 The  aurantimaculata  have  started  to  get  along  "again",  thank  goodness
 
 
 Trying  to  breed  the  Channa  bleheri,  they  seem  to  have  started  pairing  up.  Lost  one  of  the  group  to  fighting
 
 
 The  Channa  punctata,  this  dude's  got  some  crazy  blues  on  his  dorsal.  Never  seen  this  kind  of  colour  on  any  other  punctata  to  date.
 
 
 
 The  loaches  -
 
 
 Schistura  denisoni
 
 
 M.  triangularis  piggy-backing  on  the  Sicyopterus  grisseus
 
 
 Schistura  semiarmatus
 
 
 Catfish  -  
 Mystus  malabaricus
 
 
 Mystus  canarensis  (?)  -  still  discussing  this  out  with  Rahul
 
 
 Solving  one  of  their  "disputed"  real  estate  Razz  
 
 
 Etroplines  -
 The  gorgeous  Cans  Smile  
 
 
 
 
 Mugshots
 Etroplus  maculatus
 
 
 Etroplus  suratensis

 Some  amazing  snaps  there...
 
 Love  the  colors  on  the  Bleheri...simply  superb  capture  too.  Makes  me  want  to  keep  one  of  these  Chanas  asap.

 Thanks  guys  Smile  
 
 livincorpse,
    No  "one  magic"  setting,  keeps  changing  almost  every  shot  based  on  the  light  and  need.
 
 Jib,
    Yeah,  well  almost.  would  have  loved  more  "Water  bubbles"  in  the  shot.  He  was  more  "Gentler"  when  eating  Very Happy  
 
 Maulik,
    unfortunately  no  external  flash...  had  to  settle  with  the  built-in.  That  really  would  have  been  awesome.
 
 Bappa,
    Thanks.  FTS  just  not  possible  for  the  mudskippers  with  the  way  it's  currently  placed.  Shall  try  posting  once  it's  re-done.
 
 Abhishek,
    The  iporangensis  are  in  a  36"  x  18"  x  15"  tank.  Being  a  native  enthusiast,  kept  Puntius  bimaculatus  as  dithers.
 The  pH  has  got  to  be  super  low,  havent  measured  it  yet.  Heavily  leached  with  Badam  leaves  and  driftwood,  the  water's  nice  deep  reddish.  
 
 The  synspilum  that  I  had  were  killed  by  the  Green  Terror  and  Red  devil  who  were  trying  to  "pair"  up  Sad  
 
 Thanks  Charlie  and  Preeths!
 
 Few  more  shots  then  Wink  
 
 A  shot  of  the  Bhavania  australis(?)  resting
 
 
 Playing  "ball"  with  the  pellet.  M.triangularis  and  A.  elongatus
 
 
 The  new  channa  we  netted  during  the  last  trip.  Definitely  something  from  the  gachua  complex,  but  a  very  interesting  variant
 
 
 
 
 And  last,  but  not  the  least.
 
 YIPPPEEEEEEE,  got  the  Bhavania  onto  Tetrabits.  This  one  even  takes  food  from  the  hand  now  Smile  
 
 
 Cheers,

 Hayath,
 the  Oscar  pic  --"Gorging  on  his  Pellets"  is  awesome!  Do  you  sit  patiently  in  fron  of  the  tank  or  what?  Absolutely  brilliant  stuff  Thumb Up   Thumb Up  .  Wish  you  had  tried  an  alternate  career  with  National  Geography!
