We would appreciate updates from you if possible ashwin. People would love to hear about the habitat and if you are lucky enough to get the canarensis and if you've spawned them.

After a very long wait, I have finally got my hands on a dozen of these fellows. Size is slightly less then an inch.
An updated picture of my setup, without flash and a rare shot that managed to capture all 12 pieces.

Here's a video of them feasting on frozen daphnia. They are almost an inch now.

Hello all,

I am an Indian cichlid enthusiast and very much interested to read the below article by Patrick de Rham. I am not able to find the article anywhere on the internet. So if someone could point me to the link to this article or willing to send it by email, I would be very grateful. Thank you.

de Rham, P. 2000: Etroplus. L'an Cichlidé, vol. 1/octobre 2001, pp.: 91-103 (L'an Cichlidé is an AFC yearly publication).

Dear Janthina,

I have some original information on the 3 Etroplus species, as with my friend, the late Jean-Claude Nourissat, we could observe and collect these fishes in various places during our January-February trip to South India. However E. canarensis was observed only at and near the type locality, at Uppnangudi in the Kumaradhara River, some 60 km upriver from Mangalore, South Karnataka. Actually at this place, Uppinangudi bridge, the 3 Etroplus species were swimming together , with also cichlid like and Western Ghats endemic, Pristolepis marginatus. By any chance, would you read some French? This because I have written an article in that language on our trip and collecting in South India. I could send you (or to other interested people) the text of the article by e-mail if you wish. Here are already the main scientific and aquarium references on E. canariensis:

1993- Menon, A.G.K., K. Rema Devi &W.E, Burness : On the rediscovery of Etroplus canarensis Day. TFH, March 1993, pp. : 146-149.

1991- Talwar, P.K. & Arun G. Jhingran : Inland Fishesof India and Adjacent Countries. ISBN 81-204-0639-7.

2000 - Warzel, F. : Neu importiert – Etroplus canarensis. DATZ, 12. 2000, p. (sorry the pages are missing! In German)

And my article:

de Rham, P. 2000: Etroplus. L'an Cichlidé, vol. 1/octobre 2001, pp.: 91-103 (L'an Cichlidé is an AFC yearly publication).

Sorry that I cannot give you more information presently, as about to leave for a trip to Indonesia.
