Fixed your title and moved the thread to a more appropriate forum, where hopefully you will get more help. Good luck with your I.D.

Looks like Trichopsis pumila. Or a sparkling gourami.

Perfect that is what they are.... Now are they the ones nibbling on Molly tail and fins? I have other fish but never has any issues till added these. I have African dwarf frogs, mollies, Betta fighter, albino cat fish and neons plus the breed you named. I need to figure it out as lost my best Molly and its upsetting as it just happened all of a sudden in a day!

Can you post a pic?

Males have long flowing fins for the most part. A pic can definitely help. Im not a betta expert

Hope this helps. I was told he was good as long as only Betta but its friendly. I thought I was being good as I checked obviously lied to for the sale.

That is a male betta. I wouldn't put a male betta in a community of fish

I just seen it swipe at my other little female molly all she did was swim past him. Can I pop him in a box I have when my mollies have fry? Just a box that you keep fry in till big enough to sell or swim freely so they don't get eaten just till I figure out how to keep him? And maybe buy his own little tank.

I too have a male betta, and put him in my 20g tank with a group of guppies and neon tetras. My betta seems to get along with them, but I think it is because he is so old. He doesn't care for them, or my catfish and shrimps. He likes to stare at them =)

But I also keep a 1g bowl for my female betta, she is super aggressive.

I think your betta would be happier in a bowl of his own. =) Good idea!
