Sanggau, Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo (page 2)

Here are the other Pangios captured from the same biotope. Pangio anguillaris is a slender very eel-like species.

Pangio shelfordii is widely distributed species that has variable color pattern. Specimens from Sarawak have more finely dotted sides. Young specimens here were finely peppered from the dorsal side with the dots fusing to a black stripe on the side. This adult is having row of sadles on the sides and one row on top of the back.


This Cryptocoryne was common on the muddy banks of small streams. 


Habitat of Eirmotus octozona.

Other fishes caught in these small streams were Eirmotus octozona, Systomus anchisporus, Systomus hexazona and Brachygobius xanthomelas.

On the picture on the right there is a baby Systomus hexazona resting on my finger. This was in May and the breeding season was not far behind I guess. Young Systomus johorensis are very similar with this S. hexazona when they are small. Later they develop completely different pattern with longitudinal stripes.
