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).

Malayan Pygmy Halfbeak (Dermogenys collettei)
Kranji Marshes, 29th June 2017

Many older resources consider various Halfbeak populations across Southeast Asia to be a single species, the Wrestling Halfbeak (Dermogenys pusilla). However, this species is now thought to be endemic to Java, while the populations found in Singapore belong to a separate species, the Malayan Pygmy Halfbeak.
