CLEARWATER AQUATICS

,
I would like to say thank you to Haji Pengiran Badaruddin B. Haji for allowing me to use wild betta related articles in his website. Haji Badaruddin is one of the famous guy in Malaysia because of his passion about wild betta. His website CLEARWATER AQUATICS got a tons of information about wild betta. Here a brief introduction about CLEARWATER AQUATICS.


CLEARWATER AQUATICS

COLLECTOR OF WILD CAUGHT FISHES FROM BORNEO
A programme supported by the Department Of Fisheries Malaysia.

Clearwater Aquatics is a small backyard business company set up on the 18th November,2002. Originally,we start off only to breed angelfish and discus.Located in the beautiful city of Kuching (on the island of Borneo),we initially operate with only 30 aquariums (3,000 US gal) and a concrete pond (4,000 US gal).Now our holding capacity is 15,000 US gal and our breeding includes tetras , danios , fancy guppies / platies / swordtails, rasboras , shrimps and wild caught bettas.

This puntius sps was caught by the Matang roadside.


This neogastromyzon sps gold tail was netted in Tebedu area.My son ,Aniq says the fish look like the face of an old man.Spooky eh???From what i gather,this species is only endemic to the island of Borneo,ie Sarawak and Sabah.

betta ibanorum juveniles...we have plenty of these!!!


We noticed that the Tebedu betta taeniata has the best color and character compared to the one collected in Sri Aman.We believe that just like the ocellatas collected from Tawau,the ones collected up stream with clear running water possess striking greenish color compared to the yellow ones downstream.Tebedu area has plenty of waterfalls and the water is pristine clear.

We also cater as a collection centre for ornamental fishes before they are dispatched to within the states of Malaysia or shipped overseas.We practice a high standard of care for the proper conditioning, accalamitization and quarantine of newly caught fishes,thus reducing the high mortality rate that usually occur during long periods of handling and transportation.
