From the Betta Albimarginata Complex.

IUCN Red List: Endangered (Very high risk of becoming extinct in the wild)

Wild caught Betta Channoides from Samarinda.

The Channoides have a more robust body than the Albimarginata and is more red, whereas the Albimarginata can be more of a burgundy to orange color. The easiest way to differentiate them is that the dorsal fin on the Channoides is all red with no black.
