Daily Decay (20th April 2018): Unidentified Cichlid (F. Cichlidae) @ Kranji

This carcass is too decomposed to be conclusively identified; there are several species of Cichlids that can be found in coastal waters around Kranji, such as Tilapia (Oreochromis spp.), Green Chromide (Etroplus suratensis), and Mayan Cichlid (Mayaheros urophthalmus). It’s also possible that the carcass may have been flushed out from the nearby Kranji Reservoir, which harbours other Cichlid species that are found in freshwater, such as Eartheater (Geophagus altifrons).
