 Got  these  fishes  in  local  fish  market.At  present  I  am  keeping  them  in  a  1.5  feet  tank.                

 
 Great  fish  these  are.  They  are  also  called  as  Climbing  Gourami  in  some  parts.  They  can  crawl  on  land  when  their  pond  dries  up,  in  search  of  a  new  home,  using  their  opercula  for  leverage.  These  guys  can  endure  dryness  for  more  thn  24  hours.
 
 These  are  one  of  the  many  native  fish  who  haven't  found  their  rightful  place  in  the  hobby,  by  scale.  Keep  the  water  level  atleast  10"  below  the  tank  brim  (which  appears  to  be  impractical  in  your  case,  due  to  tank  size  )  or  use  a  tight  fitting  lid  if  you  don't  want  to  lose  these  beauties.
 
 I  was  looking  for  them  for  my  native  monster  setup,  long  back,  but  wasn't  able  to  lay  my  hands  on  one.  If  you  can  ship  these  to  Mumbai,  let  me  know.
 
 All  the  best  with  these.

 I  started  my  fish  keeping  with  them  when  i  was  young.  I  used  to  keep  them  (small  size)  in  the  big  horlicks  bottle  and  used  to  feed  them  all  sorts  to  food  and  me  too  feeling  nostalgic..  Very Happy  
 
 BTW  it  is  called  "Koi  mach  in  bengali"  and  i  have  seen  it  climb  coconut  tree  and  supari  tree  (  not  very  far  from  the  ground  though).In  the  heavy  monsoon  when  the  ponds  are  filled  in  our  area  then  these  fishes  used  to  go  from  one  pond  to  the  other  ponds.  
 
 We  used  to  catch  them  with  nets  and  not  to  forget  they  make  excellent  dish  as  well  (  take  it  on  a  lighter  note!!!).
