    It’s a wild type betta splendens. The fish shops always labeled it incorrectly as “imbellis”, probably fault from the supplier

    The body does seem to be slenderer but could be an optical illusion due to the dorsal fin not fully extended. The 2 red vertical opercle bars are indicative of the splendens genes.

    How about the bluish sheen on the operculum?
    Thats what makes it seem like a hybrid to me

    Could be but really couldn’t tell for sure unless one performs a DNA sequencing. Overall the splendens traits are more dominant by visual. So what hybrid are you suspecting here?
