Thankyou Nonn....I'm stoked! *PICS* (lots!)

Quite a while ago, Nonn Panitvong asked me for permission to translate my "Hillstream Loaches, The Specialists at Life In The Fast Lane" article into Thai for publication in "Aqua" magazine. Also to use some of my photographs.

I gladly gave him permission as I'm always eager to get this info out to different countries in their language, plus actually having the article published in a country where some of these species hail from gives me a real buzz.

Yesterday, I get a package in the mail. Nonn said he was going to send it soon, but I was REALLY suprised by what I got.

Aqua magazine is totally awesome! It knocks spots of ANY other fish-hobby mag I've seen from any country. Imagine something of the quality of an Aqualog book, but it's a magazine. VERY high quality paper, beautiful photographic reproduction....awesome! Lots of advertising of course, like any mag, but you have to pay for this sort of quality somehow. I just wish I could read it because it has some interesting articles.

Along with the magazine, Nonn gave me one of his Siamensis.org T-shirts.

Beautifully illustrated on the back with Thailand's Silurid Catfish, by Chalwut Grudpan.

The ultra-glossy front cover of the mag is impressive. I guess the background is one of Nonn's awesome habitat photos.

Nonn has intermixed his excellent photos with mine. I'm impressed! The article is 8 pages long.

The River-Tank manifold design gets another airing. Hopefully, Thai people can replicate it and keep their native fish in captivity successfully.

Hey Jim! Your international fame spreads buddy!

I can't thank Nonn enough. When I gave him permission to do the translation, I had no idea that my article would be presented in such a totally high-quality way. I am very, very impressed with the results.

Thanks Nonn :)

Martin.
