    Usually can be found in the small tanks behind the cash counter.

    There weren't many left when I scoped a few out about 2 weeks ago.... They were at the tanks below the shrimps

    Ah, I was looking at the right part of the shop but didn't see them, I guess there weren't any left. Oh well, I'll try my luck next time.

    They are too big to be Imbellis. I got a few of them and believe they are Betta Mahachainesis. Nice mix of males and females=)

    Bought a pair and found them to be prolific breeders in my 1.5 feet tank. Have some fries in the tank with parents but will have to separate them soon since the male are getting more aggressive with the older ones.

    Unlike my imbellis pair who can tolerate fries in good harmony.

    Take a photo of the fish in question then you can tell whether it's mahachai or something else from the splendens-group.

    Re: Wild Betta @ Y618

    Fishes mentioned from Y618, are mahachai, not imbellis or splendens. They are very likely to be wild stock. If you're sharp enough, you would find a few contaminants, in the form of Parosphromenus sp. As to which species they are, I'm not very sure.

    Any idea if they are still available at 328 or 618? Thanks!

    Nice! Thanks! How much are they anyway? Thinking of replacing my HMPK with the wild ones

    Re: Wild Betta @ Y618

    Just saw some "wild green betta" at Y618. Another batch of Betta mahachaiensis?

    Re: Wild Betta @ Y618

    Those are definitely Betta mahachaiensis, albeit wild caught ones. Did you get any for yourself?

    BTW, is there any Betta brownorum? They are labelled as rutilans.

    Shi Xuan: Nah, I don't have the space and resources for a dedicated setup. I'm still holding out for a pugnax or two to add to my community tank.

    Those mahachai tank seems like always have some, when I recce the place very other week. The pair I have spawned a few times, left the F1 with the parents.

    As for bronorum/rutilans, no sight of new batch. Got 3 of them the last time.

    Y618 seems to have good supply of wild, all my other wilds - imbelis and mandor also from there.

    Re: Wild Betta @ Y618

    Yes, Y618 has been consistent with wild betta. One month back or so, they even have Sphaerichthys vaillanti aka Samurai Gourami. I believe they were wild caught, along with the brownorums, which were labelled as rutilans.

    The only thing that dissuaded me from getting the samurais was their fragility and requirement of a larger tank. Even the mahachaiensis tank have a few contaminants, in the form of Paros, if you were sharp enough. Only thing is, I have no clue of the species, because there isn't any paros that inhabit the same habitat as mahachaiensis.

    Re: Wild Betta @ Y618

    Hmm.. seems like I should pay more attention to Y618 and not just C328. Their supply of anabantoids other than fancy Bettas is not regular. Shi Xuan, I'll need you to update me for this, if you have time.

    Re: Wild Betta @ Y618

    Not too sure if you have any specific anabantoids for me to look out for... I might be going down any day to see if there's any new stock. Been to C328, nothing much there. Seen samurais and imbellis but that was a few months back.

    I'm waiting for more brownorum. Trying to buy and raise enough fishes for me to sort out a decent pair.
