 Friends,
 Did  a  mini  collection  trip  with  family  on  saturday  @  Cunchi  falls  .  Will  post  pics.  The  following  were  the  species  seen/collected.
 
 Natives  :  
   Puntius  conchonius  (collected)  
 Schistura  denisonii  (collected)  
 Macrobranchium  sp  .  (collected)  
 Tor  sp  (collected)  
 
 Exotics  :
 Gambusia  Affinis  (collected)  
 Gambusia  holbrooki  (collected)  finally  got  a  male  to  go  with  the  female  i  have  (the  famous  killi  Smile
 Oreochromis  mossambica  (seen)  next  time  we  will  carry  the  casting  rod,  so  that  we  can  eat  a  few.
 
 It  was  incredibly  hot  and  the  water  just  a  quick  narrow  stream  barely  couple  of  feet  across  in  most  places  except  for  one  deep  creek  like  pool.  Will  post  the  pics.

 @marc,
 sorry  to  disappoint,  the  Tor  sp  after  mature  consideration  and  some  digging  turns  out  to  be  a  Puntius  Bimaculatus.  Still  happy  to  have  one.  Quick  id's  are  more  a  figament  of  what  we  want  to  catch  rather  than  what  we  caught.

 Some  pictures  and  annotation.  
 
 The  biotope  was  dry  deciduous  forest  that  had  dried  up  mostly  by  end  march,  the  date  of  the  trip.  the  water  flow  was  a  fraction  ofthe  monsoon  flows  and  this  gave  us  a  lot  if  shallow  streams  and  crannies  to  try  our  luck.  
 
 
 
 juliflora  sp  was  the  only  green  plant  other  than  the  reeds  and  weeds  that  grow  along  the  water.
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/3L4tZzPHzTkNGrDz2tMQJ1[/img]
 
 A  typical  nook  in  the  water  way.  Careful  observation  will  show  P.Conchordius  in  the  image  as  well  as  the  floater  plants.  The  water  is  crystal  clear  and  the  current  fast.
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/0LtJ7hB5Nov80KkpVJTiix[/img]
 
 
 innundated  reed  beds  had  quite  a  few  fish.  We  caught  lots  of  juvi  S.denisonii  in  such  beds.  catching  fish  here  is  all  about  working  with  the  current.  The  S.Denisonii  are  quite  curious  and  investigate.
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/6Fv1rNVsWUjcDHhiFiJqu1[/img]
   
 another  topology  variant  in  the  biotope.  Ferns  and  semi-aquatic  plants  with  shallow  but  moving  water.  Thick  clay  substrate.
 Not  easy  to  catch  anything  here.  Only  visible  fish  were  the  G.  Affinis  and  Holbrooki  species.
 
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/2tlkEAX5kBFv0UtGsV6IM7[/img]
 
 Loach  haven.  Water  actually  moves  quite  fast  here.
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/1QXsXAsTSo389NEXZd0EEM[/img]
 
 The  deep  pool  that  was  part  of  the  stream.  This  was  the  only  place  where  we  observed  a  lot  of  Oreochromis  mossambica.  All  the  other  fish  including  loaches  were  found  in  abundance  here.  All  you  had  to  do  was  to  get  your  feet  into  the  sticky  icky  clay  and  leaf  litter  substrate  (if  you  have  any  footware  on  it  will  be  left  in  the  mud  and  you  will  never  see  it  agin)  
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/1vBycFjbgMMptT913BLX5Q[/img]
 
 As  usual  the  youngest  drew  first  blood  or  in  this  case  scale.  P.Conchordius  was  the  first  catch.
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/3naVPQ55s2L95TiNoydwKk[/img]
 
 And  every  one  else  piled  on  !
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/0npcTjbWdqxxTEeuYkLFot[/img]
 
 
 Schistura  Denisonii  (as  identified  by  KAS  vetrans)  after  a  week  in  the  tank
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/4jGGBSueQfNZkbdZHtID1A[/img]
 
 S.Denisonii  front  view
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/21F5HYgZMRQMLgZcRgIDjC[/img]
 
 The  red  alpha.  Was  much  redder  when  he  was  in  the  Arkavaty...
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/6BlV7Tkj0AGOkCUbu2KtqJ[/img]
 
 The  catch  just  after  we  came  home.
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/0p7CAO0j8t8AM0pmAQj1OM[/img]
 
 See  how  red  he  was  ?  
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/0IMmBJXnAo2fOw06tBwoSZ[/img]
 
 Havn't  figured  out  what  to  do  with  these  guys  yet...  Macrobranchium  sp
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/1BVlJw56Jolg13NoKYqLhx[/img]
 
 The  lone  Puntius  bimaculatus  that  came  with  the  P.  Conchordius.

 Sir  nice  narration....but  Please  use  Flickr  to  upload  the  picture  so  that  you  can  embed  the  photos  on  the  post.
 It  is  really  hard  to  open  them  up  now

 Shiv,
 
 I  am  unable  to  see  the  pics.  Why  not  load  it  into  the  IAH  gallery  and  add  as  an  attachment  or  you  can  do  as  Jaiby  said.
 
 We  are  a  lazy  lot,  do  you  really  expect  us  to  use  a  URL  and  see  the  pics?  Chuckle  
 
 Regards,

 +1  for  above.  Better  use  IAH  gallery  or  any  photo  sharing  site  where  you  can  hot  link.

 Gentelmen,
 I  have  tried  with  flikr  and  it  still  does  not  display  the  images  inline.  I  have  used  the  insert  image  function  in  the  composer  and  for  some  reason  it  does  not  work  for  me.  for  instance  the  bbcode  below  is  characteristic  of  the  problem.
 
 [img]http://ubuntuone.com/4jGGBSueQfNZkbdZHtID1A[/img]  
 
 The  bbcode  is  in  place  (inserted  by  the  composer  not  me)  ,  however  instead  of  displaying  the  image  inline  it  shows  up  as  a  string.  
 
 Moderators,
 Pls  help.  What  composition  setting  am  i  getting  wrong  ?  It  does  not  work  from  both  Ubuntu  one  and  flikr.  The  url  itself  opens  up  fine.  nor  am  i  able  to  embed  video  from  youtube  either.  I  use  firefox  on  ubuntu  from  my  end.
 
 shiv  
 PS  While  i  am  lazy,  i  am  not  that  lazy  either....

 Even  linking  to  the  iah.com  gallery  is  not  helping....  looks  to  me  like  some  kind  of  permission  issue  or  ACL  setting.,
 
 
 the  images  are  here
