    I’m totally agree with Colin, it’s really frustrating ūüė•

    It sure that there are some variations in body shape or fins with age, there also great variation between wild stocks an tank stocks (obesity, diffrence in fins development in dimidiata group…..).
    It’s important and more complicated to use meristics counts to attempt to discriminate the species.
    It’s difficult but it’s important to try to progress in our modest knowledge of these amazing fishes.
    Probably, as I’ve already said, some species in foerschi or pugnax groups must be re-examinated, the limits between them are not very clear…. To be continued….:D

    Thank’s for pics!

    If I use the figure, the fishes look like B. foerschi and not strohi.

    For me with these pictures it appear that it is foerschi

    I’ven’t find these pics of foerschi. Anyone can give me the links?

    I send a small extract of the key for the difference between foerschi and strohi.

    I think too that this group must be re-examined in the future becaus the description of these two species not clear and not really scientific! There is a lot of confusions!!!!!!!!

    It’s so difficult to find publications of IEF because they are not free.
    For any help, there is an illustrated key of the genus Betta available in french and in english!

    See: http://www.cil-ibsc.fr/spip.php?article104

    All actually described species are included.
    It cost around 10 ‚ā¨ plus the shipping costs, send a mail to Michel dantec ([email protected])

    There is effectively any reports on some wild populations of B. splendens.
    I think it will be so difficult to find specimens in U.E.

    hello, I’m not a specialist but in France we have one key of the genus Betta ( an english version is also available in CIL-IBSC).
    With this key and with this only one picture (the doubts are on the presence or absence of iridescent opercles scales, green or blue…) I find that the fish belong in 3 groups:
    – akarensis
    – bellica
    – pugnax
    I’ve test the key for these 3 groups and it appears, for me that the fish in the picture is closely related to akarensis group (if he haven’t iridescent scales on opercles) and if he have iridescent scales on opercles he look like very similar to a B. pugnax variant.

    I’ll try to post an extract of the english version of the key for the akarensis group for you can compare your fish with the akarensis group key.

    And sorry for my bad english
