 seems  to  be  a  young  channa  diplogramma
 
 you'll  need  atleast  a  ten  footer  for  housing  them,  don't  feed  them  too  much  they  live  in  shallow  slow  flowing  water  and  are  labyrinth  breathers.  they  grow  extremely  big  and  are  native  to  south  india.

 Looks  like  a  Diplogramma  or  Malabar  Snakehead,  juvenile.  Either  case,  be  prepared  to  give  them  a  big  tank.  
 
 Cheers,

 They  are  Channa  Marulius.  I  have  kept  them  before.  You  will  have  to  keep  them  in  separate  tanks,  they  are  already  grown  enough  to  show  territorial  aggression  and  will  kill  each  other.  you  will  need  a  pond  very  soon.

 You  are  right  preetham  they  are  already  very  aggressive  &  soon  will  be  moved  to  a  better  place.
   I  saw  a  guy  selling  this  in  front  of  my  office  in  a  pot,  who  was  left  with  last  3  of  them,  since  I  didn’t  carried  any  money  that  time  I  exchanged  to  him  for  2  good  day  biscuit  packets  &  1  smoke   Thumbs Up  (Not  much  difference  on  the  price  what  he  was  asking  also)…

 very  true,  since  they  started  fighting  each  other,  gave  2  of  them  to  2  different  friends  who  has  enough  space  to  keep  them.  Only  1  is  with  me  so  easy  to  feed.
 
 Its  a  very  good  sight  to  see  them  hunt  the  live  food
