I recently bought my first Bettafish and want to get a second one. Since I was advised, that they are not good companions, I will put him in a second tank. Could anyone suggest me an easy robust, species from here ?
And perhaps point out some differences? They all look very nice to me.

I am not much of a Betta person, but I hated to see this go unanswered.  I only see one species for sale Betta splendins, perhaps I didn't look hard enough?

Rather than species, are you referring to different fin types and colors?

There are many species of betta. Fishbase lists 73. Some can be kept together in the same tank. My favorite was a group of B. imbettlis I kept for a number of years in a planted 10 gal. They spawned and I had offspring into another generation.

There is an International organization dedicated to Bettas, the IBC (International Betta Congress)
