 Hi,
 
 Last  Saturday,  Dinesh,  Siddharth  and  me  headed  out  for  an  other  quickie  Trip  to  the  Kaveri.  Ever  since  seeing  Nayak's  Biotope  tanks,  I  have  got  it  in  my  head  to  setup  a  Kaveri  Biotope.
 
 The  biotope  is  not  setup  yet,  so  the  fish  are  still  in  various  tanks.
 
 I  got  back  some  macropodus  species  and  P.  Bimaculatus,  I  need  an  ID  for  these.  more  pictures  will  be  uploaded  by  siddharth...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 We  surveyed  lots  of  newly  constructed  canals  along  the  route,  that  should  fill  up  with  fish  in  the  next  couple  of  seasons,  currently  they  were  no  fish  in  them.
 
 Yes  and  we  initiated  Dinesh  into  the  Channa  club.  He  is  now  the  proud  owned  of  a  reddish  channa  gachua.

 The  fish  looks  like  Pseudosphromenus  Cupanus  Preetam,  I  will  return  you  the  one  which  came  in  my  lot.  Its  pretty  aggressive.
 
 The  snaps  looks  cool  btw,  I  tried  taking  a  few  shots  of  the  Loaches.  Pretty  awesome  loaches.
 
 Finally  Dinesh  sir  got  bitten  by  the  channa  bug,  or  rather  you  made  a  bug  bite  him!   ROFL  
 
 I  will  post  the  pics  at  night   Smile

 These  seem  to  be  jumping  jacks,  Spent  a  hillarious  evening  looking  at  their  antics.  The  go  around  the  whole  tank,  then  line  up  below  the  spray  bar  and  start  jumping  over  it  like  its  a  high  jump  competition.  I  almost  laughed  my  head  off  looking  at  them  jump.  Made  a  video,  will  post  it  once  I  figure  out  how.

 Nice  pics  and  fishes,   Very Happy  
 
 Preetham  and  Siddarth
 
 My  Cauvery  river  biotope  is  no  longer  the  same.  It  is  become  a  temporary  Cauvery  and  Sita  combined  biotope  Chuckle  
 
   Yes,  I  would  like  the  Macropodus  species  for  my  Biotope.  Thanks  very  much.
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.
 P.S:  Preetham,  I  think  Dinesh  became  a  convert  when  you  caught  the  world  famous  quantity  catch  of  the  Channa  Sp.  fry.   How  much  was  it,  80  or  90?

 Will  drop  it  off  some  time  next  week  Nayak,  too  much  work  load  this  week  and  I  need  to  work  weekends  too  Sad  
 
 Well,  i  think  it  was  80  odd  Fry.  Now  ever  since  that  trip  i  have  caught   some  Channa  species  on  every  subsequent  trip     Thumbs Up  Cheer Up  
 
 What  we  need  is  more  people  appreciating  our  native  species...

 Rest  of  the  pics  -
 
 The  machine.  Preetam  will  have  to  take  a  bigger  car  soon  after  all  the  catching  we  have  been  doing.   Very Happy  
 
 
 
 The  first  place  we  stopped.  Fast  flowing  stream  under  a  bridge.  There  was  nothing  except  Gambusia  and  wild  guppies.  Collected  some  Hyacinth.
 Preetam  and  Dinesh  Sir  surveying  the  waters  -
 
 
 
 The  second  stop  -  A  lot  of  rocks  and  Water  Lettuce  collected.
 
 
 
 
 
 Through  a  village  in  search  of  new  locations
 
 
 
 Didnt  get  any  fish  but  reached  this  really  beautiful  church   Smile  
 
 
 
 Channa  food(Tilapia)  and  some  rice  fish
 
 
 
 Only  got  loaches  back  -  Please  ID.  Looks  like  some  schistura.
 
 In  the  tank  
 
 
 A  close  up
 
 
 The  best  catch  is  with  Dinesh  Sir  so  we  will  have  to  wait  for  him  to  post  a  pic  of  it.
 
 @  Dinesh  Sir,
 Requesting  for  Channa  Pic   Chuckle  
 
 The  funniest  part  of  the  trip  -  Four  people  in  a  Yellow  Tata  Nano  trying  to  make  an  incline  in  reverse  gear  with  the  AC  on  (I  presume  this  as  all  the  window  panes  were  closed)  in  the  dead  of  heat!  You  could  hear  the  car  crying  for  help   ROFL

 New  canals,  wow  more  trips  to  the  Kaveri  needed.
 Where  did  you  guys  hit  the  Kaveri  ?
 I  don't  think  we  can  truly  explore  any  river  system  even  after  dozens  of  trips.

 I  need  to  get  a  Photography  tank  made  for  the  outings,  The  fish  loose  most  of  their  colour  by  the  time  we  are  back  in  Bangalore.  The  trip  was  planned  on  very  short  notice,  we  targeted  a  few  species  we  had  missed  out  in  the  the  previous  trip.  We  did  not  get  back  much  this  time  but  only  what  was  needed.  The  rosy  barbs  here  were  of  better  quality  than  the  previous  lot.  There  were  no  parasites  on  them  either.
 
 We  managed  to  get  a  few  large  specimens  of  the  loaches  shown  in  the  picture,  almost  2.5  inches  in  size.
 
 Visited  Haroballi  Dam,  looks  like  if  you  lost  a  slipper  in  bangalore  this  is  where  you  would  find  it  floating.  Lakhs  of  slippers  had  collected  in  the  dam  waters.  Not  a  good  spot  to  fish.
 
 Water  temperature  at  the  collection  spots  was  an  issue  thats  needs  discussion  in  a  seperate  thread.  What  we  found  was  quite  perplexing.  More  on  that  later.
 
 The  roads  in  rural  regions  are  getting  a  face  lift.  No  pot  holes  outside  bangalore  i  should  say.  The  entire  stretch  upto  sangam  except  500  meters  at  the  spot  is  completely  asphalted.  that  last  stretch  would  have  been  completed  by  today.
