This is an ID request, but I do not have any pics or video. I will give the best description I can get from my dusty and rusty memory, because the last time I saw this fish was atleast 15 years back, so please bear with me
The one thing hat haunts my memory till date, it had a glowing head. Litreally glowing, some sort of fluorescence I would say. If you want the reason I remember it clearly, then you need to hear my flashback:
My sister got married when I was 10 years old and my brother in law is from a village near trichy (TN) on the shores of Kaveri. They moved into a new house with a well which had no fish in it. So, I was given the responsibility to catch some fish from the canal / river for the well. I remember catching atleast 20 fish and dropping them into the well.
I was kind of curious about this fish when I caught it, but it was one among 20+. But everytime I visited my sister, this is the only fish you can see swimming inside the well, because you can see the head moving around in the dark, like a fluorescent clock hand at night.
Enough of flashback, I would like to know if anyone here has come across a similar fish. A fish resembling a zebra danio, bit bulkier, pretty transparent with a glowing spot in the head (it could even be the brain). This spot would simply stand out in semi-lit or dark places.
Please help me out here... google baba is not of much help
