This pretty fish is the aptly named Whitespot (Aplocheilus panchax) with a white spot on the top of its head. Some of them had colourful fins.
Grey knight gobies (Stigmatogobius sadanundio). Some of them had colourful patterns on the dorsal fins!
Mangrove bumblebee gobies (Brachygobius kabiliensis).

I saw this small dragonfly too. I'm making a wild guess that it's the Mangrove Dwarf (Raphismia bispina) which according to Tang Hung Bun's amazing Guide to the Dragonflies of Singapore is one of the few dragonflies that lives and breeds in saline water in mangroves. I'm sure some kind person will correct me if I'm wrong. (Tang confirms this ID is correct, thank you!)

The mangrove stream is rather shallow and winds through some dense vegetation. The abundant life in and about the stream shows that the water quality is good.
Giant mudskippers (Periophthalmodon schlosseri).
Ipil (Intsia bijuga). Today I noticed a smaller one next to it! It seemed healthy although it's branches were quite entangled in a rattan growing nearby.
Wax plants (Hoya sp.). Today, the Critically Endangered Hoya diversifolia were in bloom!
