 Some  of  us  hobbyists  from  Pune  had  gone  for  a  short  collection  trip  to  nearby  lake  Garade.  It  is  located  about  15km  from  Kondhwa.  Its  being  used  for  commercial  shrimp  culture.  
 We  had  planned  an  early  start,  5.30  after  a  'brief'  refuelling  Very Happy  .  Inigo  (inix)  originally  from  Chennai  was  also  going  to  accompany  us  for  the  trip.  
 As  usual  Murphy  played  spoilsport,  and  I  dint  wake  up  on  time.  finally  at  5.50  i  finally  got  up,  and  reached  the  meeting  point  at  5.54  LITERALLY,  amidst  some  really  rotten  swear  words  directed  at  me  by  Abhiram  Very Happy
 Only  me,Adesh,Abhiram  had  assembled.  I  was  getting  skeptical  whether  the  trip  would  actually  happen.  But  Abhijit  arrived,  with  his  truck,  and  so  did  Inigo,  who  unfortunately  had  lost  the  way  early  morning.  
 We  finally  proceeded  to  Kondhwa,  where  we  picked  up  Humaid  and  Piyush.
 
 Thats  Me,Adesh  and  Abhiram.  
 
 Reached  the  spot  around  7.45,after  stopping  to  explore  a  small  puddle  enroute,  where  we  had  caught  rasbora  daniconius,devario  aequipinnatus,garra  sp.,some  crabs  last  time.  Spotted  the  same  species  this  time  also,  so  did  not  bother  to  check  it  out.
 
 Lake  Garade:
 
 
 
 Inigo  and  Prakhar  checking  out  some  puddles  downstream  of  the  overflow.
 
 
 Thats  our  DIY  30  foot  net  ready  to  get  into  action  :D
 
 At  the  lake,  we  caught  some  wood  shrimps,  lots  of  glassfish,  Some  loaches,  most  probably  L.Thermalis  and  tonnes  of  jalebis.   Sad  
 
 I  bet  Humaids  oscars  are  going  to  thank  him  for  being  treated  to  Jalebis  in  Shrawan   Chuckle  
 
 
 Humaid  playing  around  with  Nilesh's  D5000  and  his  new  55-200  VR  nikkor.
 
 It  was  a  fun  trip,  i  got  to  hang  on  to  Abhijits  truck,which  was  real  fun.  
 More  than  that,  it  was  really  nice  to  go  on  an  outing  with  Pune  hobbyists,  and  i  guess  FINALLY  there  is  hope  for  a  nice  hobby  scene  out  here.  
 
 PS:  Inigo,  i  hope  you  enjoyed  the  trip  Smile  
 
 Request  Adesh  to  add  more  with  pics  from  his  cam.

 Yeah,  the  trip  was  really  ravishing  for  me  as  compared  to  last  trip  (this  time  did  not  get  acidity  attack  Wink  )
 
 And  as  Shubhankar  said,  this  time  we  saw  a  lot  of  enthusiasm  from  participants.  Though  there  was  drop  from  last  time's  participants  we  are  managing  to  have  substantial  number  of  hobbyists  joining  the  team.  Hope  to  have  more  n  more  joining  us  in  upcoming  trips.  Having  guys  like  Shubhankar,  Abhiram,  Humaid  and  Abhijit  is  real  fun.  Inigo,  your  driftwood  is  still  waiting  at  my  place.
 
 I  will  try  to  post  some  pics  in  the  evening  from  my  camera  (note  that  cameramen  were  different  persons  though  they  were  using  my  camera  Very Happy)

 Being  my  first  collection  trip  I  was  kinda  doubtful  about  how  things  would  go,  but  the  trip  was  fun  right  from  the  start.  The  guys  were  so  easy  to  get  along  and  the  enthusiasm  and  knowledge  they  shed  was  immense.  Prakhar  and  me  will  be  eagerly  waiting  for  the  next  trip.  Clapping

 I  am  a  regular  defaulter  on  the  meets  as  well  as  the  trips  these  days.
 You  guys  had  fun  Smile
 The  lake  looks  cleaner  or  is  it  just  the  pictures  that  make  it  appear  so  ?
 I  am  surprised  that  p.  ranga  made  it  home.

 We  caught  dozens  of  parambassis  sp.;  I'm  not  sure  these  are  Ranga  though.  I  had  two  pairs  of  p.  ranga  already,  and  added  the  wild-caught  parambassis  to  the  same  tank;  these  have  very  different  body  shapes  and  very  much  more  aggressive.  They  were  taking  live  food  before  the  day  ended;  and  had  killed  one  and  maimed  another  cloud  mountain  minnow  by  morning.  Perhaps  I'll  be  able  to  post  comparative  photos,  if  Abhiram  eventually  makes  it  with  his  equipment.
 
 There  was  almost  no  mortality,  perhaps  because  we  got  back  within  a  couple  of  hours  of  them  being  caught.
 
 The  lake  and  its  periphery  was  far  cleaner  than  anything  I've  seen  this  close  to  the  city.  The  water  quality  was  good  enough  to  see  fish  from  the  surface.
