 I  guess  in  the  end,  the  biotope  will  have  only  the  Gachua  Sad  
 
 In  my  observation  all  the  fishes  with  thinner  body  like  bimacs,  killies,  zebra  danios  etc  are  more  likely  to  become  prey  compared  to  something  like  a  Rosy  Barb  which  wont  easily  fit  into  the  predator's  mouth.

 Could  end  up  as  a  Gachua  only  tank.  Maybe  you  should  take  him  and  put  him  in  a  separate  tank.

 Nope,  They  dont  bother  larger  Puntis  species  like  the  Rosies.  MY  channa  gachua  have  grown  quite  a  bit  since  i  got  them  last  month.  They  leave  all  the  larger  bodied  fish  alone.  The  slender  bodied  fish  are  fair  game.  The  only  exception  i  have  seen  are  loaches  that  seem  ablivious  to  the  snake  heads.  Neither  bothers  the  other.

 Its  not  the  Tilapia's  fault.  It  was  invited  and  introduced  by  the  the  Govt.  as  a  food  fish  into  our  native  fresh  waters.  Smile

 Wall Bang  Its  our  own  fault  then!  I  believe  they  had  good  intentions  when  they  did  it,  but  everything  went  so  wrong.  One  question  remains  though  -  was  it  a  case  of  bad  research  or  plain  bad  luck.

 Tilapia  was  introduced  to  provide  a  easily  available  source  of  protein  to  our  population.
 It  has  succeeded  in  that  respect.  Even  today  rural  folk  harvest  the  fish  on  a  daily  basis  to  
 include  in  their  cooking,  free  of  charge.
 
 To  a  large  extent  this  has  happened  to  the  detriment  of  the  endemic  fish  population,  but  has  benefited  humans,
 many  in  the  FAO  will  argue  against  the  bad  effects,  especially  the  people  who  recommended  the  Tilapia  introduction.  :D
 
 It's  there,  and  it'll  not  go  away.
 
 The  answer  is  -  Pure  human  need.

 Very  true,  Siddarth  and  Preetham.  In  my  Biotope  the  only  fish  unmolested  by  the  gachua  was  the  L.thermalis.

 Nope,  Yogesh.  I  have  lost  two  A.lineatus,  one  R.daniconius  and  one  P.  bimaculatus.  But  the  killings  had  stoped  for  a  long  time  after  I  started  feeding  frozen  Artemia  and  blood  worms.  Guess  the  hunting  instinct  is  too  strong.

 Well  then,  to  continue  with  the  Predator  V/S  prey  story..........
 
 Bashing  the  head  against  the  glass  wall  to  unhook  the  offending  gill.
 
 
 Twisting  and  turning  like  a  Crocodile  to  rip  off  the  head.
 
 
 A  curious  onlooker  attracted  by  the  tiny  shiny  scales,  being  strewn  around  in  this  struggle.
 
 
 If  all  else  fails  look  at  the  problem  from  a  new  angle.  Spit  it  out  and  swallow  the  problem  from  the  opposite  end.
 
 
 Slinking  away  with  a  swollen  belly  to  digest  in  privacy.  I  hope  you  have  tummy  ache.  Mad  
 
 
 The  glutton  with  the  tail  of  the  prey  sticking  out,  even  after  two  hours.  Checking  to  see  if  it  is  feeding  time  yet?
 
 
 
 Moral:  Never  trust  a  Predator.  It  can  change  character  anytime!
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.
