Lol. Wow looks pretty cool. I find it surprising that they are a new species that seemingly can't interbreed with some other different betta species.

I did not see where it said they could not interbreed? They probably don't in the wild, but they might in captivity. A lot of species that physically CAN interbreed do not in the wild.

All animals deserve respect, not just the cute and pretty ones.
Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.

That's very true. Missed that part about them being brackish! That would definitely explain the reproductive barrier.
