 Hi,
 Managed  to  sneak  preview  the  show  today...It  is  worth  the  visit  as  an  exhibition  and  not  certainly  a  shopping  place...
 I'll  post  pics  in  a  while  but  certainly  not  good  ones  since  many  tanks  didn't  have  any  light  and  no  flash  was  allowed...I  managed  to  switch  on  flash  only  to  get  awkward  pictures  couple  with  my  bad  photography...
 
 Few  exotics(atleast  to  me)  that  I  saw  today  were
 Siamese  Tiger
 Electric  Eel
 FW  Ray
 Over  2foot  lengthTiger  Shark  pairs
 Chilli  Red  Arowana
 African  Arowana
 Panda  Moor  Goldfish
 Shovel  Nose
 RTC
 Red  &  Blue  Lobsters
 "FROZEN  TUBIFEX,DAPHNIA,ARTEMIA,BLOOD  WORMS"  in  freezer
 Moulded  Pond  setup
 
 Luckliy  FH  and  arowana's  didn't  rule  the  show  Cheer  
 
 As  expected  no  great  prices  but  it  is  always  a  delight  when  you  stand  surrounded  by  Lots  of  fishes,dry  items  Smile  The  entrance  ticket  is  30rs.

 I  have  my  observation  on  the  main  'Events'  thread.  I  have  2  tickets  with  me  so  wait  up  if  you  do  not  have  tickets.
 
 Prasoon,  the  idea  is  to  meet  near  the  enterance  correct?

 Hi  Babu,
 I  was  there  today  too.  Yup,  it  ain't  no  shoppin'  place.  A  Flower  Horn  that  had  a  trail  of  ghostly  white  excreta  attached  to  its  anal  opening,  Eels  that  were  dead  in  a  couple  of  tanks,  fish  with  damaged  fins  were  not  exactly  my  idea  of  an  Aqua  Show.  But  i  guess  you  can't  blame  these  guys  who  just  sell  fish  to  earn  a  living.  Good  thing  was  there  were  very  few  FHs  and  Arows.
 
   A  few  nice  fish  that  i  came  across:
 
 1)  North  American  Sunfish  (Probably  the  long  eared  sunfish.  Damn,  i  wish  it  was  a  bit  cheaper!)  
 2)  Leaf  fish
 3)  Some   cichlids  i  couldn't  identify
 4)  Tropheus  duboisi
 5)  Discus  (looked  a  bit  too  colourful)   Shocked  
 6)  Puntius  mahecola
 7)  Puntius  denisonii
 Cool  Some  other  Puntius  sp.
 9)  Bengal  Loaches  (wished  they  were  up  for  sale)
 10)  Fronts  in  different  sizes  (from  2"  to  4.5")
 
 The  sunfish  was  available  at  one  stall  but  i  nearly  swooned  when  i  read  the  price  tag.  Same  goes  for  the  leaf  fish.  I'm  posting  some  pics.  Babu,  i  hope  you  don't  mind  me  buttin'  in.  Smile  
 
 
 
 The  only  accessory  that  i  was  interested  in  buying  was  a  HOB  filter.  When  i  enquired  about  its  price,  i  was  told  that  it  was  a  filter  placed  on  top  of  the  tank.  When  i  repeated  my  query,  i  get  told  that  it  removes  particulate  material  in  the  water.  When  i  raised  an  eyebrow,  the  guy  at  the  concerned  stall  blurts  out  that  all  selling  was  done  only  at  the  parent  outlet  in  Kolathur.  Wasn't  i  put  off...  Sad   
 
 I  started  taking  pics  with  the  flash  on  and  was  half  way  through  when  i  was  told  to  turn  it  off.  But  all  i  did  towards  obeying  his  instructions  was  to  nod  my  head.  Chuckle   The  Sunfish  and  Leaf  fish  sure  made  me  jump  in  glee  which  is  what  made  my  day  at  the  Show.  Overall  it  was  a  good  way  to  pass  an  otherwise  boring  afternoon.
 
 ...Karthick
 
 Err,  i'm  not  able  to  upload  pics.  SOrry  for  the  inconvenience.  Please  visit:

   I  don't  think  that  was  for  sale.  Anyway  i'll  try  and  enquire.  It  was  in  the  gallery  of  display  tanks.
