Really great Shankar - love the Batasio, Glyptothorax and Barilius! Are both the catfishes still unidentified?

Wonderful, wonderful stuff Shankar! I have some questions:

- what camera are you using?
- how do you, personally, tell Barilius bakeri and B. canarensis apart?
- what else is in that bag? Do I spy a Garra sp.?
- has Channa orientalis ever been collected in Peninsular India to your knowledge?

Looking forward to the full species list and (hopefully) more pics of your booty. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

P.S. let me rephrase - THE booty. /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

Oops missed your post Matt! : (

I use Olympus Tough 8010.

Regarding the Barils, IMO, bakeri has row of spots and canarensis have small bars. I'll recheck that.

Yep, a Garra sp, the best looking one I've kept till date. Haven't got a confirmed ID.

C. orientalis has been reported in a paper as per Marc. Have asked him to look out for that paper.

Hi Shankar , thanks for posting the video , this barb would make my Puntius top ten every time /wub.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wub:" border="0" alt="wub.gif" /> personally I prefer the name of Ember barb , when the males come into full colour they resemble burning coals BEAUTIFUL !

I assume Melan is short for Melanamphyx ?
