Somewhere in PJ and KL. This place look like fine and safe to everyone. But it is not. One of the member just fell without any reason. Hand was cut and bleeding non stop. The wound is around 3-4inch long. Few fellas was skidded and injured also.

2 hand full of Singapore moss aka Vesicularia dubyana.

One of the member trying to use his small net and patiently to catch the croacking gourami. This place was full with fishes and plants. But the govr blocking and reduce the water level, cleaning up most of the plants in there. I can't see the beauty of this place like last time now.

wah ! "go back" !
I want to go too :cry:

It's ironic that I never go to those places much when I'm there , but when I'm back here in winterland, i so yearn to get myself wet and dirty in the rainforest.... hai....

Amber, bring more stuff back and distribute to us . hehehe

I never go to those places either when I am back home but however Dom here is nice enough to offer and I am not going to lose this opportunity either.


Amber, bring more stuff back and distribute to us . hehehe

Kenny, I am hoping to bring back some shrimps ! :joking: :joking:

dom
29th Nov 2005, 03:33 PM
Hi Marge,
Please let me know what date you are free to go for netting. Or give me a call...coz I am on n off to oil rig to work. :embarasse

kenny
29th Nov 2005, 04:00 PM
Oh yeah, I wish i could join u too. :( but like my parents always say, Wait till I win the lottery la! hahahaa...


Kenny, I am hoping to bring back some shrimps ! :joking: :joking:
OK ! and then breed them over winter when it's cold, and i'll visit you in spring ! hehehe .... no joking ah ! I'm waiting........... :smitten:
I think customs will allow shrimps to go through, I read somewhere (it's a gov't website) that fishes are allowed, so shrimps should be alright i guess. but plants are a big NO-NO.

amber2461
30th Nov 2005, 03:02 PM

I have already wrote in to the authorities and yes, I got a green light for the incoming shrimps.

oh..ok ok. So how long you gonna stay in Malaysia this time?

Kenny, not much can get in Malaysia. I think Singapore have more variety to choose. Saw Bee, Red Nose, Zebra and Yamato. Cherry and Tiger available all the time.

kenny
1st Dec 2005, 07:31 PM

dom
2nd Dec 2005, 01:24 PM

kenny
2nd Dec 2005, 05:25 PM
Is this the shrimp (http://www.shrimpnow.com/forums/showthread.php?t=450) you are talking about ? Don't seem so friendly though.




imi sky, just pm me yr address. i will post some mosses to you once i hv time to go post office. btw, will the custom quarantine or blocking it? As i know, US is the only country which is hard to get anything in...
erm..... do i get some too ? :rolleyes:
heehehhe :D

dom
2nd Dec 2005, 05:54 PM
Yes. They are kinda aggressive. Any fishes getting close to them and will attack by them. It is not advisable to keep with small fish like tetra, rasbora and smaller size of shrimp.

You can have a tank special make for them. Fast and cold water flow is a must. River sand as gravel and some rocks with floating plants/leaves.
