Betta Midas - A Gold Colored Fighter

A couple months ago I came across a bunch of wild Bettas from one of my trips into Indonesia. They are from the Anabantoide Group but I could see there was two types of fishes collected from the same area. After due quarantine and the fishes settling down in their new home, their yellow golden colors began to peak distinctly. This fish was described by Tan Heok Hui (Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, NUS, Singapore) in 2009.
