 Beautiful  pictures,
 Yogesh,  Trevor,  Madhu  and  Hayath.
 
 Hayath,  I  think  the  plants  are  
 2nd  Pic-Blyxa  Sp.
 3rd  Pic-  Ceratopteris  Sp.
 4th  Pic-  Rotala  Sp.
 5th  Pic-  Limnophila  Sp.(Ambulia)
 3rd  pic  in  Hassan  is-  Salvinia  Sp.
 
 Here  is  another  habitat,  This  one  from  a  stream  flowing  into  Aghanashini.  This  was  the  site  of  Trevors  immortal  "Bangalore  shorts"  shot  in  2005  Razz  
 
 Most  probably  this  pond  was  created  by  sand  mining  in  the  area.  But  it  would  trap  water  in  the  dry  season  and  constitute  a  Eco-system  of  its  own.  It  would  last  from  October  to  April  and  revive  due  to  pre-monsoon  showers.  If  the  showers  are  delayed  then  the  critters  in  the  pond  were  doomed.  Drying  and  heating  up  of  the  pond  would  be  minimum  because  of  the  thick  overhead  cover.  The  overhead  cover  would  also  contribute  to  the  leaf  litter  and  the  tannins.
 
 One  more  month  till  pre-monsoon  showers.  Will  this  Eco-system  survive?
 28-Feb-2009
 
 
 
 The  Leaf  litter
 
 
 
 The  A.lineatus  hiding  under  some  shade
 
 
 
 An  Indian  Killi  fish-Aplocheilus  lineatus
 
 
 
 The  Cardina  Sp.  Indian  Dwarf(Rainbow)  Shrimp.  The  under-rated  algae  eater.  You  have  to  dig  inside  the  leaf  litter  to  catch  em.
 
 
 
 Juvenile  Puntius  filamentosus.  yes,  it  looks  like  a  P.fasciatus(Melon  barb).  But  I  still  have  this  and  another  one  which  that  we  had  caught  grown  into  adulthood  and  they  ARE  P.  filamentosus.  The  way  the  bars  move  to  become  spots  is  truly  fascinating.
 
 
 
 Finally  the  master  predators/Scavengers  of  this  Eco-system.  
 
 
 
 And  her  paramour.  The  so  called  Fuzzy  Claw  Cray  fish.  He  will  not  die  when  the  pond  dries,  since  he  has  evolved  to  migrate  over  land  in  search  of  water.  He  and  his  wife  were  caught  in  2005.
 
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.
 
 Edited  to  re-load  the  pictures.
