 here  is  a  picture  of  the  gaucha.....  They  are  colouring  up  nicely  in  my  aquarium,  will  post  pictures  soon.
 
 
 
 
 More  to  come....                

 
 This  particular  Gachua  (I  am  not  100%  sure  if  this  was  a  exact  one,  they  were  all  pretty  much  the  same  size   Chuckle  )  was  a  very  interesting  catch.
 
 After  Ben  and  Preetam  had  bagged  3  Channas,  I  was  dying  to  catch  one  myself.  So  Ben  and  I  walked  along  the  canal  for  one  and  found  a  piece  of  decaying  cloth.  It  would  have  been  a  perfect  hiding  place  for  the  channa  so  we  scooped  in  from  either  ends  and  there  it  was  -  a  beautiful  Channa  Gachua.  I  bagged  it  (foolishly  without  tying)  and  continued  my  hunt  for  Killies.  Suddenly  the  bag  slipped  and  fell  right  in  the  middle  of  Preetam,  Ben  and  me.  Ben  knew  Channa  wouldnt  run  far  and  it  actually  just  stayed  where  it  fell.  Ben  and  Preetam  tried  to  corner  it  and  scooped  but  the  water  turned  murky  and  we  couldnt  see  a  thing.  It  was  heart-breaking  for  me,  Preetam  and  Ben  lifted  their  nets  hopelessly  out  of  water  to  find  the  Gachua  sitting  in  Ben's  net.  All's  well  that  end  well!   Very Happy

 Yup,  indeed  very  lucky.  
 
 So  Preeths,  have  the  Channas  settled  in  well?  I  really  wish  I  would  have  had  space  for  the  punctata,  that  was  one  of  the  nicest  ones  I  have  seen  so  far.  But  then  again,  I  have  my  auranti  and  would  not  change  it  for  anything  else.  
 
 Other  fish  have  settled  in  quite  well,  except  for  two  suicidal  rosy  barbs,  not  sure  how  they  managed  to  escape  though,  Anyways,  the  cat  was  happy  for  some  treat  :-)

 Hahahaha,  
 bitten  by  the  Channa  bug?  Yes,  we  should  go  somewhen  soon  for  more  Channas,  even  though  I  am  not  going  to  keep  any.  All  tanks  are  full.  I  might  keep  a  striata  or  marulius  though,  as  I  have  never  had  these  guys  in  my  tanks  and  they  look  awesome  on  photographs.  
 
 Cheers  and  keep  me  posted

 Thanks,  Nayak.  Trips  with  you,  Madan,  Trevor  etc,  in  the  previous  seasons  have  really  been  helpful  and  educational.  Generally  the  biggest  problem  is  with  transporting  the  fish,  and  many  times  we  suffer  casualties  during  transit.  
 
 Dinesh  was  very  correct,  when  he  pointed  out  that  the  real  culprit  was  the  temperature.
 
 We  packed  4-5  fish  in  each  cover.  The  covers  you  see  are  pretty  big,  12X18  LD  covers.  I  got  bigger  covers  so  that  we  could  have  a  lot  of  space  for  air  too.  
 
 I  had  a  lagre  piece  of  cloth  that  was  wet  and  kept  over  the  covers  so  that  the  water  did  not  heat  up  and  temperature  was  cool.  Ran  the  AC  in  the  car.  Finally  there  were  no  casualties  and  all  fish  reached  home  safe.

 Hi  Tabby,
 
 The  Gachuas,  are  pretty  shy....  they  get  scared  away  with  the  red  auto  focus  light  from  the  camera,  other  wise  they  are  fine.  Ill  try  to  take  pictures  during  the  following  week  and  post.
 
 Here  are  a  picture  of  the  Punctata...
