Hard to find purebred mahachai and splendens nowadays. I see all these mahachai being sold as pure on AB and they don't look all that pure to me. Sad to think they were only just recognised as an official species and yet they have been allowed to heavily hybridise.

Have you considered also adding stiktos to your collection? I believe they are a recognised species of the splendens complex but seem like the others, to be very difficult to find in their pure form.

Good luck with your plans. I am trying acquire as many breeding pairs of coccina complex species as I can. It's hard as quarantine regulations are so strict here and hardly anyone bothers importing them in. They would rather just go through the wholesaler who can't guarantee pairs.

Your imbellis male is really nice (if that is him in your display picture). One of the nicest examples I have seen for a while.

Those most likely have domestic blood in them. But they are a great deal and look great.
