Betta Mahachai has actually been around for a long time but biologists didnt know if it was a hybrid so the betta hadnt been officially classified. Betta mahachai is in the splendens complex so it can breed with other splendens and has done so. Obtaining mahachai is quite easy if you know where to look. There are normally some for sale on Aquabid. They are threatend in the wild but most wild bettas are do to human encroachment and hybridization. Betta stikos is another splenden which is very hard to find and has even been red listed.
I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
