 hello,  I  joined  this  forum  because  I'd  like  to  share  information  about  Indian  fish  and  more  specifically  on  Etroplus  maculatus  on  Carinotetraodon  travancoricus.  I  do  not  know  if  you  used  the  same  words  to  describe  these  species  so  I'll  send  pictures  as  soon  as  possible.
 
 I  am  French  and  about  to  launch  a  200L  for  these  fish.  I  saw  on  a  video  they  lived  well  together  in  nature,  but  I  want  confirmation  and  also  whether  you  know  a  little  more  than  what  is  in  their  maintenance  or  other  people  in  their  natural  environment.
 
 Some  of  you  keep  it?
 I  really  thank  you  in  advance  to  try  to  help  me.

 Hi  Julie,
 
 Welcome  to  IAH.  Smile  
 
 Etroplus  maculatus  and  Carinotetraodon  travancoricus   are  well  known  fishes(Orange  chromid  and  dwarf  pufferfish),  and  we  have  seen  them  in  the  wild  too.  But  I  have  never  seen  them  in  the  same  water  body.
 
 I  have  encountered  E.canarensis  and  C.travancoricus  together  in  the  Kumaradhara  river.  
 E.maculatus  are  seen  as  pairs  in  the  wild  taking  care  of  their  young  ones,  sometimes  aggressively.  Puffers  are  by  nature  loners,  and  will  fin  nip  any  fishes  that  come  too  close  to  them.  But  I  have  seen  them  shoaling  at  night  for  mutual  protection  in  Kumaradhara  river.
 
 Anything  specific  information  you  want  about  their  biotopes?
 
 Regards,

 thank  you  for  this  answer  bad  news  for  me  then  they  do  not  live  together.  Yet  that's  what  I  thought  I  saw  on  video,  these  two  kinds  of  Etroplus  are  very  different?
 
 I  put  a  link  to  the  video  in  question  :  video

 Hi  Julie,
 
 I  went  through  the  Video.  But  could  not  see  any  C.travancoricus.  Am  I  missing  something?
 
 At  around  25sec  I  saw  a  Rasbora  daniconius  complex,  and  at  59sec  I  saw  a  Aplocheilus  blockii/parvus.
 
 "  bad  news  for  me  then  they  do  not  live  together"
 Let  me  rephrase  my  statement,  I  have  not  seen  them  live  together  in  the  wild.  But  I  cannot  conclusively  say  that  they  do  not  do  so.
 
 Here  is  a  link  of  in  situ  pictures  of  E.canarensis  and  C.travancoricus  in  the  wild

 maculatus  is  pretty  much  spread  all  over  the  southern  parts  of  the  western  and  the  eastern  ghats  whereas  dwarf  puffers  aren't  that  common.   Haven't  seen  them  living  together  anywhere.  Anyways  if  you  get  your  maculatus  paired  up,  which  is  very  likely  if  you  already  had  a  male  and  a  female,  you  can't  have  anything  else  in  that  tank  as  they  would  breed  continuously  once  paired.

 Is  the  dwarf  puffer  in  Kumaradhara  river  .  .  .  C  travancoricus?  I  always  thought  it  was  C  imitator.
 
 In  that  river  system  all  three  Etroplus  species  live  together  along  with  dwarf  puffer  in  complete  harmony
