I believe the other picture is of Fundulopanchax gardneri.

Does anyone know if my betta would attack this?

I think both pictures are wrong. One is of the orange variation and the other is a different species most likely the gardneri as mentioned above.

both photos are incorrect as already stated. these are very friendly fish who need at least a 20g tank.

Great fish but shrimp are not safe around these guys. Learned that the hard way.

Fantastic fish! I've got a male/female pair. The male cherry barbs in the tank were attacked by the male though, so I had to remove the barbs. I guess they look too much like him. They are beautiful fish.
