From the Betta Splendens Complex.

PLEASE NOTE FISH WILL BEGIN SHIPPED ON THE 9/15 (FOR NEXT DAY AIR) and 9/19/22 (2 + days)

The rarest of all the splendens complex found only in the Mekong River basin in Cambodia from the locality of Stung Streng. This species was thought to be once extinct but a recent reemergence by a handful of breeders was made. Physically they are very similar to Smaragdinas, however, they have a much smaller stouter body as well as fins. The scaling is also different in that they tend to have less spread iridescence on the body but more prominent scaling on the face.

These are kept in our hygenic temperature control drip system.  All males come from the same lineage and are generally similar.

NOTE: for ebay buyers, yes you can combine fish for shipping and other shipping options are available. Please PM us for more information
