 Thanks  trevor  for  intoducing  me  to  this  thread.  It  has  some  really  awesome  photos  of  P.  assimilis.  I  strongly  believe  that  there  are  noe  two  species  with  inferior  mouth.  
 
 I  also  feel  that  the  type  locality  has  both  P.  filamentosus  and  P.  assimilis.  Any  morphometric/meristic  data  would  be  appreciated.
 
 The  specimen  from  cauvery(in  P.rohani  paper)  is  very  different  with  a  almost  circular  spot.   The  Pic  Nayak  posted  on  the  other  thread  had  a  P.  assimilis  with  a  circular  spot,  when  compared  to  the  ones  posted  here  which  have  a  elongate  spot.  Are  they  from  the  same  locality  or  different  locality  in  Karnataka?
 
 Thanks  once  again  for  the  interest  shown......Best  regards,  marcus

 Hi,
 
 The  above  fish  is  indeed  Osteochilicthys  nashii.  Thanks  for  the  help  in  ID'ing  Andy  and  Balaji.  Very Happy  
 
 This  was  caught  in  the  Tunga  basin  during  our  trip  Sita  river-1.  Have  to  catch  more  of  these  before  I  post  any  comments.  But  an  excellent  Algae  eater  for  sure.
 
 Here  are  some  recent  pictures  of  one  of  the  prize  fish  in  the  fish  room.  Hope  you  like  it.........
 
 The  Female.  Gravid???
 Dated:  02-Oct-2010
 
 
 
 The  School!!!  I  have  seven.  But  the  biggest  one  is  a  loner  Crying or Very sad  
 Dated:  02-Oct-2010
 
 
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 A  temporary  visiter  to  my  fishroom.  A  hit  and  run  casualty  picked  on  NH17  and  brought  to  B'lore  by  wifey.
 
 Not  intended  as  a  pet.  Will  be  returned  to  its  native  habitat  after  a  week  of  recuperation.  Any  suggestions  regarding  ID  and  upkeep  will  be  much  helpful.
 
 
 
 
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 Indian  Flapshell  Turtle  (Lissemys  punctata).  You  can  feed  it  fish  and  prawns.  And  some  basking  will  help  it  recover  soon.

 Thanks,  Humaid  and  Rahul(retro_gk).
 
 It  is  around  8"  in  diameter.
 
 It  is  in  a  2'  tub  with  6"  of  water  column.  A  stone  is  placed  for  it  to  perch  on.  The  tub  is  strategically  placed  under  the  sky-light  so  that  1/4  of  the  tub  gets  direct  sunlight  for  about  2-3  hours.  yesterday  had  fed  it  grated  Carrot.  Must  be  a  nocturnal  critter  since  it  fed  on  the  carrots  during  the  night.  100%  water  change  every  morning.
 
 The  fish  or  prawns,  Do  I  put  these  directly  into  the  water  or  place  it  on  the  perching  rock?  Will  rock  salt  help  in  healing?
 
 Thanks  again,
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 Every  thing  you  are  doing  is  right.  And  these  are  Nocturnal  as  far  as  I  have  seen.  About  placing  the  fish  in  the  water  or  on  the  rock,  place  it  any  where.  It  will  eat  it.  And  I  have  noticed,  they  poop  just  before  feeding.  I  guess  they  empty  their  tummy  to  make  place  for  fresh  food.  :)
 
 I  have  no  clue  if  salt  will  help  in  healing.

 No.  I  don't  eat  any  endangered  species.  But  to  be  fair  it  is  often  found  in  rural  markets  and  is  a  source  of  protein  for  the  hungry  village  people  of  the  hinterland.
 Search  the  archives  for  photographs  posted  by  me.

 Yes  indian  flap  shell  turtles,  They  have  a  nasty  bite,  and  a  swipe  from  their  claws  can  cause  injury,  I  had  three  of  these  for  over  18  yrs.  They  ate  anything  that  fell  into  their  well,  from  sparrows  to  cats!
