Thanks to Mah’s recommendation, I stumbled a video on Nikon AW100 with a flyfisherman doing the review. I seriously need to give up my Canon D10 for this Nikon AW100!

It is distinguishable from other species of the genus in having a red dorsal fin with a black blotch at the tip, red pectoral, pelvic and anal fins, red caudal fin with white margin and a black submarginal stripe along each lobe, and 8 scale rows between dorsal-fin origin and lateral line.

Large individuals are silvery or golden yellow while alive with its dorsal fin red and caudal fin orange or blood-red. It grows up to 14 inches (35 cm) in length. Tinfoil Barbs have a lifespan of 8 to 10 years.

It is largely herbivorous, consuming aquatic macrophytes and submerged land plants, as well as filamentous algae and occasionally insects. It also feeds on small fishes, worms, and crustaceans.

I have been too preoccupied with work, wedding preparations and new home shifting. Finally I have some time to consolidate the pictures for the past trips.

Let the many action pictures do the talking instead.

Upon arrival in a nice mini van

Good to see our old friend Badboy again!

Die die must try fish soup porridge!

Food & fishing is extremely good and value for money at Pilot 111.
