 The  images  in  the  TFH  article  looks  like  A  blockii  I  used  to  have.  But  this  is  just  from  the  colors  and  patterns  (or  the  lack  of  the  latter  compared  to  Preetham's  snaps).
 
 But  I  have  been  told  by  the  experts  -  "Dont  get  fooled  by  colors"  Smile

 That's  very  true  Deepak   Chuckle  
 
 @Preetham,  can  you  post  the  pics  of  the  other  three  individuals  so  that  we  can  see  if  there  is  colour  difference  between  males  and  females.  Males  may  resemble  A.  blockii  externally......

 Here  is  a  pic  of  a  fish  Ben  and  I  had  collected  in  Dec  2010.  These  have  been  tentatively  Ided   as  Aplocheilus  kirchmayeri.  I  will  ask  for  more  information  and  update  this  thread  as  and  when  I  get  some.  Just  forgot  about  this  fish  completely.

 Mrac  you  really  should  hit  me  on  the  head  each  time  you  meet  me.  I  collected  these  but  let  them  go  as  I  had  no  interest  and  had  just  completely  forgotten  that  someone  had  told  me  about  them  being  Aplocheilus  kirchmayeri.  Next  time  Marc.

 Both  Preetham's  and  Nikhil's  fish  are  variants  of  A.  lineatus,  IMO.  I  have  a  few  dozen  specimens  from  various  high  altitude  streams  in  the  Cauvery  and  Tungabhadra  drainages.  Females  show  the  striped  pattern  when  the  light  catches  them.  The  name  Aplocheilus  rubrostigma  (Jerdon)  is  available,  but  I  really  don't  see  the  point.
 
 I  have  a  few  pickled  kirchmayeri  somewhere,  collected  from  Goa  in  2008.  They  are,  for  all  I  know,  identical  to  A.  blockii  I  have  collected  elsewhere.

 Thats  interesting  Rahul,  I  too  remember  the  A.  kirchmayeri  that  I  examined  to  be  similar  to  A.  blockii  but  as  I  had  not  seen  a  live  fish  I  was  not  sure.  Moreover,  in  one  of  Preethams  pics,  I  saw  a  fish  with  green  spots  (first  pic  showing  a  reflected  caudal  fin)  making  me  further  uncertain.  
 
 So  what  TFH  has  shown  could  be  the  real  fish.

 I  thought  I  would  give  this  thread  a  concluding  touch.
 
 As  Rahul  pointed  out,  the  fish  posted  by  Preetham  is  indeed  Aplocheilus  lineatus  only.  I  feel  these  are  stress  markings,  which  threw  me  off  track.   Smile  
 
 Below  are  these  fish  in  my  tank,  thanks  to  Shankar,  Shubh,  Sumer  &  Co.
 
 Relaxed  male
 
 
 Stressed  male
 
 
 Relaxed  female
 
 
 Stressed  female
 
 
 
 What  I  am  unable  to  explain  is  as  to  why  Preethams  fish  show  these  markings  when  they  are  not  stressed....  
 
 @  Preetham,  how  does  your  fish  look  when  stressed?

 Marc  i  am  actually  confused  Surprised   The  killies  had  the  same  colour  when  the  were  caught.  So  i  dont  believe  that  they  were  stressed  in  the  natural  environment.  they  had  the  dark  square  pattern  in  the  wild  when  caught  and  maintained  it.  Rahul  mentioned  that  the  killies  caught  at  a  higher  elevation  will  show  the  dark  band....is  what  he  has  observed.  so  i  am  open  to  any  suggestions  right  now.  could  it  be  that  the  verticle  lines  are  the  actual  stress  pattern  and  the  Dark  band  the  normal  colour???  bears  some  thought.  I  will  see  if  Siddharth  can  post  some  pictures  ,  the  killies  are  with  him  now.

 Actually,  my  killies  behave  the  opposite.  Most  of  the  time  they  are  normal  with  bar  pattern.  You  put  a  net  inside  and  scare  them,  they  show  these  squares   Smile  
 
 Did  your  fish  ever  show  the  bar  pattern...atleast  once?
