    Is there an easy way to tell what kind of fighter fish you already have? I never realized how many different types there were.

    Yeah there is way to tell but you need a really good eye, most bettas nowadays are mixes but there are some differences like the slope of the head, mouth shape, body types, and the size. The fighting style is also different in different regions. I’ve been around betta since I was little thanks to my brother and friends I know quite a bit now.
