 Not  sure  of  the  Id,  but  cover  the  tank  to  save  them  from  jumping  out,  they  are  notorious  jumpers.

 lovely  photos.  This  is  a  classic  question.  I  have  both  A.parvus  caught  on  the  Coramandel  coast  and  A.blockii  caught  on  the  Konkan  coast.  
 For  the  life  of  me  i  cant  make  out  the  diff  and  they  all  live  in  the  same  tank.  You  may  want  to  post  Marc  on  this  :)

 Thanks  shiv  :)
 
 I  too  read  your  thread  regarding  killis  and  also  post  by  marc  where  he  has  mentioned  that  a.parvus  and  a.blocki  can  be  differentiated  by  their  geographical  locations  
 
 But  the  main  problem  is  that  o  caught  both  these  from  the  same  water  body  on  the  same  day  ,  so  I'm  more  confused  about  their  identities

 @Naveen
 Create  the  same  biotope  based  on  their  surroundings  from  where  you  caught  them.

 @Naveen  -
 
 care  -
 Still  or  slow  moving  water  with  some  floating  plants  would  be  good.  They  usually  take  floating  food  -  flakes,  small  floating  pellets  along  with  live  food  will  be  good.
 
 ID  -
 Where  were  these  caught?

 Naveen,
 
 Lovely  fishes  and  nice  pictures  Very Happy  
 
 I  have  kept  A.blocki,  A.panchax,  A.lineatus  and  A.  kirchmayeri.  Identifying  Indian  native  fishes  from  pictures  is  very  hazardous.  From  the  look  of  the  fish  I  would  call  the  fishes  you  have  as  A.blocki.  A.panchax  is  more  blue  and  bigger  and  in  all  our  collection  trips  we  always  collected  them  from  the  coastal  regions.  The  Cauvery  basin  usually  has  A.  Blocki  which  are  smaller  in  size  and  have  more  yellow  spots  on  them.  You  will  also  encounter  A.lineatus  in  the  cauvery  basin.
 To  house  them  you  have  to  have  floating  plants.  In  the  wild  they  are  usually  found  near  the  banks  and  among  thickets  near  the  banks.  Have  Hydrilla  or  Elodia  or  any  other  floating  plants  to  give  them  a  sense  of  security.  Always  keep  your  tank  covered.  They  will  flourish  if  you  provide  them  live  feed.  Use  moss  as  spawning  mop.
 
 Here  are  a  few  pictures  of  my  killies....
