 Hey  Murthy,  
 
 Your  words  were  very  encouraging  towards  Ashok.  Am  proud  of  you!  Welcome  you  all  to  this  ONE  VIRTUAL  PARADISE  where  all  the  "Fishermen"  meet.
 
 I  take  this  opportunity  to  thank  Carey  whom  I  met  after  more  than  10  years  almost,  but  still  has  been  passing  on  many  a  hobbyist  to  me.  His  support  has  been  Priceless!  Thanks  mate.  And  it  will  be  a  blunder  if  I  fail  to  mention  a  few  about  his  Discus.  To  be  simple  -  They  are  money's  worth.    
 
 
 Shankar
 
 I  just  fell  in  love  again  -  with  Discus.  Very Happy

 Murthy,  Thank  you.  I  had  no  doubts  that  a  group  of  such  enlightened  guys  and  gals  on  this  list  would  be  anything  but  tolerant.  It  requires  a  lot  of  patience  and  passion  to  be  an  aquarist  in  India.
 Guys,  I  had  this  incredible  talk  with  Carey  last  week  and  was  pleasently  surprised  that  the  god  forsaken  suburb  of  Kurla  in  North  Eastern  Mumbai  was  the  biggest  place  for  aquarium  fish  and  other  goodies.
 And  to  imagine  that  I  haunted  Crawford  Market  and  Bandra  for  fish  and  other  stuff.
 Now  all  i  need  is  fine  sand  and  garvel  for  redoing  and  replanting  my  tank.
 Can  anybody  tell  me  where  to  find  good  gravel  for  the  plants  I  grow.  I  love  crypts  and  various  Indian  floating  plants.
 Help  here  is  needed  and  I'm  willing  to  travel  all  over  for  both  the  gravel  and  plants.
 Murthy,  thank  you  for  that  warm  welcome.  If  you  need  me  to  help  you  out  I'm  there  if  I  can  get  the  time.
 Just  back  from  Kolkata  but  i  couldn't  make  it  to  Galiff  Road.  I  heard  it  was  actually  Galib  Road  but  the  Bongs  actually  anglicised  it.
 I'm  sorry  buit  Kolkata  is  impossible  for  Bombayites  whio  like  a  more  efficient  city.  The  trams  were  possibly  given  by  Stalin  to  Jyoti  Basu  as  a  birthday  present.
 I  was  stuck  in  a  far  southern  suburb  called  Joka.  The  communists  are  impossible!!

 Ashok  Row  Kavi                

 
 Ashok  you  don't  have  to  go  too  far  for  gravel.  Use  construction  sand  and  seive  it  twice  using  a  1.5mm  and  3mm  hole  dia  seive.
 
 This  will  give  you  sand  with  a  grain  size  of  1.5  -  3.0mm  which  is  excellent  for  planted  tanks.
 
 In  case  the  sand  has  too  many  shells,  keep  it  submersed  in  industrial  grade  HCl,  until  bubbling  stops  and  all  the  calcerous  material  like  shells  and  cement  residue  is  neutralised.
 
 Drain  the  acid  and  wash  the  clean  sand  thoroughly  to  be  rid  of  all  traces  of  acid.  Voila  your  substrate  medium  is  ready.
 
 In  case  you  want  pre-seived  gravel  in  Bangalore  contact:
 
 Minerals  Processing  Industry
 (Minerals  and  Metals  Trading  Co.)
 Plot  No.180,  3rd  Phase,  3rd  main,
 Peenya  Industrial  Area,
 Bangalore  -  560058
 PIC:  H.K  Deepak  or  H.K  Sudhir
 Tel:  080  28395108
 
 Ask  for  "Hardwar"  sand.  Cost  is  about  Rs.4  per  Kg,  for  non  calcerous  gravel.
 
 Deepak  and  Sudhir  are  also  Aquarium  Hobbyists  and  are  willing  to  help  out  others.  In  case  they  don't  have  ready  stock  of  the  above  sand  then  you  might  have  to  take  a  larger  quantity  of  about  5  x  50  kg  bags.

