 Hi  All
 
 Like  we  now  have  a  detailed  idea  about  the  etroplus-canarensis  ,  do  we  have  any  detailed  documentation  of  profile  ,biotype  ,  habitat  ,  breeding  etc.    about  etroplus.maculatus  &  etroplus.suratensis.

 Hi  Sujoy,
 I  have  seen  E.  maculatus  in  Fresh  water  habitats  all  around  South  India..from  Karnataka  to  Kerala.  Similarly  E.  suratensis  can  be  found  in  South  India  in  both  Fresh  water  and  Brackish  water  conditions.
 Most  good  books  have  a  reasonably  good  write  up  about  both  these  cichlids.

 Hi  Beta  ,
 
 Thanks  for  the  info,  but  as  regards  to  the  forum  as  it  is  a  one  stop  info  for  Indian  community  &  specialist  aquarium,  good  if  we  could  have  a  profile  info  on  the  etroplus.maculatus  &  etroplus.suratensis  as  they  are  native  Indian  Cichlids.
 
 We  could  have  some  article  or  write  up  or  comments  by  aquarist  from  India  on  the  etroplus.maculatus  &  etroplus.suratensis  as  reference  point  as  well  
 
 As  for  me  I  have  not  kept  any  etroplus.maculatus  &  etroplus.suratensis  hence  I  do  not  have  considerable  knowledge.  First  hand  info  would  be  welcome  as  often  books  have  wrong  documentation.  
 
 May  be  what  I  could  suggest  was  to  have  a  knowledge  bank  about  all  known  Indian  Native  fishes  including  their  profile,  biotype,  water  conditions,  breeding  habits  etc  which  many  aquarists  from  their  experience  and  field  trips  must  have  known.  This  will  help  us  as  a  community  to  be  more  aware  of  our  own  natural  resources  of  native  Indian  fish.    
 
 Any  contributors  ?
 
 Regards
 
 Sujoy

 Both  the  Etroplines  are  very  common  in  streams,  rivers  &  cannals  flowing  through  and  from  the  western  gharts.    I've  found  E.maculatus  and  E.suratensis  in  the  same  waters.    I've  read  that  E.maculatus  cleans  E.suratensis  off  parasites.    One  misconsuption  about  E.suratensis  is,  it  is  said  that  it  doesn't  grow  over  5"  in  freshwater.    But  i've  seen  a  6"  specimen  in  the  tributaries  of  River  Bhavani  and  local  fishermen  say  they've  caught  9"  specimen.
 I  found  E.maculatus  guarding  their  fry  last  month  when  the  monsoons  started.    Bingo!    they  were  guarding  their  fry  against  Tilapia  (Oreochromis  mossambicus)!    A  3"  fish  capeable  of  holding  its  fry  with  a  6"  monster.    I  found  breeding  pairs  guarding  both  in  rocky  &  muddy  areas.    The  male  was  found  in  its  'breeding  dress',  the  lower  half  of  its  body  turning  almost  black  and  the  spots  becoming  very  prominent.    But  when  my  maculatus  bred  the  male  didn't  have  such  a  prominent  'breeding  colour'.The  fry  were  pecking  on  the  algae  on  rocks.
 Even  in  aquarium  both  the  etroplines  co-existed  peacefully.
 Last  but  not  the  least,  Etroplines  are  great  fish  to  keep  be  it  maculatus  or  suratensis  or  canarensis,  packed  full  of  personality.

 Hi  Admin  /  Ravi  /  Beta  /  all  concerned  members
 
 I  had  just  been  to  the  site  of  ANGFA  and  see  their  database,  very  well  organized  and  kept.
 
 Would  be  wonderful    to  have  a  database  like  this  for  native  Indian  fish.
 
 Link  :-  http://db.angfa.org.au
 
 Please  see  if  at  all  we  can  have  something  like  this  done.
 
 Regards
 
 Sujoy
