 @  Dinesh,  I  picked  two  of  the  smaller  shrimps.  They  were  egg  laden.  Hope  they  proliferate.  They  are  yours.

 Nayak,  you  liar,  you  had  a  better  time  catchng  those  exotic  fish  for  three  days,  I  am  sure.  If  it  wasnt  for  my  wedding  anniversary  on  30th,  I  would  have  made  sure  to  have  caught  a  few  exotic  species  as  well.  But  for  a  newbie,  I  got  to  see  the  habitat  of  the  dwarf  puffer  for  the  first  time  and  did  catch  loads  of  them.  There  must  be  about  25  of  them  in  Suraj's  tank.  How  much  did  Hayath  take?
 
 Hayath,  buddy,  you  are  back.  So  we  want  the  photos  now.

 Puntius  chola?

 Salmostoma  boopis  is  what  it  looks  like.
 
 Sorry  guys,  hate  to  disappoint  you.  Still  not  up  there  when  it  comes  to  natives  but  in  a  year's  time,  I  should  be  reeling  them  out  for  you.

 Could  be.  Honestly,  don't  remember  as  I  was  only  quickly  glancing  through  Madhu's  book,  a  couple  of  days  back.  Haven't  seen  P.  chola  either,  till  date.

 Shreyas,
 
 I  do  not  lie!  I  definitely  did  have  fun  as  is  wont  and  I  will  definitely  have  fun  if  I  had  gone  the  whole  length  my  own  self  Thumb Up  
 
 But  the  challenge  is  going  with  team  mates  and  sharing  the  difficulties  as  well  as  the  success  and  failures  which  we  did  in  this  E.canarensis  trip.  Any  field  trip  is  always  an  enjoyable,fantastic  and  enriching  experience,  That  too  with  the  walking  encyclopedias  as  Trevor  said.
 
 But  still  I  would  like  to  see  Chalakkudy  once  in  my  life  with  all  of  you.  Smile  
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 Always  welcome,  Nayak.  Doors  open  to  all  hobbyists  at  all  times.
 
 I  sure  missed  the  next  trip  with  all  our  experts  on  board  there.  Would  have  had  some  real  good  lessons.

 The  fish  in  the  first  page  (above  Aplochelius  lineatus)  could  be  Rasbora  Trilineata(ScissorTail)  or  Devario  aequipinnatus(Giant  Danio)???

 This  was  a  lovely  trip  with  some  nice  company  Smile  
 
 The  report  is  finally  done  and  can  be  read  here  -  http://iridealone.blogspot.com/2009/05/trip-to-coimbatore-and-chalakudy.html
 
 For  those  who  prefer  pictures  alone  to  do  the  talking  -  
 http://picasaweb.google.com/hayath.m/ChalakudyCoimbatoreAquaristMeet
 
 Some  pics  from  the  trip
 
 The  gang  on  the  trip-
 
 From  L-R
 Vignesh(bmvbab)  with  Varun  (Suraj  Junior)
 Ravi  (sgravi2k)  
 Deepak  (raindeepak4u)
 Mrs.  and  Mr.Suraj
 Niranjan
 Pandian
 Shreyas  
 Gokul
 with  yours  truly  behind  the  camera  Very Happy  
 
 The  Athirapally  falls,  all  of  our  collection  was  downstream  from  here
 
 
 The  place  we  stopped  for  breakfast
 
 
 The  bridge  where  we  spotted  loads  of  E.  maculatus  and  netted  some  dwarf  puffers
 
 
 
 
 A  few  plants  for  ID  -
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Fish  we  caught  -
 P.  filamentosus  complex  juvenile
 
 
 M  .armatus  ?
 
 
 X.  cancila
 
 
 A.  lineatus
 
 
 H.  fossilis
 
 
 P.  marginata
 
 
 C.  travancoricus
 
 
 And  then  the  mystery  Channa  someone  had  netted  from  a  clump  of  weeds.  It  looked  definitely  like  the  Channa  gachua,  but  also  had  the  "spots"  very  characteristic  of  the  Channa  from  the  Himalayan  plains.  Would  love  to  get  a  positive  ID  on  this.  The  rounded  face  of  a  Channa  gachua,  spots  of  maybe  a  Channa  stewartii,  patterns  of  a  Channa  punctata...all  in  one  fish!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Further  detailed  reads  in  the  blog  post  above  Thumb Up   
 
 Cheers,

 Just  went  through  the  blog.  Guys,  now  you  know  why  I  let  Hayath  do  the  talking!   Chuckle  
 Well  described.   Clapping  
 
 I  didn't  know  Shreyas  was  that  close,  was  pretty  dark  and  I  was  too  busy  avoiding  the  lorry.  But  one  thing  though,  the  early  morning  drive  saved  us  a  lot  of  traffic  blues.  People  heading  towards  Kerala,  be  warned.  Traffic  on  this  road  will  be  maddening,  always.

 The  official  photographer  did  a  great  job  :)
 
 PS:  He  still  holds  a  grudge  against  me  for  loosing  the  only  live  4"  Chana  that  I  caught   Crying or Very sad
