    ^ I know bream from the UK and this was much broader across the 'shoulders?'...

    Maybe a carp... but the mouth was very much upturned, like a rudd in the UK.

    It also made strange squeaking noises while out of the water. I'll investigate further.

    One thing I did notice... a chunk had been taken out of it's lower tail fin. I put in four pla chon a few years ago to help control pla nin fry numbers, but they could be huge by now. I've also seen a couple of small fingerling pla chon in the margins, so they are obviously breeding. I think they could be getting out of control.

    Looks like a java barb, the same one as we identified last October in this thread (posts 104 and 105): Plaa dta-piyan. ปลาตะเพียน.

    We've been taking a lot of fish out of the pond lately so I thought it was time for a bit of restocking...

    There's a place in Korat that sells all kinds of fish. So, a couple of bags of pla nin and a couple of bags of pla tabtim. It's only really the tilapia that I eat... the wife will eat anything that swims but I have no love of eating bony carp and catfish.



    Although anything is for sale here.



    And this is why I don't pay too much attention to the interior of my car.



    Everything has to be thoroughly inspected of course. After 20 minutes or so to equalise the water temperature, in they went.

    The next time you see these fish, they'll hopefully be wrapped in batter in the 'Dinner' thread!
