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.

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