 Hi  Guys,  
 
 This  native  fish  "bug"  bit  me  sometime  back.  I  have  quite  a  few  native  fish  including  Asian  Stone  cat,  garra  bicornuta,  rohtee  ogylbyi  and  arulius  barb.  Here  I  am  sharing  pics  of  the  intriguing  Channa  that  i  got  from  a  good  friend.  I  call  him  "the  phantom"  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 His  tank:
 
 
 
 This  is  a  2ft  tank  with  lots  of  plants,  covered  with  aquarium  BG  on  rhs  corner.  He  is  a  very  shy  guy  and  goes  into  hiding  if  the  aquarium  is  disturbed  too  much.  I  feed  him  3-4  times  a  week.  Day  by  day  he  improves  and  changes  colour.  By  far,  this  is  the  best  fish  I've  had.
 
 Cheers,  
 
 Karthik

 Thanks,  the  substrate  is  a  mix  of  construction  sand  and  white  sand.  I  still  don't  know  why  I  used  it.  However,  the  bacopa,  crypts  and  other  plants  seem  to  be  growing  well  with  very  very  less  WC.  
 
 Cheers,

 Thanks  Thishon.  I  feed  him  frozen  shrimp  and  blood  worms  3-4  days  a  week.  No  water  change  (only  monthly  once-  about  20%)  I  keep  topping  up  chilled  water.  
 
 cheers,

 Thanks.  There's  no  filter  as  of  now.  Earlier  had  a  small  filter  with  a  spray  bar.
