    The link doesn't seem to be working. You may want to verify it again?

    Well done and keep up the spirit guys. As long you are home safe and sound is good.

    So planning for another trip already? I guess better plan later as the weather is damn hot, not a good time for catching.
    If I have a dollar & you have a dollar & we swap, neither is better off. BUT if I have an idea & you have an idea & we swap we are both richer

    Thanks for the report. Well written and interesting. Fish 7 resembles an Anabas sp. (Climbing perch). Fish 11 resembles a young Puntius lateristriga (T barb).

    Glad you guys enjoyed the report. Anyway the cost per betta needs to be amended as we only caught a total of about 10 - 12 bettas, so cost per betta for each person = 55/4 = S$13.75. How much does such less colourful wild betta cost currently in LFS? Probably cheaper right so the extra we paid are for the experience of catching and observing them in their natural habitats!

    Well done and presented in a lively manner. I guess in future trips you will be able to catch more fishes. Did you guys bring along a portable air pump with you?

    Hi rbt, no water air pump was brought as we mainly targeted labyrinth fish only.

    Went to Kota Tinggi again today with Zane, and we ended up cryptocoryne-less again, sigh....... The taxi driver kept telling us he knew which plants we were looking for (even after I showed him many photographs of cryptocorynes from my hand phone) and brought me to various streams to find the "plant with flower sticking out of water" but could not locate them.

    In the end he told us that the Pasar actually might sells them (he said that the flowers are used for cooking and Indian prayers). We followed him to the market to clear all doubts and found out that he was referring to some other flowers instead (with a white firm stem and pinkish flower at the top) .... Hai... a wild goose chase after all.

    Anyway, below are some photographs of our catch which included rasbora, barb, gourami, goby, betta, half-beak, freshwater shrimp, "killifish" look-alike, channa, etc:

    Price to pay for such field trips: temporary disfigurement to my beautiful hairy fair legs (even after using insect repellant!)

    the trick is... dun ask taxi driver.... but ask the kampong boys especially when u spot them near streams or 'longkang' they will for sure give you good 'tips'.

    What hiking boots do you normally prefer? I mean what brand? I have a very old pair and need to buy a new one. I see a great selection online. But I would like to read some realistic reviews to buy good quality boots that would last a few seasons. I am from Illinois, https://areaphonecodes.com/united-states/309. I believe it is possible to find good variants here without a problem.
