 Hi  Guys,  
 
 Wanted  to  share  a  tank  of  mine  which  is  based  on  Tunga  river  in  Karnataka  
 
 The  tank:
 
 
 
 Inhabitants:
 
 6  Arulius  Barbs:
 
 
 
 6  Rohtee  Ogilbyii  (which  i  will  give  away):
 
 
 
 6  Melon  Barbs:
 
 
 
 
 
 1  Garra  Bicornuta/Tunga  Garra:
 
 
 
 2  Mystus  Canarensis  Catfish:
 
 
 
 3  Triangularis  loach:
 
 
 
 Tank  is  3'L  x  2'  B  x  18"  H,  Water  Change  twice  a  week-  30%,  Feed  them  with  Bottom  feeder  pellets  from  Aquatic  remedies  and  Hikari  ALgae  Wafers.  THey  all  fight  and  chase  around  while  eating  like  they  do  in  the  wild  (all  are  wild  caught  after  all).  All  the  pebbles,  rocks  and  twigs  are  collected  from  nearby  rivers
 
 Will  update  with  more  bigger  stones  and  once  I  give  away  the  rohtee  ogilbyi,  will  add  few  more  botia  striata.  Need  to  add  a  black  BG  as  well.  
 
 Hope  you  all  like  it.  
 
 Cheers,  
 
 Karthik

 Thanks  Nidhi  sir.  My  good  friends  shared  it  with  me  when  they  went  for  a  trip  there  Smile  Supposedly,  the  ogilbyii  is  going  to  grow  to  about  10",  as  per  what  I  heard.  So  I  don't  want  it  to  suffer  in  this  3'  tank.  I  will  probably  house  it  in  my  aunt's  pond,  which  is  much  bigger  and  better  for  it.  
 
 Cheers,
 
 Karthik

 Ya  Karthik..  those  will  grow  large  for  sure.  Pond  is  definitely  the  right  place  for  them.
 But  still  they  look  really  cute..

 Nice  to  see  a  native  biotope  after  a  long  time.   Smile  The  Mystus  and  the  Mesonemacheilus  will  do  better  with  food  like  Tetra  Bits  or  Hikari  Carnivore  Pellets.

 Thanks  Balaji.  I  always  felt  our  Native  fish  are  underrated.  I  keep  many  of  them:  Channa  Green  fantasy  (from  Meghalaya),  Asian  Stone  cats,  Channa  Andrao,  Yoyo  Loaches  and  the  ones  mentioned  above  in  my  post.  Yes,  i  feed  them  shrimps  and  tetra  bits  now  and  then.  
 
 Cheers,

 Beautiful  setup!  Very  raw,  natural  and  lively.
 
 Did  you  consider  putting  up  a  vinyl  background  on  this?

 Thanks  Hamza  bhai..  No  not  yet  an  expert  with  backgrounds.  I  will  learn  about  them  in  the  coming  days.  But,  yes,  a  rock-like  background  would  look  really  nice.  Smile
