 Are  they  common  in  India  ?  
 
 May  I  know  what  sort  of  natural  habitat  do  they  come  from  ?  do  they  need  fast  flowing  water,  cool  water  temperature,  high  oxygen  etc..  ?  some  info  on  the  water  requirement  will  be  great  !  
 
 Thanks

 Smile  has  been  found  in  fast-moving  rivers  with  sandy  bottoms,they  are  not  that  common  i  guess
 Size            180mm  (7.1")  
      pH   6.0  -  7.0
    Temperature   10.0-22.0°C  or  50-71.6°F  (Show  others  within  this  range)
       Needs  well  oxygenated  water.
    Feeding   Readily  feeds  on  live  or  frozen  foods  such  as  bloodworms,  but  does  not  take  prepared  foods.
   
   Furniture   A  sandy  bottom  with  numerous  rocks  and  some  driftwood.  Strong  current  and  cool  water  is  necessary,  as  these  fishes  are  very  sensitive  to  both  temperature  and  oxygen  levels.
 
 think  that  helps  Very Happy

 I  used  to  keep  4  for  abt  3  to  4  months  till  one  incident  that  went  wrong  -  I  use  a  new  water  treatment  product  and  I  lost  all  of  them.  
   
 As  what  I  read  over  the  internet,  most  info  stated  that  this  fish  prefers  fast  water  etc..  however,  my  fish  seem  to  prefer  the  quieter  spot  away  for  the  water  flow  in  the  tank.  That's  why  I  started  this  thread  hoping  to  get  some  clarification.
 
 btw,  are  they  hard  to  get  in  India  ?
