 Needed  a  break  from  my  hectic  work  schedule.Decided  to  visit  this  place  called  damdim,around  12  hours  from  Kolkata.Didnt  know  there  was  stream  just  next  to  my  bunglow,  so  went  there  unprepared  with  no  nets,just  2  pakets.Reached  the  place  around  1pm.I  was  thrilled  once  i  saw  the  stream.After  a  heavy  lunch,  i  ventured  out  to  check  out  the  stream.
 
 Day  1  -
 First  shot  of  the  stream
 
 
 Another  
 
 
 I  was  amazed  to  see  the  rotalas  
 
 
 
 
 The  green  ones
 
 
 The  stream  was  teeming  with  barbs  and  loaches  (need  the  specific  id's  from  you)
 Here  is  the  loach
 
 
 After  a  lot  of  failed  attempts  to  catch  them,  i  roped  in  2  villagers  to  help  me  out.But  they  proved  to  be  rather  amateur.
 
 
 They  did  however  agree  to  catch  some  for  me  next  morning...
 I'll  post  day  2  pics  soon  guys   Smile

 He  did  manage  to  catch  some  for  me  though
 
 
 
 Finally,  i  managed  to  click  some  pics  of  the  barbs.not  clear  though..
 
 
 
 Satisfied,  i  thanked  the  guy,a  and  went  ahead  to  collect  some  rocks..
 The  place  where  i  collected  some
 
 
 
 The  rotalas  i  managed  to  bring  back  home   Smile  
 
 
 Caught  some  channa  fry  too,let  them  go  though..
 
 
 And  here  is  me  looking  all  tired...notice  my  companion,  the  bucket  in  the  background   Chuckle

 Awesome  catch  for  a  single  person!  IAH  chazers  should  get  such  a  net  and  training.
 
 Looks  like  you  got  some  Esomus.sp,  Colisa  liala,  Pseudosphromenus  cupanus,  and  also  one  looks  like  my  favourite  Puntius  phutunio
 I  am  sure  cat-man  will  be  happy  seeing  that  Mystus.sp(?)
 
 Nice  trip!!

 Hrishi,
 
 Great  pics  and  super  work  !!  And  I  really  appreciate  you  giving  away  the  rotala  for  free  -thats  the  true  spirit  of  a  hobbyist  !!  BTW  -  Rotala  Macrandra  is  a  very  poor  shipper  -  it  will  die  if  it  dries  even  a  bit.  So  one  needs  to  be  careful.  Can  u  send  some  to  Delhi  ?
