Some of my expeditions:: Plants and fishes I found


Just sit back and relax. Not to read much, only to see (Thats the way I like it).


From home to home; It was my first genuine fish expedition/ habitat study trip-


The first spot we tried was full of lagenandra-


here's one with flower-


close up of flower-


water was this clear and ice cold-


In search of badis badis/ new variants of Channa-


And found this- Blyxa aubertii-


dont know what this was. Looks quite similar to pelia and grows emmeresed-


some kinda orchid-


And here they are; Badis Sp-


Look at their eyes; aplocheilus lineatus-


And here comes Crypt Cognata from "Guhagar" a place at coastal maharashtra; A friend lives here. Photos are his property-











And then- limnophila sessiliflora


And the HOT Favorite of us all,
Hygrophilla Pinnatifida-

Submerged in the rstreams-


On the lands-




when the monsoon starts, the new light green colored leaves look amazing-


and as they grow-


This is the mighty Western Ghats Mountain range which gives birth to the streams in which these plants and fishes live-




While returning back, in Mumbai, at Crawfard Market, LOL-

@sumer: thank you for the post, that is very, very cool. Is this study you're doing part of a school program and/or work? Or was this trip purely pleasure?

Well some of the friends in that group studied Ichthyology. But for me, it was pure pleasure. I took it as a chance to see the fishes in their natural habitat. And yeah, it made me a better and responsible hobbyist
