I know i have mentioned it around the forum a few times but this has to be my biggest peeve. We keep calling this "Betta splendens" as they are scientifically named. A true wild betta splendens, part of the Splendens complex In fact the first fish is not a true splendens at all. It is a mix of the entire splendens complex Honestly, there has to be a better way to display the name of Domestic Betta Splendens. I mean, technically since it is a splendens hybrid of the entire complex the term "Betta Splendens" makes some sense, but the name indicates that it is one species, not a hybrid of 4. A lot of misinformation gets passed off because of this confusion because Wild splendens are rather peaceful where as the domesticated is highly unusually aggressive for its complex. Ok, rant over.
