Photos by: Henning Zellmer

Purchased as: Betta simplex (which they are obviously not)

They remind me more of B. pinguis (which Hennig has also got, from a different source). Ideas, thoughts...?

Just based on the last pic I'd say the opercle patterning is closer to B. obscura based on Tan and Ng's key. These fish are all showing stress patterning right Stefan?

Cake or death?

Yeah, stress patterns. Indeed when following the key or drawings the head mask fits obscura but for some reason I cannot (yet) explain I remain skeptical for the time being...
