Dear IAH members.
Could anyone let me know where might be a good place to collect some Aplocheilus Panchax within driving distance of Delhi? Will be viwitingin 3 weeks time and keen to collect some specimens if possible.

I am not sure if Aplocheilus sp is found in northern rivers. Your best bet would be to explore upstream of Yamuna which flows through Delhi. I am just speculating, the best of places would be atleast 20+km upstream as its highly polluted around the city.
Will try to update here with more accurate info in a day or two.
EDIT: Seems to be common across southern asia, so think Yamuna would be good location. Slow moving water with some vegetation would be ideal places to look for.

The best time for collecting would be the summer months.If you are planning to take the fish out of the country research the paper work needed. It will probably be long and cumbersome process. You might want to get in touch with some one who exports the fish who can guide you with that.
