sanjoybetta wrote:It is lil confusing Soumya but IMO they r really two different species. Their ecological niches are almost same. P. ranga is also found here in Assam. If u possess both the species than it will be clear to you. Their food habits are lil different. Once I kept few P.ranga in a tank with some widow tetra and some other tetras. ranga used to attack the tetras and eat their scales(which fall from their body). Very interesting behaviour. Later on I removed them. But I have never seen such behaviour in P.lala. Moreover their is some difference in body shape. ranga is lil dorso ventrally compressed than P.lala. And I think most of the dyed glass fishes r P.ranga only.


Feeding or any behaviour never supports species differentiation. Only prove of same species is reproductive isolation (if you are not doing DNA analysis). Behaviour may change through its lifetime.
I am quite aware about this scale nipping behaviour of Chandas. For this reason they are called amacha here (like agacha, weed in Bengali) in the carp fishery business. May adult ranga shows this behaviour more than juvies....

If you are talking about body shape please think about C. nama, do you have this one around Bongaigaon????

So lala may be a different one but I need a scientific paper. I have to search then, if you can find any please send me the link please.....
