Aaargh I'll have to dig out my papers over the weekend and work out how B. kuehnei differs from B. lehi, etc. now. Great photos Harn! /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Thanks Matt and Colin!

Haha.. same here too, Colin. Anyway Matt, i was told the clear difference between kuehnei and pugnax only, which is the blue mask on the face/cheek. Others.. im not too sure. Good luck researching XD

Great shots! Nice fish!! I'm really starting to like wild bettas. How far north do these range in Thailand?

Thanks harnsheng. I lived in Nakhon sri Thammarat for awhile but unfortunately, wasn't keeping fish at the time. I often wonder what I missed in all those lovely little streams & waterfalls!
