IUCN Red List: Vulnerable (Threatened and facing a high risk of extinction in the wild)

Wild Caught Betta Dennisyongi

A red-brown base body with black markings on head and body for both males and females. Fully grown adult males have longer anal fins and caudal fins when compare to females, both species becomes bright red with blue iridescent on the edge of fins . Unlike many of the species in the genus betta, females can be as brightly colored as the male. Males can be told apart from females by the more intense coloration on the fins and body, often with more iridescent while females have egg-spots when ready to breed. Dennisyongi are differentiated from betta rubras by the different black facial marking as well as less intense black bars on its body. Both species are very close genetically and are only truly differentiated by location.

Betta dennisyongi and betta rubra are some of the easiest wild bettas to start out on as they have lower level of aggression between males and can do well in community tanks.
