 Hi  all,  
 
 on  the  extended  weekend,  i  managed  to  get  one  hour  per  day  to  invest  into  some  fish  catching.  Even  though  the  season  is  not  the  best,  I  managed  to  get  a  good  number  of  species,  pictures  of  which  i  will  post  in  the  next  few  days  for  identification.  
 
 Shravanbelagola:  large  pond:  managed  to  get  a  strange  species  of  pencil  fish  (?),  but  the  black  line  is  blue  in  the  specimen  that  i  caught.  Now  however,  they  are  very  much  stressed  out,  so  they  are  quite  pale,  I  also  got  a  very  nice  variant  of  Channa  gachua  there,  sadly  only  one  specimen.  
 
 Srirangapatnam:  Managed  to  find  a  small  stream,  caught  freshwater  crabs  there,  two  types  of  shrimps  (one  very  beautiful,  black  body  and  yellow  stripe  on  the  back),  Danio  malabaricus,  Barbus  (?)  bipunctatus,  gambusia  affinis,  some  tiny  barb  species,  spiny  eels,  Rosy  barbs,  Aplochilus  ssp.  and  some  more  which  i  have  to  review  yet.  I  also  found  a  nice  plant,  which  I  have  not  seen  before  but  I  think  it  is  a  common  species.  
 
 As  i  said  pictures  will  be  up  soon,  hopefully.  
 
 Looking  forward  for  your  comments.  
 
 Regards

 The  shrimp  could  be  wood  shrimp,  the  killies  can  be  either  Panchax  or  lineatus.  we  have  found  both  of  them  inhabiting  the  same  place.

 Hi,  
 
 still  did  not  get  the  chance  to  take  any  proper  pics.  These  are  two  taken  in  Brindavan  gardens.  I  am  not  sure  what  Channa  species  it  is,  but  if  I  had  to  make  a  guess  it  would  be  marulius.  
 
 First  picture  shows  a  single  specimen,  the  second  shows  a  pair.  They  were  about  10  inches  in  size.  Sadly  I  could  not  net  them,  as  they  were  to  far  away  :-)
 
 I  will  keep  posting  more  pictures  in  the  days  to  come,  when  I  find  time  to  take  soem  pictures...
 
 Regards

 Looking  forward  to  more  pics  Ben.
 
 As  far  as  Marulius  are  concerned,  I  somehow  have  "always"  found  them  around  Dams.
 The  locality  you  clicked  these  makes  me  tend  towards  believing  so.  Earlier  sightings/catches  have  been  at  Karwar  and  Mysore  in  the  backwaters/near  the  dam.
 
 Cheers,

 Hayath,
 
 I  have  seen  a  large  pair  in  February  in  the  Cauvery  near  to  Gaganchuki  or  Baranachukki.  Spotted  them  from  a  bridge.  I  think  they  like  the  stagnant  parts  of  rivers,  so  naturally  they  would  be  common  around  dams.  
 
 I  hope  I  can  catch  one  in  the  future,  even  though  these  guys  outgrow  most  aquariums  very  fast  :-)
 
 Regards

 I  am  thinking  of  giving  mine  away,  I  have  a  pair  from  the  ones  I  caught  on  my  last  trip.  Let  me  know  if  you  want  them.  They  are  about  3-3.5  inches.

 Preetam,  
 
 thanks  for  the  offer,  but  as  it  is  I  am  always  short  of  aquarium  space  and  have  to  skip  the  large  species.  Anyway,  good  luck  with  yours.  
 
 At  what  size  do  these  usually  start  breeding?
 
 Regards

 Hi,  
 
 these  small  fish  are  almost  impossible  to  photograph.  However  I  managed  to  get  a  "good"  blurry  shot  of  the  barbs(?)  from  Shravanabelagola,  depending  on  the  lighting  condictions,  the  stripe  in  the  middle  is  sometimes  nice  blue.  
 
 All  of  them  started  feeding.  And  as  a  big  surprise  my  Channa  gachua  from  Shravanabelagola,  even  though  caught  with  a  hook  was  a  greedy  eater  when  it  came  to  goldfish,  he  wouldn't  touch  Gambusia  or  shrimps,  but  really  went  for  the  goldfish.  When  he  gets  excited  he  turns  almost  black.  I  did  not  manage  to  get  a  good  fullbody  shot,  but  some  close-ups  of  his  head.  
 
 I  will  post  pictures  of  the  other  as  soon  as  i  manage  to  get  them  calm  for  a  second  :-)

 As  you  said  Ben  it's  pretty  dark...  One  of  the  reasons  these  turn  dark  is  when  they  are  stressed  out  but  this  one  has  a  fat  belly  and  you've  fed  it  well  so  its  interesting  to  see!   Thumb Up

 On  that  picture  actually  he  is  brighter  than  normal,  should  have  seen  him  when  hunting  for  food,  almost  black  :-)
 
 Any  idea  about  the  barb,  I  know  it  is  a  crappy  shot,  but  genus  or  family  maybe?

 The  cyprinid  is  either  a  Rasbora  daniconius  or  an  Amblypharyngodon.  I'd  say  the  latter  because  of  the  eye.
