Ooh nice pics Nik! Do you have a full-body shot of that last Channa?

Where was the Mesonoemacheilus collected?

Cake or death?

Hi Matt,

The Mesonemacheilus was collected in the Kodagu Dist. of Karnataka.

Here is the full body shot of the Channa. Not a great pic though.

Hi Robert,

They are being exported but only 25 fish have been sent till now. I have not agreed to supply these fish in larger numbers as they come from a very small pond and are not found anywhere else so it just might be the case of a mutation that is only there. So till the time I do not have 4-5 breeding pairs these will have to wait for getting exported en mass. Since I am the only person who has this location it helps.

But drop me an email on [email protected] I can send you more details.

Is that close to the Nilgiri Hills (type locality of M. guentheri)? Doesn't look too far on Google maps...

Matt thats not very far off mate. There are actually 4 or 5 wildlife sanctuaries which are actually connected to each other and run through 3 states of India. It in fact is very close so could be juvenile then I guess.
