Please Book 2 Bed A/C. 1 Room for Self. I am in Bangalore, tomarrow
will be staying with my friend at Koramangla, shall Check up with
him for Transportation, and also with Chennai guys about their Plans.
I was away for a while, been busy. Nagendra please count me in , confirmed. Iâ€™ve rescheduled my Pune Trip.
Though I won't be carrying E.canarensis back, people who are planning to get them might already have gathered enough information. Anyways, here some information I came across,
ORIGIN: Only Karnataka and the Kumaradhara River, South Canara, south-west India.
HABITAT: Freshwater streams and tributaries.
SIZE: Most references state it will reach 10cm/4", the species can grow much larger .
WATER: Precise conditions arenâ€™t known, but details on fish from the same river claim that the pH is 6.0-6.5, GHÂ°5, 22-26Â°C.They come from freshwater, so there is no need to add salt to the tank.
Aquarium: These very shy, peaceful cichlids are initially tricky to feed, so donâ€™t keep them with anything boisterous. They rarely wander more than 30cm/12â€ from the shoal. My six fish are kept in a 900 l./200 gal. system furnished with boulders, bogwood and a silver sand substrate. The tank is heavily filtered and has a very high flow rate to simulate the flowing waters of their natural habitat.
DIET: Shy feeders that browse on aufwuchs on rocks and bogwood, and on morsels of food that have dropped to the bottom. Accept brineshrimp, Daphnia , bloodworm & flakes.
BREEDING: There are few canarensis in captivity and no reported spawning. Wild fish are said to breed in their second year. They have a nuclear family with protracted brood care lasting several months. The offspring feed on secretions from the flanks of the parents, rather like juvenile Discus.

...and home made rice is always better than hotel food i suppose! :lol:
Its because hotel rice has soda which swells in the stomach.
Fish do not like that as they find it difficult to swim after eating it.
Home cooked rice is soda free.
I will be bring Hikari, Azoo, Ocean free and Aquari flakes and pellets.
Give the prize fish a choice. What with our Goverment liberalisation and open market rules the fish might just have a laugh at our rice. Times might have changed for them too.
Coming back to rice its the boiled rice variety(thick and reddish) the fishes are used to. The rice eaten in Kerala and South Kanara. Not your pearly white long grained rice or Basmati.
