    Hi all, I just came back to Kuching from a fishing trip in Johor & Pahang. I think its a fruitful trip.....but I can't bring back all the fish. I only brought back Betta tussyae, Betta pugnax, Betta imbellis & Betta bellica. Unfortunately, all my Betta bellica are found dead just now.....the rest are survived.

    Many thanks to Herman, Marcus & Azmi for showing me around. Even though I failed to find Betta tomi & all the Paros. from Johor, I have seen so many beautiful fishes & aquatic plants that I can't find in Sarawak. Johor is really an amazing place! Today I'm posting some pictures from the trip....more pix will be posted here either on Sunday/Monday.


    Picture below: Sunrise at Johor Strait....Good morning Johor & Singapore!!!!

    he said is regular B. ibanorum lah.
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    If yes, then Betta ibanorum coverage area is bigger than what we thought.
