    Yeah, the place has tons of potential (there are very few good shops in the entire country) and the place is totally run down despite being open for only two years. For the first couple of weeks I’ve been concentrating on labeling the fish correctly and sorting out the stock which was all mixed up. Now to work out what to do with all the plecos, oscars, pacu etc. that they’ve accumulated – there are loads of them!!!

    Hi Kel and welcome to the forum! Is there anything that particularly appeals? Many species from Central American species or Australasia might fit the bill…

    There is evidence to suggest that to be the case, but nothing concrete as far as I know?

    Thanks Jim, one of my main regrets from the trip is failing to snorkel much – too much time was required to make pics of all the species we caught.

    Next we visited another tributary within the Sungai Terengganu basin. It started to rain quite heavily as soon as we arrived, so we only made photos of the species we hadn’t yet collected, but this place was full of fishes.

    The type localities of Betta stigmosa and Homaloptera parclitella were close by so we decided to take a look, although we had no permission to collect in this protected area. No fish seen due to torrential rain.

    Type locality of Betta stigmosa:

    Sungai Berang, yet another tributary in the Sungai Terengganu basin, after the storm. No fishing done here as it was already time to head back to our lodgings for the night.

    Ok. Kiss Next stop was a small affluent of the Sungai Pur, a tributary within the Terengganu River system and home to a nice diversity of species including a fair amount of loach filth.

    Cheers guys! Olly, no crocs seen thankfully, only a couple of harmless water snakes. 🙂

    Time to add some more pics here. Wink

    The next morning we fished the lower reaches of a small, coastal black water river. Our colleagues only informed us of the crocodile risk here post-sampling!!!
