 Hi  Guys,
 
 Finally  found  my  way  in  Jakarta  and  ended  up  visiting  an  absolutely  fabulous  place  called  Mentang.  This  place  had  about  50-60  Â LFSs  of  all  shapes  and  sizes,  both  marine  and  freshwater.  
 
 Attached  are  the  links  to  some  pics.  Enjoy
 
 http://www.flickr.com/photos/seeker763/sets/72157604352697110/
 
 Seeker
 
 PS:  Here  is  the  address  in  case  anyone  is  in  Jakarta.  There  is  another  place  for  freshwater  alone  but  I  couldn't  get  ther.  I  think  its  called  pracharon.  But  pm  me  if  you  want  to  know  details.
 
 Jl.  Taman  Sumenep  Menteng.  Just  ask  for  the  aquarium  shops.  Aquarium  is  pretty  much  the  way  the  say  it  in  Bahasa  as  well.
 
 PPS:  The  photography  is  bad,  blame  it  on  no  time  and  the  fact  that  I  was  unwell.
 PPPS:  Pls  do  help  identify  the  stuff  I  saw.  Have  put  up  what  i  think  it  is.

 That  Albino  Senegal  looks  more  leucistic  bordering  on  Xanthic.  Very  interesting.
 And  i  love  those  sharks.  Very Happy
 
 And  the  Moray.
 And  those  Endli  Bichirs.
 And  especially  that  Snapping  turtle.  
 
 Oh,  and  that  crab.  Smile
 
 Man,  Indonesians  got  it  good.

 And  i  didn't  take  pics  of  the  plants  but  believe  me  there  were  a  lot.  Have  picked  up  a  few  for  myself  and  have  loaded  the  pics  up  on  the  same  flickr  thread.  Don't  know  their  names  but  have  seen  them  around.and  the  prices....can't  mention  them  here  but  shockingly  cheap...
 
 @retro_gk  
   Rock On  
 
 Didn't  know  that  was  a  moray  eel.  There's  a  magnificent  specimen  in  an  lfs  in  bombay  called  aquaria.  will  try  and  upload  a  snap  of  that  as  well.

 @banjohead
 yes  the  senegal  was  a  bit  yellowish  so  could  be  leucistic.
 
 @retro
 have  uploaded  another  shot  of  the  moray  but  wait  till  i  get  the  lfs  one.  It's  a  huge  one.

 The  eel  is  hard  to  ID  from  that  angle,  possibly  another  moray  or  a  garden  eel.
 
 The  yellow  striped  fish  are  golden  trevallys,  the  odd  fish  out  in  that  pic  is  a  basslet.

 Oh  sorry,  just  saw  the  new  pics.
 
 The  yellowish  spotted  one  looks  like  Echidna  nebulosa.
 
 http://www.flickr.com/photos/seeker763/2384747274/in/set-72157604352697110/
 
 The  one  in  the  link  up  top  looks  like  a  Whitemargin  Moray  -  Gymnothorax  albimarginatus.

 Hard  to  ID  from  that  pic.  Doryichthys  boaja  is  the  usual  suspect.
 
 
 The  plants  are  a  mix  of  java  fern,  bacopa,  water  sprite  and  something  else.

 Bingo!
 
 @Rahul,  that's  not  a  cleaner  wrasse  as  you  suspect.  Looking  at  the  dorsal  body  profile,  a  typical  Tilefishy.  Could  be  some  Malacanthus  sp.  Need  to  google..
 
 There  is  also  an  Emperor  Snapper  in  that  pic.
