betta imbellis?????

I'm looking at a list of "tiny" freshwater fish for a tank for Christmas lol and I stumbled upon seeing "betta imbellis, peaceful betta" and I was like whatt?! lol

So I googled it and pictures of regular bettas came up. Even on IBC's website the imbellis page shows a plakat looking betta. Then I started looking more and found fish that look nothing like bettas splendens, more like "wild" bettas.

So what do they really look like? I'm finding mixed results.

Do any of you have any of these bettas?

Bettas that have dragon coloring were mixed to imbellis. They have wild forms as well as fighting strains and long finned types. They're peaceful when bred and never seperated but as soon as males are jarred they wanna fight.

I don't have any this is from what I've read.

imbellis are known for their fighting styles

-but yes, they look very similar to wild types of betta splendend.

however they have a luster to their scales, which was perfect to create dragons scales
