    Hi Matt , to be certain isn’t easy there are three fish that look very similar and belong to the Poropuntius group , P. deuratus , P.laoensis and P. normani I guess it might be possible to norrow by location , strangely enough I’ve got four 10inch specimens of P.laoensis which I picked up from Pier aquatics a while back , they are pretty gentle considering their size a little boisterous with a loose pecking order ? but placid enough , nice fish for a largish tank

    Met with Nonn last night for a gecko hunt. He says p. normani. He asys the homaloptera is just a smithi working it’s camoflouge.
    All from the same place Matt. The same place I posted from last year, Chantaburi province. I’m headed to a few more place today that he showed me on the map. It rained yesterday so hoping the water is clear.

    There were several of these I’d never seen before. Very shy, couldn’t get a good pic.
    neolisocheilus soroides(spelling?)

    Having difficulty uploading video. here’s a short one.

    You sure about that last one Jim? Looks more like Belontia or something to me?

    This is what I have for N. soroides (Nonn’s pic):

    ooops! I got things confused! Try pteolepis fasciatus.

    Not much luck today. The Cambodian border stream was muddy again and the waterfall I visited after was heavily peat stained from yesterdays rains. No good for underwater pics. I did catch a small schistura, saw several others looked like maybe 3 different sp. but too quick & too dark to tell what they were. Caught a few eels. I might have to give the wife a breather from patiently waiting beside the stream.

    Like Matt I would have said Belontia or similar but I was more interested in the size of that catfish mouth below it

    Ahh Pristolepis of course. Kept a single P. grooti (think so) for a while and it was one of the nastiest fish I’ve ever had. Ripped the fins of my Geophagus to pieces within 24 hours but was ok when put in with medium-sized cyprinids (Barilius, Opsarius, Puntius, Garra).

    I had no idea what it was, Nonn was picking the names out of his head last night and said spelling was questionable. There were some young n. soroides in another pic & i got them confused. I guess the pristolepus are pretty good eating!

    Unfortunately Mark, i didn’t even see the catfish until I looked at the pics last night with Nonn.

    A bad day with the camera! Poor shots, the plastic photo tank isn’t working well at all and the cold weather & the outside heat cause constant condensation on it. Then while trying to shoot this schistura that I finally managed to catch, I slipped and my new sb-600 took a swim! Don’t know if it will work again?

    A larger schistura that stayed put for 2 seconds!

    The one I caught.

    This eel was longer than the photo tank and not at all happy!

    In between gecko hunts we visited a small mangrove estuary and found some interesting little fish!

    Nonn said possibly a new sp. of mugiligobius, and another goby???. He has a friend in BKK studying these so took some back with him.

    Please forgive me if I don’t reply to comments as internet access is limited while traveling!

    Nice vid Andy! Took me awhile to download, really nice collection of fishes!! I’m back in BKK and will try to get back to JJ and get the name of that fish.

    After discouraging attempts(unclear waters) at a few other locations, and a day on the beach for my honey, I went back to my favorite stream for round 2! Was a Thai holiday and 200 kids swimming in the pools above so not quite as clear. I found a few more fish. The schistura species that we saw last year( I think the same), a really cool catfish(I’ll have to show Nonn the pics for ID unless one of you know?), A garra(cambogiensis), and several of the larger catfish that showed it’s whiskers in the last trip(very shy, no pic) I’ll put a few pics here, more in the PB

I dont know what you thought , but to me it was wierd like it was based in somebodys kitchen ? and every so often another fish sp/ would swim by /wub.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:wub:” border=”0″ alt=”wub.gif” />
