Hi,

I got this fish today, The guy sold it to me saying its "imported molly" ( which definitely it is NOT).

I feel its some kind of BETTA. What is this fish. It was attacking and trying to eat the small fish.

Here are the photos.

Lovely aplocheilus sp. Be careful they're jumpers and will prey on small fish and shrimps
