 The  Glypt  sp  2?  another  one  dead.  Chilling  out  in  the  freezer.  Lost  the  first  one  into  the  HOB,  that  came  out  as  Catfish  soup.
 
 This  one  got  infected  by  some  unknown  skin  infection  overnight.

 One  of  the  best  HS  Catfish  species  I  have  ever  kept.

 Shankar,  what  difference  do  you  find  between  the  two?   Guess  both  were  collected  in  the  same  type  locality.

 The  above  is  sleek  and  elongated.  Eating  and  hunting  habits  are  different.  Swimming  and  hiding  preferences  vary.  Much  more  bright  in  colours  than  malabarensis(?).

 G.  malabarensis  vs  G.  anamalaiensis

 This  might  help  you  Mudassir.
 
 http://www.loaches.com/articles/hillstream-loaches-the-specialists-at-life-in-the-fast-lane
 
 Also  what  are  you  feeding  them?  Have  you  seen  them  eat?  You  can  give  them  blanched  palak  and  coriander.  They  are  not  very  good  at  fighting  for  food  so  I  would  suggest   keep  them  in  a  species  tank.  
 
 Beta  is  right  you  also  need  a  good  powerhead  which  spews  out  a  lot  of  bubbles  to  make  sure  the  DO  level  is  high  and  they  have  a  current  which  they  love.  Put  in  some  laganendra  in  to  the  tank  as  it  normally  was  found  growing  and  these  guys  were  found  living  within  them.  
 
 Read  the  article  above  it  will  help  you  with  the  set  up.

 Mudassir  had  posted  this  earlier  -
 
                                                 
Quote:                

 i  have  a  power  head  in  the  tnak  to  stimulate  the  natural  habitat  of  the  hillies,  
 also  have  a  fan  running  on  top  to  keep  the  tank  cool  and  stimulate  the  natural  temp  of  the  hillies,  
 the  hillies  are  currently  being  fed  on  live  tubifex  which  they  gobble  up  crazily,  at  time  i  do  offer  tetra  bits  which  they  dont  like  that  much  but  do  eat  it,  
                 

 
 Mudassir,
 Make  sure  you  have  added  a  airline  to  the  powerhead  as  Nikhil  suggested.  As  far  as  I  know,  DO  is  the  key  thing  for  their  survival.
 
 And  tubifex  worms  might  not  be  that  ideal  as  they  are  known  to  carry  diseases.

 One  issue  that  i  noticed  with  powerheads  is  that  they  heat  up  the  water,  quite  a  bit.  Temperature  goes  up,  DO  decreases.  
 
 I  have  my  hllstreams  in  a  tank  with  very  strong  lighting  and  fertilize,  in  order  to  maintain  a  heavy  algae  growth.  It  goes  to  an  extent,  that  you  cannot  see  the  fishes  inside  the  tank,  because  of  green  glass.  
 
 However,  they  do  thrive,  the  smaller  ones  grow  well.  It  is  also  a  good  idea  to  provide  blanched  palak  and  coriander,  as  Nikhil  pointed  out.  Problem  is  that  they  will  eat  it  only,  once  it  starts  decomposing.  Hence,  do  a  lot  of  water  changes.  
 
 I  have  mine  with  other  loaches,  and  no  losses  since  about  2  months.  Powerhead  is  really  oversized  though,  1800  ltrs  per  hour  for  a  two  footer  :-)
 
 Hope  that  helps
 ben

 Mudassir,
 
 Benjamin  makes  a  good  point  about  the  water  heating  up.  Thats  the  case  with  most  chinese  powerheads.  Since  Hyderabad  will  get  hot  pretty  soon  I  would  suggest  investing  in  an  Eheim  pump  its  expensive  but  releases  a  lot  less  heat.  The  other  option  is  Tunze,  there  is  a  dealer  for  them  in  Delhi.  The  same  person  who  was  the  dealer  for  Eheim  before  it  changed.
 
 Oh  and  yes  try  not  to  keep  the  glass  too  clean,  a  little  algae  will  be  good  for  the  fish.

 @  Mudassir,   
 
 What  is  the  water  temperature  in  the  tank  ?
 
 Also  what  are  you  feeding  them...  other  than  the  worms  ?
 
 Worms  should  ideally  not  be  fed  .....
 
 Try  Frozen  Artimia  and  keep  then  in  separate  tank  only  for  the  Hill  Streams  they  will  not  be  able  to
 complete  with  other  fishes  specially  over  food.
 
 Regards
 
 Sujoy
