 Hi,
 
 I  am  Muthusami.  S,  a  Lead  Technical  Communicator  working  for  an  IT  services  company  in  Chennai.  I  am  very  new  to  this  hobby  and  started  this  4  months  back.  I  have  a  glass  aquarium  measuring  1.5x1.5x1.5  foot  of  6mm  thick  glass.  Presently  I  do  not  have  any  plants  or  decorations  in  my  tank  but  planning  to  have  a  planted  tank.  I  keep  the  following  fishes:
 
 1.  4  common  gold  fish
 2.  2  medium  sized  (2  inches  maybe)  telescope  goldfish
 3.  2  Koi
 4.  1  white  angel
 5.  2  Albino  rainbow  shark  (babies)
 6.  4  red  zebra  danios  (~0.75  inches)
 
 When  visiting  aquarticles.com,  I  came  to  know  that  there  is  an  Indian  website  for  aquarium  hobbyists  and  delighted  very  much.
 
 On  the  fish  community  I  am  keeing,  please  advise  if  there  is  any  incompatibility  between  the  species  in  the  tank  because  earlier  I  had  2  Ram  cichlids  which  nip  the  fins  of  goldfishes;  as  a  result  I  returned  them  to  the  shop.
 
 Hope  I  will  be  having  nice  time  and  well  informed  about  the  hobby.
 
 Regards,
 Muthusami.  S

 Hi  Muthusami,
 
 Welcome  to  IAH  and  hope  you  have  a  good  time.
 
 Sorry  to  say  this  but  your  tank  needs  an  upgrade  to  a  bigger  dimension
 and  this  is  on  Priority01.
 
 Gold  fishes  and  plants  in  the  same  tank  is  a  strict  NO!
 
 Koi's  are  monsters  in  size  and  hence  called  pond  fishes,  so  you
 know  now  where  to  keep  these.
 Sharks  will  grow  big  too
 
 regards
 
 Dan

 Hi  everyone,
 i  am  having  two  aquariums.  one  is  170  liters  Cichlid  aquarium.
 and  another  is  90  liter  planted  aquarium(newly  started).i  am  working  with  Accenture.  and  i  live  in  Bangalore.
 
 my  name  is  Muddassar  and  i  love  cichlids.  i  am  very  particular  about  clean  water.
 
 cichlid  tank  is  3  x  1.5  x  1.25  feet  with  7  cichlids  and  two  loach.
 
 1.  one  metriaclima  sp  zebra  mbenji(3  inches)
 2.  one  Copadichromis  Borleyi(4  inches)
 3.  two  Cichlasoma  Salvini(4  inches)(not  at  all  Aggressive).  hardly  comes  out  of  its  cave.

 5.  one  Aulonocara  Baenschi(3  inches)
 6.  one  Aulonocara  Nyassae.(3  inches)
 7.  two  Yo  Yo  loach(funny  fish)(2.5  -3  inch)
 
 --(sizes  are  approx)
 --the  gravel  is  sand  with  shells(preserves  hardness  like  natural  buffer),  filter  is  internal  1000  liter  per  hour.  i  break  the  flow  of  the  power  filter  by  putting  a  rock  in  front  of  the  flow.  so  the  water  movement  is  not  at  all  there.  though  the  loach  intensionally  go  near  the  rock  to  enjoy  the  flow(river  based  funny  creature).
 --water  changes  for  Cichlid  tank  is  30-35  percent  every  7  days.
 --the  food  for  Cihlids  is  "Hikari  Cichlid  Slaple",  "Tetra  Cichlid",  Ruby  Red"
 
 Planted  tank  is  2.5  x  1  x  1.25  feet  and  with  16  Neon  Tetras  and  following  plants.
 
 1.  Hydrocotyle.
 2.  Aponogeton  crispus.
 3.  Java  moss  on  a  driftwood.
 4.  Indian  fern.
 5.  Vallisneria  (broad  leaves)(no  idea  which  one,  but  certainly  not  corkscrew  or  spiralis)
 6.  Vallisneria  (thin  kind  of  grass  like  thing(2-3  mm  in  width),  not  even  sure  if  that  is  vallisneria,  usually  seen  in  Takashi  Amano's  aquarium)
 7.  one  sick  Amazon  plant.
 
 the  substrate  is  1.5  inch  of  Laterite  soil(3-4  mm  in  diameter),  and  on  top  of  it  is  river  sand  around  2  inch(<  1mm  in  diameter).  CO2  is  DIY.  i  diffuse  it  with  Glass  diffuser.  and  the  filter  is  "Dolphin"  Hang  back  filter  500  litre/hr.  
 
 --water  changes  for  planted  tank  is  20-25  percent  every  4-5  days.
 
 --the  food  for  Neons  is  "Hikari  micro  Pellets"  and  "Blood  red  worms"
 
 Also,  i  have  a  5  litre  bowl  with  a  Betta.  and  he  eats  Blood  Red  worms  only.
 
 me  off  to  Sleep  now.  i'll  be  definitely  posting  queries  as  well  as  answering  them(all  according  to  the  forum  Rules)....Bye  everyone.  
 Cheers,  
 Muddassar

 Hi  Everyone,
 
 I  am  Pritam.  A  software  consultant  by  profession  and  am  currently  pursuing  my  MBA  at  SPJIMR,  Mumbai.
 
