    as I got some “new” species from Borneo I took some pics and found these in my stock to start with
    Hemirhamphodon tengah a real beauty from the trade







    Pascal brought some “new” ones from Borneo he had collected last week together with Michael Lo near Kutching/Sibu, Sarawak
    Betta brownorum in the photo-tank. a female? 3 cm length

    colours are showing up in a 50x20x30 tank





    Kottelatlimia pristes, 3.8 cm length





    Kottalatlimia katik is really small – 1.5 cm – compared with the companions





    a great day when I got them c=”style_emoticons/< #EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:rolleyes:” border=”0″ alt=”rolleyes.gif” />

    What a wonderful collection of fish!! All pictured brownorum look male to me? Envy you greatly; that species and I haven’t yet had the pleasure of crossing paths

    no, Jim. conditions were to difficult for a transport. But they have found at least one undescribed species. pics may follow.

    an update
    k. katik are practically invisible. k. pristes is very activ and changing from the left part of the tank to the right, over a glas longside the tank. a vry curious chap.

    some close-ups. nasal barbles are not so long as in k. katik.



    and of course b. brownorrum.
    definitively one pair in the rigt tank. they do the tank-changing play as well. the living black mosquito-larvae seem to work. it’s difficult to take pics in that corner, it’s dark and the can is moving sligthly. and the snails were there within minutes. I seperated the eggs, fertilized or not … no fry up till now.
    as pics are rare …

    Very nice pics! I was just about to say that you can leave Betta eggs in with snails until I scrolled down and saw the type and size of those snails – and refrained from saying what I had planned. If you have the oppertunity, put a pair in a spawning tank to have a bigger chance of success. Hatching eggs artificially can be challanging. Good luck and I hope it works out
