 Hi  All,
 
 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   Very Happy  
 
 The  fish  I  am  looking  for  resembles  a  zebra  danio  in  body  shape.  Just  cut  off  those  flowing  fins  of  the  zebra  and  add  more  bulk  to  the  body.  The  fish  is  almost  transparent,  far  more  transparent  than  the  fish  seen  at  http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2008/02/transparent_fish_gives_scienti.html.
 
 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  Sad

 Thank  you  Preetam...that  helps  a  lot  :)
 
 With  the  help  of  your  post,  I  refined  my  search  and  I  found  a  close  match  -->  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aplocheilus_panchax
 
 It  is  the  same  as  the  pic  you  have  shared.I  am  not  100%  sure  if  it  is  the  same  fish  I  caught,  but  by  benefit  of  doubt,  we  have  a  winner  :D
 
 Thanks  again  Preetam  Smile
