So here are some crappy mobile images of them, now a days I am too lazy to do take out the main camera :)

Thank you Rajiv Ji :)

Nandi, it is easy to keep them. Dont go for a smaller tank and keep patience while setting and cycling it. Most work will be done.

Any dead fish can flow down the river but it takes a live one to swim back up stream.
