 Hi  Beta:
 
 How  are  the  wild  caught  Chanas  doing?  In  the  recent  most  visit,  we  caught  two  more  chanas  but  of  different  body  markings  (It  was  with  Venket    Very Happy  ).  What  happened  to  them?
 
 Veera  and  Nikhil  had  taken  Glass  Fishes...whatever  happened  to  them??
 
 Sriram  had  Yellow  Chromides.  How  are  they?
 
 Update  Guys...

 Hey  Beta,

 Hi  Guys,
 
 All  the  Chromides  and  the  two  glass  fishes  are  doing  well.  I  kept  them  in  a  small  10  gallon  tank  all  these  days.  Now  they  are  moved  to  a  23  gallon  tank  filled  with  rain  water.    They  have  started  to  eat  pellets  and  are  more  active  now.  
 
 The  Chromides  are  a  bit  territorial,  although  the  territory  seems  to  only  of  around  8  inches.  
 
 The  glass  fishes  are  a  bit  jumpy  and  sometimes  bully  the  lonely  barb(one  one  out  of  two  remaining  now),  the  yellow  on  with  vertical  stripes.

 Hi,
 
 Are  chromides  brackish  water  fishes?  I  was  browsing    the  Net  and  could  understand  that  they  need  salt  in  the  water.  
 Someone  please  advice.  
 
 Besides  there  is  no  yellow/orange  coloration  on  their  body.  But  when  I  was  moving  them  from  one  tank  to  another,  I  saw  the  yellow  color  only  when  they  were  on  the  fish  net  outside  water.

 Hi  Veera:
 
 Here's  is  an  observation:
 
 The  Glass  Fish  have  their  mouth  like  a  whale...so  when  they  eat,  it  looks  like  they're  digging.
 Secondly,  they  are  aggressive.  They  killed  both  of  my  rosy  barbs  Sad  ,  much  before  I  realized!!
 
 They  may  do  well  with  Chromides  as  they're  form  the  same  habitat.
 Don't  even  dream  of  mixing  them  with  the  South  American  beauties;  so  is  the  case  with  planted  tank.  They  may  eat  plant.
 
 Bye,

 This  is  the  most  common  one  Parambassis  ranga  (Chanda  ranga):
 
 
 As  some  of  you  describe  them  as  aggressive  it  could  be  either  Parambassis  dayi  or  Parambassis  gymnocephalus  (Less  likely).
 If  you  can  get  some  pics  of  them  I  will  be  able  to  give  an  accurate  ID.

 Hi  Veera,
 Orange  Chromides  are  found  in  Brackish  water  as  well  as  Freshwater  habitats.  If  you  collected  them  from  a  Freshwater  habitat  no  need  to  add  salt.  I  have  bred  them  in  Freshwater  so  no  problem  about  that.
 
 They  show  the  orange  colour  only  when  they  settle  down  or  when  they're  breeding.  Here's  a  pic  of  a  male  in  breeding  colour:
 
 
 If  you  need  them  to  show  colour  keep  some  driftwood  and  shelter,  they  will  colour  up  in  no  time  Smile

 Hi  Beta:
 
 Unfortunately,  I  dunno  who  has  taken  a  photograph  of  it.  Someone  has.  Will  have  to  wait  till  they  upload.
 But  what  we  have  caught  is  definitely  not  Chanda  Ranga...as  it  missesout  the  dots  on  the  body  and  this  is  more  elongated  with  a  fine  blue  sheen  allover  the  body.
 
 It  might  be  as  you  say  "Parambassis  gymnocephalus"  OR  "P.  elongatus"  OR  "P.  thomasi"
 
 All  these  are  predominently  available  in  Karnataka  and  Kerala  waters.
 
 Thanks  and  Regards,

 Hi  Baliga  and  Shivu:
 
 How  are  your  Yellow  Chromides  and  Tilapias  doing?
 Have  you  kept  them  in  a  sp.  tank?  Is  it  a  planted  tank?
 Any  significant  developments?
 Pls  update...
 
 Thanks,

 Some  of  my  Chromides  are  getting  territorial.  I  need  to  move  the  submissive  ones  [5  numbers]  to  another  tank.  
 
 I  dont  have  a  fresh  tank  for  the  Chromides  right  now.  
 Can  I  keep  Chromides  with  Gold  Fish?  
 
 I  have  a  4  feet  diameter  2  feet  height  circular  pond  housing  6  Gold  fishes.

 Hi  Veera:
 
 I  think  Gold  Fish  will  become  feeding  fish  for  Chromides...
 Don't  do  it...
 Inspite  of  the  big  ones  being  territorial,  the  small  ones  will  copeup  in  the  same  tank.
 Beta  will  to  able  to  throw  more  light...
 
 Bye,
