    Did they go to Marudi for the macs???If they are looking for it in Sibu …i think they went to the wrong place

    hi Haji, they went to the places that other collectors had said had caught them, that failed.
    so they asked the local people and again he couldn’t find any, so as a last resort he asked for permission of the people in Brunei but was refused, so that was the end but he really enjoyed his trip and the people he met.

    Hi Mick,

    Wild macrostoma can only be found in Marudi,Malaysia side and Brunei.There has been unconfirmed reports of collection from the Niah side,Malaysia.Brunei has banned collection and export of their wild macs.I however disagree with some that says that you get the death penalty if proven guilty for this offence.The sultan is quiet civilized and not that extreme!!! /dry.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”<_ <" border="0" alt="dry.gif">

    But knowing Mr and Mrs Brown,these are good people who are highly respected in the wild betta scene /happy.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”^_^” border=”0″ alt=”happy.gif” />

    Thanks.

    will do Haji.
    i knew he had got his name to the brownorum bud, he tells us every time he does a talk at the fish clubs i go to, his last talk at my local club was on the liquorice fish that your not keen on.
    he had some fantastic pics of loads of different species, thats when he brought my brownorums as i asked him to bring me a couple of pairs.

    btw, his wifes the boss. /laugh.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:lol:” border=”0″ alt=”laugh.gif” />

    Mick,

    As i said in the other forum,the biotope of the brownorum is being destroyed here as well.First there was overfishing …now the place is being developed for some project. /biggrin.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:D” border=”0″ alt=”biggrin.gif” /> )I ve also collected some sundadanio axelrodi (both blue/greenish and red variants) from the place.Very beautiful fish mate. /cool.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”B)” border=”0″ alt=”cool.gif” /> I am setting up another tank next week just for these sundadanios.
