    Just wondering if anyone here has any experience with this species. They've had a pair at my favorite LFS for a while and I keep stopping to watch them. Think theirs are in a 2.5 gallon, or something about that size. If they'd be suitable for my upcoming 5.5G I might consider that, but at this point I'm mostly just curious. I've read some species profiles on them and it sounds like they can be kept as a pair, are pretty easygoing in terms of temperament, and aren't too hard to keep. Kind of catches my interest, but I question whether a 5.5G would really be suitable for a pair. So, mostly just idle curiosity: has anyone kept them, and if so what was your experience?

    That is a great looking betta!
    They are a bit different and less aggressive than the splendins.
