These beautiful species of wild Betta have been described scientifically recently. We have both species in stock. Our tentative designations for the fish were Betta sp. Mahachai for B. mahachaiensis and Betta cf. imbellis Black Vietnam for Betta siamorientalis so far.
Both species are very nice, comparably peaceful fighting fishes. Keeping and breeding is similar to that of the well known Betta imbellis. However, Betta mahachaiensis prefers slightly brackish water and Betta siamorientalis is most beautiful in soft and acidic water.
For our customers: Betta mahachaiensis has code 377103, Betta siamorientalis code 382023 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
