 Lovely  channas  Ajay  Thumb Up
 
 For  uploading  more  pictures,  host  your  images  on  other  sites  like  Flickr,  ImageShack,  etc.  and  then  use  the  [img]  tag  in  the  posts  to  link  them  and  show  as  many  pics  as  you  want  in  one  post.
 
 I  still  have  to  upload  your  Channa  and  Clarius  shots,  will  do  so  soon.  Just  got  my  PC  @  home  repaired  Smile
 
 Cheers,

 Thanks  Hayath  for  the  tip...
 
 This  is  part  II  of  the  channa  collection...
 
 Errata:  For  Channa  sp  "Assam"  I  meant  that  they  are  like  most  dwarf  snakeheads,  wherein  they  are  not  relatively  as  aggressive  as  their  larger  cousins.  The  exception  to  this  being  Channa  gachua  (which  as  per  my  experience  are  more  intolerant  towards  their  own  species)
 
 Channa  bleheri  (right  is  the  male:  can  be  identified  from  a  larger  head  and  duller  color.  The  female  has  more  red  flecks  on  her  lateral  part  of  her  body)
 
 
 
 
 bleheri  female
 
 
 
 
 My  all  time  favourite  and  also  my  current  avatar...  Channa  aurantimaculata  (Not  very  sure  of  gender  of  one  of  the  specimen...)  This  one  is  a  male  and  is  approx.  10"-11"
 
 
 
 Currently  with  his  other  tank  mates  (Clarias  battrachus)...
 
 
 Can  someone  help  me  in  identifying  the  gender  of  this  auranti?

 Thanks  everyone...
 
 Aditya  &  Gokul:  I  have  in  all  11  tanks  of  different  shapes  and  sizes,  with  the  largest  ones  (3)  being  3'X1.5'X1.5'  (50  gallons).  I  am  currently  in  the  process  of  upgrading  the  three  50  gallons  to  one  120  gallons  and  two  90  gallons  tanks.
 
 This  is  the  current  setup  (7  tanks,  the  balance  are  in  other  rooms)...  Soon  to  change
 
 
 Space  was  becoming  a  constraint  and  thats  y  the  upgrade  and  rationalization  of  my  fish  stocks.  Gave  two  11"-12"  giant  gouramy  away.  Next  in  the  "giving  away"  list  are  some  3  spot  gouramy,  SAE,  corys,  plecos  and  perhaps  kribs  and  albino  senegalese  bichirs...  I  am  getting  more  and  more  crazy  about  natives...  In  fact  after  these  go,  almost  all  my  fish  will  be  natives  Â Very Happy  
 
 The  current  setups  for  most  of  the  sankehead  tanks  are  combination  of  bogwood  with  some  amazons,  banana  plants  and  vallisnarias  planted  in  golden  gravel...  Not  a  planted  tank  person...
 
 Beta:  Thanks  for  the  link  on  gender  identification.  Though,  still  not  certain  about  the  identification  for  that  specimen  in  question  Sad      Any  guesses?

 You  need  to  look  at  the  head  from  above  and  compare  with  a  number  of  specimens,  there  is  no  standard  head  width  for  sexing  them.
