    Hey All, just want to share some of my last few fishing spots in JB. Development is encroaching on the last few habitats of the fishes I used to catch... how sad. Sigh...

    Nice photos, and I wish I could go fishing in Malaysia someday. Indeed, it's a tragedy when these places vanish, both here in Singapore and abroad.
    Small is beautiful.

    Good catch you got there. Betta bellica and persephone are some of my favorite fish. persephone can be quite hard to catch these days, especially with the encroachment of palm tree plantation. I was told there's only one location that still holds these pristine jewels but navigating coordinates is always tricky. Nonetheless, I still wish you luck in finding what you are looking for.

    And please, post some photos of your trip but of course, it would be best if you could do a short write-up on your overall trip. I'm sure it would be inspiring for most people, especially me.

    Fish shown is Aplocheilus panchax. I believe there are places in Singapore where you still can find Betta pugnax.
