Interesting  pics  Tabrez...
 
 Well,  the  mystery  deepens...  they  look  different  from  the  ones  collected  from  Karnataka.
 
 Don't  have  a  clear  explanation,  but  my  2  cents  on  this  is  that  the  channas  are  still  not  a  popular  aquarium  fish  and  there  are  a  fair  no.  of  variants  yet  to  be  discovered.  Some  of  the  species  like  the  gachua,  striata,  stewarti  have  been  sometimes  been  categorized  as  a  complex.  This  means  that  there  are  a  fair  no.  of  similar  yet  distinct  (sub)  species.
 
 For  example,  a  Channa  sp  'True  Blue'  is  considered  by  many  to  be  part  of  the  stewarti  complex.  Same  is  the  case  for  sp  'Meghalaya  Leopard'  and  sp  'Patterned'.  In  fact,  it  gets  difficult  to  identify  some  of  these  when  they  are  stressed  and  their  typical  coloration  is  not  visible...
 
 So  you  never  know...  u  may  have  either  a  color  variant  or  a  new  sub-species...                

 
 i  second  you  Ajay...  There  should  be  a  fair  no.  of  similar  yet  distinct  species..  And  I  hope  there  are  much  more  to  be  discovered  yet!!   :D

 Tabrez...The  two  sp  Turquoise  pairs  I  had  bred  Thrice  between  them...Looks  like  we  need  to  name  it  sp  "Horny"  Smile
                 

 
   ROFL   Indeed  Vyas,  actually  I  am  feeding  them  very  irregularly  now  because  of  the  fear  they  might  breed  again!   Chuckle

 "sp.  turquoise"  is  a  trade  name  applied  to  a  gachua  like  fish  from  Assam.  It  has  no  taxonomic  basis.  The  word  "turquoise",  just  like  the  words  "true  blue",  "meghalaya  leopard",  "violet  moonbeam"  etc.,  is  designed  to  help  sell  fish.  
 
 Opinions  are  divided  on  whether  "sp.  turquoise"  represents  a  separate  species  or  just  a  form  of  gachua.  Last  I  heard,  the  argument  for  a  variant  of  gachua  had  the  upper  ground.
 
 In  the  interests  of  clarity,  it  is  better  to  restrict  the  "turquoise"  to  blueish  fish  from  Assam.  The  fish  from  Karnataka  would  be  best  represented  by  Channa  cf.  gachua  "Karnataka"  (or  name  of  water  body  it  was  collected  from).  If  you  want  a  fancy  name,  call  it  sp.  aquamarine  or  something.  Please  don't  add  to  the  confusion  by  insisting  on  applying  the  same  trade  name  to  different  fish.
                 

 
 Agree  with  you  that  these  are  "decorative"  trade  names  which  are  are  obviously  used  to  market  the  fish  (especially  in  the  Export  market)  but  we  as  hobbyists  would  definitely  find  this  as  our  only  platform  to  discuss  the  variations  in  the  fish  and  we  surely  wouldn't  be  wanting  to  add  confusion  even  if  we  want  to  Rahul,  at  least  not  intentionally  ..   Thumb Up     Smile

 Hi  all,
 
 I  am  a  Channa  enthusiast,  who  lives  in  Bangalore.  I  have  not  had  time  to  get  in  touch  with  any  aquarists  in  Bangalore  so  far.  
 
 Is  there  any  chance  to  obtain  a  pair  or  fry  of  these  beautiful  Channas,  maybe  purchase  or  get  it  from  a  fellow  aquarist?  
 
 I  would  also  like  to  get  in  touch  with  keepers  and  breeders  of  Channa.  
 
 Please  let  me  know  how  I  can  get  my  hands  on  these.  
 
 Thanks  in  advance  and  hope  to  hear  from  you  
 
 ben

 Hi  Hayath,  
 
 nice  to  meet  you.  I  hope  we  can  meet  up  some  time  and  discuss  and  share  our  experiences  with  these  beautiful  fishes.  I  had  a  small  C.  marulia,  from  Srirangapatnam,  but  sadly  that  little  guy  jumped  off  a  very  small  hole  in  the  lid  and  became  cat  food.  :-(
 
 Looking  forward  to  meet  some  Channa  -  enthusiasts.
 
 Thanks  for  the  warm  welcome.  
 
 Regards
 
 ben

 Hi  thanks  for  the  welcome,  have  to  admit  though  that  I  am  a  channa-less  enthusiast  these  days,  hence  I  am  looking  for  breeders  or  people  who  want  to  give  away  some  of  their  fishes,  so  I  can  get  my  hands  on  them  again  :-)
