Krabi Mouth Brooding Betta
This species is regularly bred in captivity by aquarists. Research and monitoring of populations in its habitat is needed to develop a management plan.
This species is endemic to Krabi Province, peninsular Thailand, where it occurs in small areas of karst spring and wetlands near Khao Thong village. It has only been recorded from one location.
The species is locally uncommon throughout its known range.
Overfishing for bait fish may threaten this species. Also habitat degradation of karst wetlands from agrochemical contamination as well as conversion for farmlands significantly threaten this species.
