PostPosted: Sun Jul 18, 2010 11:45 pm Post subject: Veer dam collection trip- 18-07-10 Reply with quote

 Hello  everyone,  
 8  hobbyists  from  Pune,  did  a  collection  trip,  around  the  Veer  Dam  area,  which  is  located  off  Shirwal,  on  the  NH-4  (mumbai-bangalore)  We  dint  do  much  collection  at  the  actual  dam  site,  but  instead,  collected  along  the  streams  and  rivers  enroute.  
 We  wanted  to  survey  this  area,  as  none  of  us  had  been  there  before,  with  good  equipment.  Besides,  there  is  always  time  for  one  more  fishy  outing   Thumbs Up  
 
 We  had  an  early  morning  start,  around  6.00  AM,and  left  after  an  elaborate  breakfast,  tea,  and  some  smokes..   
 
 The  first  stop  was  a  small  stagnant  waterbody  on  the  outskirts  of  Saswad.  The  fish  noted  here,  were  
 1)  Rasbora  Daniconius  (damn  this  fish  is  EVERYWHERE!!  )
 2)  Garra  sp.  
 3)  Some  un  IDable  fish  (looks  like  some  bottom  dweller)
 
 
 Also  collected  some  limnophila  (aquatica?)  here,  and  some  cryptocoryne  ?  sp.  (  Abhijit/  Adesh  ,  please  post  photos  )   and  some  low  growing  plant,  which  i  doubt  is  aquatic  or  not.  
 
 (Owing  to  my  outstanding  knowledge  of  aquatic  plants,  this  is  the  first  time  i  have  actually  collected  plants  in  the  wild   around  Pune  Sad  )  
 
 
 L-R  Abhijit  (abhijitk),  Varad  ,  Abhiram  (ckarta)
 
 
 L-R  Abhiram,  Varad  ,  Abhijit  ,  Adesh  ,  Sambit
 
 Stopped  a  little  ahead  of  Saswad  at  a  river,  where  i  assume  illegal  sand  mining  was  being  carried  out.  Sad  
 The  entire  downstream  area  was  a  mess,  so  we  were  a  little  skeptical  about  finding  any  fish  here.  To  rub  salt  on  the  wound,  we  found  the  notorious  Jalebi/Chilapi  here.   Thumb Down  
 Collected  some  rocks  ahead  of  this  location,  and  proceeded.
 
 
 Next  stop,  was  a  roadside  stream,  with  VERY  cool  waters.  the  temperature  would  have  been  around  22-25  degrees.
 We  collected  lots  of  woodshrimps  here,  most  of  them  females,  carrying  eggs.  
 Also  collected  loaches  here.  (L.Thermalis?)
 Please  ID  
 
 Also  collected  crabs  here,  for  Abhirams  Paludarium.  
 We  changed  rides  here,  and  i  switched  seats  with  Adesh,  on  to  Sandesh's  mean  machine.
 
 We  then  stopped  at  another  big  stream.  FINALLY  a  chance  to  try  out  our  DIY  30x5  foot  net   Very Happy  
 Fishes  caught  here  were:
 1)Rasbora  Daniconius  (AGAIN  !  )
 2)Guppies   Doh  
 3)Some  danios.  (dani  dangila?  Abhiram/abhijit,  please  put  up  pics)  
 4)Puntius  sp.  Please  ID
 
 5)  Ompok  sp.  (  as  IDd  by  Vyas  )
 
 6)  Another  Catfish
 
 
 
 
 
 We  took  a  brief  halt  at  the  actual  dam,  where  everyone  collected  rocks.  From  then  on,  it  was  back  to  Pune,  using  the  NH-4.  
 We  subsequently  took  another  hour  to  sort  the  fish,rocks,  plants.  
 All  in  all,  it  was  a  fun  trip!  Adesh  who  got  a  headache  midway,  missed  the  most  fun  parts.
 
 Also  missed  Humaid  during  this  trip,  which  was  his  idea  in  the  first  place.  
 
 The  Discus  bros  from  Pune.  Sandesh  and  weary  looking  Adesh  Smile  
 
 Request  Abhijit  and  Adesh  to  put  up  more  pics  and  any  corrections.

 Looks  like  you  had  a  great  time   Thumb Up  
 
 Question:  Do  you  guys  deworm  the  fish  you  choose  to  add  to  your  tank?  If  yes,  how  exactly  do  you  do  this?
 
 Cheers,
 Sid

 Wow  some  fantastic  catches  there  !  the  first  fish  looks  like  a  juvenile  garra  ?  the  second  fish  isn't  L.thermalis  ,  could  it  possibly  be  an  Orenectes  sp/  ?  the  Puntius  look  different  to  any  thing  I've  seen  ,  if  they  are  juveniles  perhaps  they  could  be  one  of  the  Sarana  complex  ?  Rock On

 The  loach  looks  like  a  Indoreonectes  keralensis  and  the  barb  is  most  probably  a  juvi  Puntius  sarana  subnasutus

 Shubhankar,  the  trip  was  nice  and  it  could  have  been  wonderful  for  me  if  I  was  in  best  of  my  health.  I  was  resting  in  the  truck  for  most  of  the  time.  I've  asked  Sandesh  to  post  few  of  pics  from  our  camera.
 
 BTW,  you  forgot  to  mention  that  we  collected  few  round  shaped  rocks  from  our  last  spot.  Dont  you  have  pics  of  various  plants  we  collected?

 It  does.   The  spot  appears  almost  as  a  stripe  when  they  are  inside  2"  and  moves  up  to  a  blotch/spot  around  4"  and  starts  disappearing  when  they  get  close  to  6"  after  which  the  spot  on  the  peduncle  too  "fades  away".
