 Marc,  
 what  would  be  the  major  distinguishing  factor  for  puntius  rohani,  from  the  filamentosus  group?  The  blotch  near  the  caudal  peduncle?

 Puntius  rohani  can  be  be  distinguished  from  the  other  members  of  the  Puntius  filamentosus  group  by  the  combination  of  the  following  characters:  the  absence  of  vertical  black  bands  near  the  tips  of  the  caudal  fin;  the  presence  of  an  elongate  black  club-shaped  blotch  1.5  scales  high  extending  from  the  12-13th  lateral-line  scales  to  the  caudal-fin  base;  and  possessing  2-3+6-9  gill  rakers  on  the  first  gill  arch,  21-23  lateral-line  scales,  seven  predorsal  scales,  ½4+1+3-3½  scales  in  transverse  line  from  the  dorsal-fin  origin  to  the  mid-ventral  scale  row,  and  2-2½  scales  between  the  lateral  line  and  the  pelvic-fin  origin.
 
 If  you  take  just  the  caudal  peduncle  blotch  it  may  confuse  you.  Externally  lateral  line  scales,  absence  of  the  band  on  the  caudal  fin  also  help  id'ing  P.  rohani.

 WoW...  beautiful  colors.
 
 Only  thing  I  can  add  is  -  it  should  be  spelled  Tirthahalli.
 
 We  saw  P  assimilis  juvenile  around  that  place  in  2009  (There  should  be  a  picture  taken  by  Madan  in  the  trip  thread).

 Thanks  Deepak  for  correcting  me.  I  have  changed  the  spelling.
 
 Is  there  any  pic  of  the  P.  assimilis  that  you  guys  collected?

 Why  is  the  mouth  of  this  looking  inferior  to  me?   Confused  Plus  the  wild  caught  fish  in  the  habitat  should  have  filaments  right?
 
 Marc  can  you  come  to  the  rescue  and  explain   Smile

 The  mouth  is  subterminal  not  inferior.  The  horizontal  line  drawn  from  the  upper  lip  should  fall  below  the  eye  orbit  for  the  true  inferior  mouth.
 
 Filaments  have  nothing  to  do  with  wild  caught..........captive  bred  ones  will  also  grow  filaments  once  they  mature.  Moreover  filaments  are  not  only  for  males.........even  mature  females  get  filaments  Very Happy

 Sorry  for  the  poor  pictures.  These  are  in  situ.
 
 
 Check  the  couple  at  the  lower  left  hand  corner.  See  the  difference  from  the  other  three  fishes?
 
 Regards,

 I  guess  the  difference  is  because  the  other  three  belong  to  the  P.  sarana  group....  Smile

 Ahh  Sarana  barbs   Smile  lovely  fish  !  I  picked  up  a  group  of  six  some  years  ago  ,really  nice  fish  ,good  eaters  too  ,at  the  time  I  had  a  mixed  group  of  larger  barbs  in  my  8ft  tank  one  day  whilst  feeding  some  large  earthworms  one  of  my  big  female  Sarana's  must  have  mistaken  a  Brachyrhamdia  catfish  for  a  worm  possibly  due  to  its  colour  ,  pinkish  ,  anyway  it  ate  the  cat  no  probs  ,and  I  heard  they  had  poison  tips  on  their  fins  ,but  I  guess  Saranas  cant  read   Chuckle  anyway  the  Sarana  suffered  no  ill  effects   Thumbs Up  .
