    Hi Matt,

     

    I think that came out wrong. All these fish are from the type locality and around it. It has been confirmed that one is the S. rupecula but I don’t know which one right now. There is another fish from a different locality but no clear pics. Let me look for that and post it too.

     

    Regards

    Nik

    Hi Matt,

     

    Yes the Pic 7 is A. botia. The river from where these were collected does drain in to Yamuna river which ultimately drains into Ganges in Allahabad in UP. I went looking for Schistura rupecula and one of these fish is the real deal from the type locality. Would love if you can get me ID’s on the rest. 

    Regards

    Matt at my farm we culture Daphnia in 10’X10’X3′ ponds which are lined with HDPE plastic sheets. We add about 20Kg of fresh chicken manure to this and fill in water. The water will turn green in 2-4 days and then you can add your starter culture. When the plankton levels/Green water gets transparent i.e. visibility of more than 30cm we add about 26Ltrs note not Kgs of Chicken manure. We get enough from 4 such pits to feed about 20000 livebearers of different sizes twice a day and good amounts. You should also get Bloodworms in this if you keep the water level lower about 8inch.

    If the water gets too green and gets a crystal like surface add a few floating plants which will suck the excess right out and then can be used as shelter for your livebearers.

    Thats looking great Colin. Tell me something. When I was in Glasgow at that time you had about what 2 pairs? If I remember you tried pretty much everything you could to get the male to hold but never. What do you think did the trick now? Were those wild or from Allan brown? Are these fish wild?

    My bad Matt. I meant Puntius assimilis – ‘Mahecola’ Barb profile pic contributed by Graeme Robson.

    Hi Neil,

    The SF profile pic from the P. mahecola page looks like an P. assimilis thats found here in Karnataka. But restricted to only one river -Sita. Sold as the Blue peacock assimilis. It looks very similar with the same amount of blue but the red line is prominent only after water changes.

    My fish is very different, comes from Tamil nadu. Completely different species. As of now I am the only supplier/collector of Puntius rohani in India. Even though people had collected this before and sen it as just a geographical variant of the P.filamentosus. But was recently described by a friend of mine.

    The major difference between the P. filamentosus & P.rohani based on morphological characteristics I have seen are the fins. The P. rohani gets its tail & anal fin very red and the tail only on the outer margin. Filaments have clear fins with the black spots at the edge of the tail.

    Colin wait a few months I will send exactly whats on the tin
