 fantastic  loaches,  will  try  that  kind  of  trap  on  the  next  trip  :-)
 
 I  know  about  the  bottle  traps,  but  the  localt  trap  surely  has  the  advantage  that  fishes  can  smell  the  food  and  thus  get  more  excited  to  get  in.  I  also  ghad  fair  success  with  bottle  traps  so  far,  but  the  local  trap,  the  catch  rate,  wow,  I  am  speechless.  
 
 Regards  and  thank  you  so  much  for  posting  the  pictures,  learned  something  new  ;-)

 Bottle-trap  didn't  disappoint  us  either,  caught  many  of  them  by  it  including  those  shining  Puntius  as  seen  in  the  net  together.
 Its  just  success  rate  of  local  trap  was  quite  superior  compared  to  bottle-ones,  hence  borrowed  one  trap  for  our  catches.
 
 Suneal  commented  native  fishes  preferred  local  crab-chutney  than  to  our  biscuits  in  the  trap,  hence  higher  success  rate.  Chuckle  
 
 Loach  ID  anyone?

 The  last  pic  resembles  S.  denisonii,  but  the  bands  /  pattern  appear  a  bit  different.  Never  seen  these  loaches  in  any  of  the  trips  near  Mumbai.  Great  to  find  them!

 Thanks  Shanky,  due  to  uneven  strip  pattern  it  was  very  difficult  to  correctly  ID  them.  Spent  hours  on  loaches.com  without  any  success.
 
 Have  few  others  with  different  pattern,  will  click  good  shot  of  them  for  ID  later.  Most  of  time,  they  are  hiding  behind  wood  &  some  bravos  try  to  get  inside  Eheim  inlet.  Very  active  guys  though.  Smile

 Yogo,  the  fauna  you  have  collected  is  quite  a  surprise  for  me.  Have  been  there  before  and  I  know,  how  the  hill  streams  dry  up  to  the  core.  Will  be  really  very  interesting  to  follow  the  source  water,  probably  where  these  fish  have  come  in  from.

 Right  Shankar,  not  sure  if  we  can  get  to  see  flowing  water  there  after  a  month  or  so.
 Need  more  exploration  next  year.

 Cheers  Andy,  was  thinking  them  some  kind  of  Garra  sp.  as  well.  
 Righto,  never  seen  them  bullying/fighting  with  other  tankmates  so  far.  It'd  be  great  if  you  can  post  snap  of  your  guys.  Thumb Up
