Caught this lovley specimen of three spot gourami in a dirty little stream just outside of our hotel in Bang Tao. Had no idea they could be this beautiful! It went back in the water since I didn’t think it would fit my tank, but looking at it now I wish I had brought a few of them back.

#TB to last Wednesday. Packing up the fish for the trip home. This is the seventh time I bring home fish from Thailand, and I’m starting to get a routine that’s working (and my wife has given up on thinking I’m disgusting). Feel free to contact me if you are planning on catching fish to bring home by air and feel you need some advice (regarding the fish – not your spouse).

Back from this summers trip to Thailand. Brought back a bunch of Danios and Rasboras, as well as a huge chunk of  some kind of plant that grows in large volumes in the side of the streams in Phuket. First I thought it was common waterweed, but Googeling it I found out there are a number of similar spices. It added a nice greenery to the tank, so I hope it can get by with the amount of light I provide. The fish handled the trip, as well as the adaptation to it’s new habitat very well.
