 Ventral  Shots  and  description  of  Bhavania  australis,  many  of  the  Hill  stream  loaches  can  be  distinguished  by  the  ventral  head  shots  and  the  barbel  positioning....

 To  Keep  these  hill  stream  loaches  and  other  river  fish  we  need  specialized  tanks,  though  this  has  been  discussed  before,  we  can  still  refer  to  a  great  article  by  Nathan  Hill  who  creates  a  useful  aquatic  device  for  those  who  want  a  river  biotope  tank  with  a  more  natural  flow.  Here's  how  to  do  it...
 
 "The  secret  to  setting  up  a  better  river  aquarium"
 
 http://www.practicalfishkeeping.co.uk/content.php?sid=4922
 
 If  we  absorb  the  new  documentaries  and  scientific  papers  we  can  constantly  learn  more  and  more  about  the  biotopes  our  fish  come  from.  However,  one  tank  concept  continues  to  elude  fishkeepers  —  the  riverine  aquarium....

 To  move  on.....
 
 Collected  a  few  Balitora  Sp.and  Bhavania  Sp.  from  the  Tunga  river.  Thanks  to  Rahul  and  Preetham   Smile  
 
 Have  set  an  aquarium  for  them  specifically.  Funny  to  find  two  "same  niche  specialists"  co-habitating   Very Happy  
 
 Balitora  Sp.
 
 
 
 Bhavania  Sp.
 
 
 
 A  small  Video  of  the  setup.....Tank  set  with  Madhu's  help.  Thanks,  Madhu.

 Of  course,  The  Balitora  mysorensis  from  the  Cauvery  river  are  still  kept  separate.  The  rule  of  Never  mixing  fishes  of  different  habitats,  even  if  they  appear  to  be  of  the  same  species  is  strictly  adhered  to.
 
 Regards,

 New  Description  :-
 
 Balitora  laticauda,  a  new  species  of  stone  loach  
 (Teleostei:  Cypriniformes:  Balitoridae)  from  Krishna  River,  northern  Western  Ghats,  India  )
 
 Abstract:  A  new  species  of  stone  loach  Balitora  laticauda  is  described  from  the  Krishna  River,  northern  Western  Ghats,  India.   It  differs  from  all  known  species  of  the  genus  in  a  combination  of  characters  including:  10  transverse  bands  on  the  dorsal  surface,  deeper  caudal  peduncle,  two  prominent  rows  of  papilla  encircling  upper  lip  where  the  proximate  row  has  small  papillae  while  distal  row  has  larger  papillae,  66–68  lateral  line  scales,  8–9  simple  rays  in  pectoral  fin,  two  simple  rays  in  the  pelvic  fin  and  pectoral  fin  not  surpassing  pelvic  fin  base.   The  new  species  also  differs  from  its  related  species  in  the  ratios  such  as  caudal  peduncle  length  to  depth  (2.21–2.89),  standard  length  to  body  depth  (7.48–8.72),  head  length  to  head  depth  (2.11–2.50),  head  length  to  interorbital  distance  (2.20–2.96),  head  depth  to  head  length  (0.42–0.47),  eye  diameter  to  head  length  (0.13–0.17)  and  head  width  to  gape  of  mouth  (3.12–4.78  ).As  percent  of  standard  length  B.  laticauda  sp.  nov.  differs  from  other  related  species  with  respect  to  caudal  peduncle  depth  (6.3–7.4%),  caudal  peduncle  length  (15.0–20.0%),  body  width  at  anus  (8.7–11.5%),  body  depth  at  anus  (9.1–11.4%),  pre-dorsal  fin  length  (43.7–47.4%),  prepectoral  fin  length  (12.9–16.2%),  pre-anal  fin  length  (74.3–79.3%),  pre-pelvic  fin  length  (44.4–48.3%),  pelvic  fin  length  (19.3–23.7%),  pectoral  fin  length  (24.1–28.9%)  and  body  depth  at  dorsal  (11.5–13.4%).
 
 Balitora  laticauda  (Bhoite  et  al.  2012)  is  so-named  due  to  its  relatively  deep  caudal  peduncle  when  compared  with  its  Indian  congeners  B.  brucei  and  B.  mysorensis,  the  name  being  derived  from  the  Latin  latus,  meaning  broad,  and  caudus,  meaning  tail.
 
 
 It  differs  from  other  members  of  the  genus  by  the  following  characters:  possession  of  10  transverse  bands  on  the  dorsal  surface;  a  relatively  deeper  caudal  peduncle;  two  prominent  rows  of  papilla  encircling  the  upper  lip  with  the  proximate  row  possesing  small  papillae  and  the  distal  row  larger  papillae;  66–68  lateral  line  scales;  8–9  simple  pectoral-fin  rays;  two  simple  pelvic-fin  rays;  pectoral  fin  not  extending  beyond  pelvic-fin  base.  There  are  also  a  number  of  meristic  differences.
 
 The  new  species  is  known  only  from  a  handful  of  localities  within  the  Krishna  River  system  in   Maharashtra  State,  and  was  collected  alongside  a  number  of  other  fishes  including  Rasbora  daniconius,  Pethia  ticto,  Puntius  sahyadriensis,  Hypselobarbus  kolus,  Tor  khudree,  Mastacembelus  armatus,  Channa  gachua,  and  Lepidocephalichthys  thermalis.
 
 Habitat  was  fairly  typical  of  those  preferred  by  balitorid  loaches  with  clear,  well-oxygenated  water  flowing  swuftly  over  substrates  of  boulders,  rocks,  and  cobbles.

 Nayak's  Balitora  looks  very  similar  to  B.  mysorensis  (ZSI-WRC  P/3056)  Ref  Image  1.
