 Fourth  Spot  -  Jayaseelan's  farm
 
 We  then  headed  to  Jayaseelan's  farm  in  Pondy.  Few  pics  from  his  farm.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 We  saw  this  snake  in  his  farm.  To  my  surprise  I  found  many  of  our  members  too  interested  in  snakes.

 Fifth  spot  -  Villiyanur  river
 
 The  water  was  slightly  brackish.  Aswin  have  posted  above  pics  of  this  beautiful  location.  Some  of  the  fishes  caught  on  this  location.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 The  time  was  now  around  3:00  PM  and  we  were  all  dead  tired.  We  packed  of  the  fishes  and  then  headed  to  Velu  military  hotel  and  ravished  on  Biriyani.  
 
 
 I  took  7  puntius  sp,  Abishek  took  4  of  these,  Ashwin  took  10  killies  and  Raghu  few  shrimps.  
 
 Thanks  to  Ashwin  for  driving  safely.  A  special  thanks  to  Thomas  and  Jayaseelan.  And  thanks  to  all  folks  who  joined  on  this  trip.
 
 Regards
 Prasoon

 All  snaps  credit  to  Raghu  and  Ashwin.
 
 Beta/Balaji:  Unfortunately  both  our  guys  have  not  posted  pics  of  this  elusive  puntius.   Sad  
 The  ones  in  my  tank  are  doing  fine.  My  cam  is  expected  back  sometime  tomorrow  or  the  day  after.  Let  me  check  with  Abhishek  if  he  could  post  some  pics  of  the  puntius.
 
 Regards
 Prasoom

A  brief  description  on  the  trip  -   Kindly  excuse  us  for  the  delay.
 
 Raghu  seems  very  good  with  his  Nikon
                 

 
 Correction  Prasoon  it  wasn’t  Nikon  "I  hate  Nikon"  Its  Canon.

Shovelnose  wrote  (View  Post):                
And  another  fish  that  we  spotted  in  brackish  water.  Reminded  me  of  a  Lutjanus  Sp.  juvenile.                

 
 Well,  strongly  resembles  L.  argentimaculata.  But,  I  feel  that  isn't  a  Snapper  for  a  couple  of  reasons.  Remember  the  V  stripes  on  the  body,  as  on  C.  aurantimaculata  and  E.  canarensis?  Secondly,  Snappers  are  shoaling  fish  and  would  remain  isolated  only  if  any  illness  makes  it  difficult  to  cope  up  with  the  group.  Also,  the  fish  was  probably  guarding  a  nest,  as  it  was  reluctant  to  swim  away  from  the  site  and  swimming  back  often  inspite  of  the  presence  of  all  of  us  just  a  few  feet  away.  I  don't  think  any  Snapper  does  that.
 
 The  one  I  had  kept  before  ceased  to  grow  above  3  inches  for  more  than  a  year.  They  are  very  aggressive  and  good  scale  rippers  too.

 Not  that  Im  saying  Fishbase  is  always  right  but  it  states  that  juveniles  of  the  L.argentimaculatus  are  often  found  in  estuaries  and  lower  reaches  of  fresh  water  streams.

 We  get  both  Therapon  jarbua  and  Lutjanus  argentimaculatus  far  upriver  here,  living  in  water  that  is  potable.  They're  not  necessarily  shoaling.  I  see  them  singly,  in  twos  and  threes  and  in  groups  of  10+.

 Also  there  is  a  picture  in  the  Western  Ghat's  book  of  a  juvenile  (???)  L.argentimaculatus  that  looks  extremely  similar  to  what  we  spotted.  Then  again,  I  think  we  we  spotted  it  from  too  far  off  to  arrive  at  any  confirmed  ID.

 Are  we  still  hanging  over  argentimaculata  or  moving  on  to  the  strange  Puntius?   Innocent

 Only  after  Prasoon  posts  pics.  Till  then  I  suggest  we  stick  to  victimising  the  Snapper.

 Guys,
 Thank  you  all  for  taking  me  along.  This  is  my  first  trip  and  I  enjoyed  it  very  much,  though  I  did  not  do  much  (Learning  curve   Very Happy  )
 
 I  found  this  map  of  Kaluveli,  did  we  stop  too  early,  I  think  we  missed  the  main  part  of  the  tank  according  to  this  map.
 
 http://www.pitchandikulamforest.org/cms/images/stories/kaluvelimap.jpg
 
 I  guess  we  have  not  heard  the  last  of  this  place.  I  guess  we  need  to  do  a  recee  of  this  place  again  sometime  later.
