 Great  news,  Beta.  Congrats  on  the  spawning.
 
 Are  the  Canarensis  endangered  by  any  chance  in  the  wild?  Which  other  native  fishes  would  you  consider  to  be  endangered?

 Beta,  I've  got  a  good  habit  of  silently  standing  ahead  in  queues.  Got  my  point?   Smile  Guys,  better  luck  next  time...
 
 Make  me  happy  and  you  will  be  blessed  with  abnormally  good  fish   Chuckle  .  -  False  Santa.

 @rgg,  the  eggs  have  hatched  and  the  fry  free  swimming.  I  guess  the  few  of  them  are  perishing  due  to  lack  of  feed  at  more  regular  intervals.  
 
 I've  seen  juvis  of  Etroplus  sp,  acting  as  cleaners  on  other  fish.  Are  these  pecking  on  each  other  Beta?  Try  to  install  a  spy  cam.   Smile

 Suraj:  Last  time  we  were  there,  they  weren't  hard  to  find.  Dennisoni  might  be  endangered  by  now!  High  time  some  hobbyist  took  efforts  to  breed  them.
 
 Shankar:  Bad  Santa!  Bad  Santa!  So  when  you  are  visiting  the  fry?
 Haven't  had  the  time  to  observe  their  behaviour.  Day  time  they  seem  to  be  happily  swimming  about  and  huddle  near  the  surface  at  night.
 
 Raghu:  I'm  guessing  that  its  because  even  a  slight  overdose  leads  to  them  being  infertile.

 Beta,
   I  suppose  Cu  safe  or  medi's  with  copper  would  make  them  in-fertile.  Have  have  had  spawns  with  despite  dosing  melafix  and  primafix.
 
 But  yes  then  i  do  not  have  substantial  evidence  to  prove  it  when  over  dosed.  Like  wise  i  dose  them  to  my  planted  tank  once  every  month  or  2  months,  And  could  still  see  them  laying  eggs.  But  the  dosage  is  1/4  of  what  is  mentioned  in  the  label.

 So  far  as  there  are  no  signs  of  them  dying  because  of  any  disease  I  dont  plan  to  add  any  medicines.

 Raghu,  I  find  most  eggs  will  develop  normally  if  you  provide  them  with  clean,  well  aerated  water.  The  primary  cause  of  fungus  attacks,  IME,  is  stagnant  water  with  the  eggs  in  close  contact  to  each  other.
 
 By  dosing  the  fry  with  drugs,  you  are  depriving  them  of  the  ability  to  develop  a  strong  immune  system.  I  raise  hundreds  of  fry  of  dozens  of  different  species  each  month,  without  the  benefit  of  any  medication,  and  the  mortality  rate  is  less  than  5%.

 Are  the  Canarensis  endangered  by  any  chance  in  the  wild?  Which  other  native  fishes  would  you  consider  to  be  endangered?                

 
 The  Canarensis  was  considered  extinct  a  long  time  back.  The  fact  that  it  exists  is  known  only  to  hobbyists.  No  publications  of  the  Central  or  State  Goverment  department  of  fisheries  makes  any  mention  of  it.
 
 Even  the  latest  'Freshwater  and  Marine  fishes  of  Karnataka'  study  sponsored  by  the  Department  of  Environment  and  Ecology,  Govt  of  Karnataka,  makes  no  mention  of  it.  The  denisoni  is  mentioned  luckily  as  a  fish  of  Karnataka  (distribution  -  Cauvery  river  drainage)  and  must  have  sent  quite  a  few  on  a  wild  goose  chase.
 
 Even  the  fisheries  college  located  only  60  km  away  is  unaware  of  it.  
 IAH  members  located  it  easily  because  of  our  advance  reccee  trips  and  Vinny  Kutty's  article.
