 Wow!  Good  guess!  (I  did  get  2  dozen  goldfish  for  the  guys  in  the  bag.)
 
 My  photography  skills  seem  to  be  improving..  Most  of  my  "guess  what's  in  the  bag"  threads  consist  of  pics  I  didn't  actually  want  to  be  obscured.
 
 Can  you  try  to  guess  the  genus?
 
 Cheers,
 Sid

 EBJDs  (and  other  CA/SAs)  will  have  to  wait  till  I  go  for  the  CA/SA  set-up.
 
 Black  Aro  is  still  on  my  shopping  list.  (It  got  a  bit  complicated  when  I  read  that  multiple  Silvers  in  a  single  tank  are  not  always  compatible.)
 
 Barca's  are  still  a  bit  outside  my  range.  I  will  need  an  "occasion"  (like  another  promotion  at  work  or  something)  to  justify  getting  that  monster  and  another  tank  to  devote  to  him.
 
 I  think  my  "obscure"  picture  isn't  obscure  enough  and  most  people  have  already  guessed  what  these  are..  (I  know  Shankar  has.)

 Got  these  as  Shortnose  Gar  (Lepisosteus  platostomus).  But  I  am  not  confident  about  the  ID.
 
 As  long  as  they  are  from  among  the  Lepisosteus  and  not  from  the  Atractosteus,  I  am  happy.
 
 (If  they  are  from  the  Atractosteus,  I  am  going  to  be  happy  that  I  am  probably  going  to  have  to  get  a  pond  soon.)
 
 Cheers,
 Sid

 Jib,  I  am  still  not  completely  convinced  about  the  ID.  Will  a  "top-view"  help?
 
   
 
 In  other  news,  I  am  now  thinking  of  selling  my  car  and  converting  the  parking  spot  to  a  "pond".  I  wonder  if  people  in  my  apartment  complex  will  like  to  see  their  pets  disappear  from  time  to  time.

 Well,  it  was  worth  a  shot.  (What  I  meant  was  "Will  a  top  view  help  [change  your  mind  about  the  id]?"..  I  guess  not.)
 
 Thanks  for  the  ID  Jib.
 
 It  will  be  a  great  experience  to  see  these  true  monsters  grow.
 
 The  largest  indoor  accommodation  I  can  provide  is  a  220  Gal.  (6x2.5(wide)x2).  Somewhere  between  now  and  the  time  when  they  seem  too  big  for  a  220Gal,  I  will  try  to  sell  them.
 
 Last  option  is  a  well  in  our  farm-house  in  Alibag  which  has  the  other  large  catfish  which  have  outgrown  tanks  with  my  other  relatives  (cousins).
 
 Cheers,
 Sid

 They  were  on  live  bloodworms  at  the  shop  (@kurla).  I  have  both  live  feeders  and  bloodworms  as  options.  
 
 I  will  probably  follow  the  same  procedure  as  I  did  with  the  FL  gar:  blood-worms  and  feeders  till  they  are  about  7-8  inches.  Then  try  to  switch  them  to  (fresh)  seafood  (shrimp,  jumbo  krill,  silver  sides  etc)
 
 I  guess  eventually  I  will  have  to  starve  them  long  enough  to  get  them  to  accept  pellets.
 
 More  pics  to  come:
