 Posting  after  ages..
 
 These  were  gifted  to  me  as  Puntius  Exclamatio  (by  someone  who  knows  his  stuff).  The  name  is  apparently  due  to  the  exclamation  mark  type  pattern  formed  by  the  mid  body  patch  +  the  longish  patch  near  the  tail.  If  not  told,  I  could  easily  have  mistaken  them  for  a  regional  variation  of  Puntius  Filamentosus.  
 
 There  is  very  little  information  about  that  species  online.  Does  anyone  have  more  info  --  specifically  where  these  fish  are  endemic  to?

 Beautiful  fish.  Had  read  about  these  in  few  threads  here  and  other  forums.  But  didnt  know  about  the  exclamation  part.

 Yes  this  species  is  endemic  to  southern  rivers  of  India  and  they  are  closely  related  to  Puntius  assimilis  rather  than  to  that  of  mahecolas  and  filament  barbs,  however  all  are  more  identical  in  the  wild.  Natural  inter-specific  hybrids  are  also  possible  in  sequestered  waterbodies.  The  picture  that  you  have  posted  is  too  cool.

 The  fish  can  be  found  in  kerala,  but  its  a  bit  hard  to  identify  from  its  close  cousins.  Puntius  denisonii  is  banned  and  so  will  be  puntius  exclamatio  if  enthusiastic  money  makers  find  their  way  to  the  golden  ducks  of  Indian  rivers.

 Beautiful  fish  Arnab   Thumb Up   I've  been  looking  for  this  fish  high  and  low.  You  real  lucky.
 
 Puntius  exclamatio  may  not  be  a  valid  species.  It  has  been  speculated  as  a  natural  hybrid  between  Puntius  filamentosus  X  P.  arulius  (group).

 How  did  you  come  to  this  conclusion  my  friend??

 I  feel  this  is  the  easiest  to  identify  from  all  its  cousins.  It  just  has  two  blotches  on  the  body  while  others  have  either  one  or  three.
