I'm back for a short visit in my second home. Hoping to do some fishing though plans with Thai friends are not materializing due to some scheduling problems. I plan to rent a car and go off & see what I can find?
Took a few quick pics at Cahtuchak mkt. yesterday. There's always interesting stuff there! Rather than post all the pics here I'll try to just link my photobucket album.

Going to hit the Eastern Seaboard Matt ( Rayong/Chantaburi/Trat provinces), same areas as before. I have places in mind, I just have to find them! Bought maps today. Biggest challenge will be navigating my way out of bangkok. Never driven around the city, it's chaos!

That would be fun Matt! Come on!!
I didn't mean to discourage any info you might have. If there's anything relevant to the area I'd be interested for sure.

Thanks also for the comments all!

Hmmm maybe in a year or two we could meet for a mission Jim! Got a promise to visit a friend in Peninsular Malaysia so could combine the two...

Will see what I have for the provinces you mention. Any particular target species?

Thanks Andy. The shop guy told me they were Japanese and actually showed me a profile in a book, not in english. Not a scientific name that i can remember and didn't write it down. I only had my point&shoot camera and they were quick! And beatuiful!

Odyssey......HELP!

Hi Jim , thanks for the reply !

I have a little handbook on Japanese freshwater fish , and the nearest contenders would be Sarcocheilichthys possibly biwanensis ? or possibly a type of Hemibarbus ? the book is in Japanese /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" /> there are similar lookers but not same ?

Again thanks , enjoy your trip /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" />

You're on to something there Andy. Notice the other fish upper right in my pic and the fish lower left in the linked pic, they look the same.
I think maybe all or most of the fish in this tank belong together?

Have fun, Jim!

The first picture in your PB album looks like Sicyopus zosterophorum.

Been there. Mind blowing. If anyone ever takes a holiday to Thailand I'd very seriously recommend you go and take a look at the 'weekend market' just outside Bangkok. The animal / fish market is something else.

Glad you're having a good time Plaamoo. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

While driving yesterday, going over some small mts., i spotted this trickle in a gully. Had to have a quick look. Thw wife was waiting in the car it was quick. The stream had been dammed for irrigation, and there was but a trickle & a few small pools. Teaming with these little rsboras. i found out that the net I bought was not small enough mesh, so i just dipped the container in the water and came out with quite a few. I'll need to get a glass photo container also as this plastic one is not great. I also noticed a few bigger fish dashing for cover so I dipped a net full of leaves from along the shore and came up with this channa. I was about to put it in the container for more pics and it escaped! This morn we're off to the waterfall to test my new underwater gear.

Not rasboras Jim, looks like Danio albolineatus.

The Channa should be C. gachua of which the Thai populations are sometimes referred to as C. limbata depending on who you follow.

Great start, can't wait for the underwater action!
