Dear All,

Those with acquariums, who need a change of fish are offered cute Channa Marulia babies.

- Intelligent
- Great to look at.
- Can be trained.
- Minimum maintainance.
- Size about an inch long - as of now.

All that is required is TLC and any meat.

Strict conditions:

Genuine caring fish lovers only. No frying pan @ any stage.
May be released at any local govt. owned pond. Great for controlling parasite fish!

Delhi/NCR may PM me.

I have about a 100 with me.

Cheers!!

Sam

PS: even if you don't want to remove your old fish, the babies will be obliged to do so, in time - assured.

Fred,

I will be more than happy to oblige, however, I am non plussed about how to ship them. Plus they are too small for your large lake. unless you quarantine them for a few months....

Remember they are about an inch each, or a tadpole size.

I can arrange some more, specially around Diwali - about 300-500??

And then

Ken, Vikram, Gavin, Dhruv, and I will help you take them out after a few years!!!!

Regards,

Keep them at the canal, Sammo... Dont be sending any off to the Mumbai gang.. Buggers are having their fun with the catlas at Powai...
I will be down there in around Diwali.. Think we can arrange for a meeting with the parents and grandparents of these little buggers ???

Gevin : Sure, will work on their relatives.

Fred: The larger fish are killing the smaller ones. I lost about 8 today. They hold the smaller fish by their head and give a good shake to kill them!! Talk about sibling rivalry. Time is running out, unless you come up with something fast - mule/train.

Bopps: Their intutive behavior will leave you in awe. I saw some videos on youtube on Channa Maurilius feeding and protecting their young. Worth seeing.

In other words - Huge Respect is called for!!

SUGGEST YOU release them at the boat club pool at India Gate... come republic day, we can fish for them during the boring parts of the parade... plenty of gambusia there for them to feed on...

Fred,
I think this decision should not be taken by any individual members - the managing committee should be involved !
Indiangypsy's observation could have serious consequences.

I agree. We used to carry hundreds in matkas to various rivers. They are hardy little buggers and stay healthy and kicking for a long time. In the mutka and on the hook.

BUT I see Sam's maternal instincts being ruffled up so I suggest we all shut up and never refer to them as bait.

Yo! Sam! They look beautiful.

I am happy you called them 'crittes'. I have seen and heard these little babes take the form of a strange 'CREATURE' and scare the hell out of a friend. hahahahaahahaha

The person I am referring to knows what I am talking about.

This sound like a US state govt wildlife fisheries dept., that tries to protect the "tackle market for Bass fishing". Their perception of the middle order of the food chain, where crawdads etc form a very important diet for smaller Bass, is protected hard, so much so that carp that eats the algae and weeds could affect the population of crawdads are hated. We have a different food chain here. Snake-heads are native to our country waters and have coexisted well with other fish - as much any predatory fish would.

We have all seen huge carp/rohu/balm as well as smaller bait fish in the same lake with snake heads. All predatory fish would eat only what they need to eat.

Lets give the devil his due :-)

Cheers!!
