex or some other species. Does he/she blow bubblenests? Have you ever had wild bettas before?