 I  was  introduced  to  this  hobby  very  early  in  my  childhood  by  my  neighbor.  I  did  try  my  hands  at  it  initially,  but  never  managed  to  have  stocked  aquarium   due  to  my  habit  of  experimenting  with  combination  of  GoldFish  and  other  fishes  and  also  with  the  Decor.  (I  never  did  have  the  capital  for  big  filters).  I  had  stopped  during  my  college  days  after  I  lost  a  beautiful  aquarium  when  a  big  sandstone  cave  slipped  from  my  hand  and  cracked  the  floor.  It  flooded  our  living  room  adn  washed  away  my  hobby.  My  fish  did  not  survive  the  night.
 
 In  the  last  few  years.  I  did  a  lot  of  research  and  during  a  trip  to  US,  Idecided  to  start  allover  again.  This  setup  is  in  my  new  house.  I  had  the  LFS  to  set  it  up.  
 
 Volume  :  75  gallon  tank
 Size  :  30X24X24
 Filter  :  1  400L/H  canister  filter  and  a  pair  of  UG  Filter
 Substrate  :  Large  Colored  gravel.
 Lighting  :  2  1.5'  Aquarium  White  Light.
 Planting  :  Plastic.
 Decor  :  1  Sandstone  cave.  (My  reminder  of  past  failures)  &  1  Acrylic  Stone  and  some  bough  wood.
 
 
 I  put  a  pair  of  dollars  and  two  red  tails  shark  to  set  up  the  Nitrogen  Cycle.  Let  the  system  be  for  2  months.  By  the  time  I  got  back.  Ammonium  and  Nitrate  levels  were  down  to  zero  and  Nitrite  levels  were  at  about  10ppm.  
 
 
 
 Then  After  two  moths  My  LFS  gave  me  4  Blood  red  Parrots  and  2  Yellow  Parrots.  To  better  keep  these  fish  I  researched  a  little  on  the  net.  I  became  aware  the  aversions  hobbyists  have  for  Parrots.  The  deformities  and  Swimming  motions,  et  al  were  now  a  part  of  my  life.  I  have  chosen  to  keep  the  fish  and  take  best  care  of  them.  I  know  a  few  of  us  wont  like  me  for  this.  But  somewhere,  I  did  not  have  the  heart  to  send  it  back  to  LFS  and  have  someone  else  less  educated  cater  to  their  special  needs.  They  had  joined  as  1.5  inch  juveniles  and  after  4  months  are  now  about  4".  All  the  6  of  them.
 
 Parrot  research  got  me  into  cichilds  and  this  was  the  time  when  I  discovered  IAH.  Appreciate  the  knowledge  that  you  have  put  together  here.  With  that  I  set  on  to  refurb  my  tank.  The  problem  with  the  old  tank  was  that  the  decor  outshone  the  fish  and  they  were  never  visible.  I  researched  on  the  habitat  of  African  Cichild  and  decided  to  do  the  best  I  could.  
 
 This  is  my  new  tank  setup.
 
 
 
 Substrate  :  White  Sand  (  Washed  and  Filtered)
                           Customized  Egg  Crate  for  safety  from  rocks.
 Decor  :  Caves  Like  hiding  places  made  by  stacking  broken  slate  pieces
                  Sand  stone  caves
                  Small  plastic  Aquatic  in  clumps.
                  Bough  wood  in  the  center.
 Filter  :  2  400  L/H  canister   filters  to  help  in  Nitrogen  cycle.
 
 Fishes  :
                1  Red  Tail
                2  Silver  Dollars  (  5  inches)
                2  Green  Terror  (  3  inches)
                2  Texas  (2  inches)
                2  5-bar  (  2  inches)
                6  Parrots  (3  Inches)
                2  Blue  Dolphins  
               1  Orange  Cichild  (  3  inches  -  The  King  of  the  Aquaria)
                1  Pseudo.  Elongatus  Cichlid               
                10  1/2  Inch  black  widow(skirt)  tetra(Dither  fish)  
                1  Black  Ghost  Knife  Fish  (  3  inches  -  Bought  it  as  a  juvenile  of  1.25  inches)
 
 With  all  these  changes,  my  nitrogen  cycle  is  a  little  off  balance.  but  I  am  doing  40%  water  change  till  things  settle  down.  My  dollars  are  now  about  5  inches.
 
 I  know  it  was  a  little  too  much.  But  then  I  was  not  sure  that  all  of  them  would  survive.  Actually  all  did  other  then  a  pair  of  Spotted  Dubosi   which  were  really  small  (3/4  th)  and  were  killed  by  my  aggresive  Red  Tail  shark  when  i  was  redecorating  the  aquarium.
 
 Anyways,  I  think  that  the  intro  has  become  a  little  too  long,  but  then,  my  passion  for  my  fishes  will  still  outdo  this  if  I  try  again.
 
 All  feedback  welcome.
 
 Regards,
 Pritam