 Hi  guys
 
 Looks  like  I  have  taken  the  longest  time  to  introduce  myself.
 Here  I  am  -  
 Real  Name  :  Suhaib  (30),  Software  Engineer  by  profession.  I  belong  wholly  solely  to  Bangalore,  though  I  manage  to  speak  a  bit  of  Tamil  too.
 Anyway,  been  surfing  this  site  for  about  a  month  -  and  now  a  member  of  ASK  too.  Got  'reintrodiced'  to  fish  in  Jan  2005  -  after  a  looooong  gap  (between  now  and  those  horlicks-bournvita  days  I  mean).  
 All  I  have  now  is  a  18"  X  9"  x  9"  unplanted  (overcrowded)  tank,  and  about  a  dozen  bowls  and  bottles  in  which  I  have  Bettas  -  (I  wouldnt  dare  to  breed  them  though  -  it's  there  finnage  that  drives  me  made  and  burns  hole  in  my  pocket).    Planning  to  go  for  a  larger  tank  soon  -  may  be  3ft.
 At  ASK,  I  have  met  a  couple  of  guys  -  Lancelot  (he  got  me  introduced  to  ASK  -  credit  goes  to  you  pal  Smile  ),  Rasiknayak  (cool  guy  -  never  seen  him  since  then),  Nikhil  (and  his  shell-dwelling  molly  Wink  ),  Adip,  Madan  etc  etc.
 Nice  place  -  worth  spending  a  few  hours  every  week
 Spoken  to  but  not  met  -  Hayath
 Visited  (and  impressed)  -  Vijayblr  
 Heard  a  lot  about  -  Nag  (would  love  to  see  his  tanks  some  day  Smile  -  waiting  to  be  called  upon    Very Happy  )
 Now  to  Jenny/Dolphy  :  I  just  read  you  say  that  you  have/had  107  tanks  !!  Or,  did  I  read  it  wrong  ?  Tell  me  you  are  kidding.  Manitaining  1  tank  and  a  dozen  bowls  drives  me  nuts.  You  should  be  a  Superwoman  if  you  aren't  lying.
 
 That's  about  it  fish  people  -  Happy  tankcleaning    Cheering

 Hey  everybody
 
 Happened  to  realise  that  a  thread  like  this  existed  only  today.To  start  off  with,my  name's  Vinay.I  live  in  bangalore  and  i  am  doing  my  first  your  engineering  in  computer  science.I've  been  a  fish  enthusiast  from  the  days  of  my  childhood.My  dad  got  me  a  pair  of  gouramis  just  to  keep  me  happy  then  and  i  had  kept  it  in  a  bucket.LOL.They  survived  in  that  bucket  with  no  air  pump  for  about  45  days.I  didnt  think  about  fish  after  that  until  last  year.
 I  hav  been  in  this  hobby  for  about    16  months  now.I  started  off  with  a  pair  of  oscars  which  to  my  luck  happened  to  breed.I  dont  even  know  how  that  happened  ROFL  
 After  that  i  had  a  cichlid  community  tank  which  i  recently  gave  away  to  a  friend  of  mine.I  have  kept  a  flowerhorn  in  that  tank  now.He  has  been  with  me  for  about  a  month  now.He  is  small  and  his  colouring  has  just  begun  to  show  out.hopefully  the  so  called  nuchal  hump  appears  after  a  few  months  Smile  
 I  also  happen  to  have  a  silver  arowana  which  i  purchased  as  a  juvenile.Today  he  is  around  a  foot  or  more  in  size  and  he  seems  to  be  doing  well.
 I  have  been  bitten  by  the  discus  and  plant  bug  after  joining  IAH.I  have  already  saved  money  for  4  feet  tank  which  i  will  be  buying  in  a  week  or  so.Hopefully  i  can  have  a  well  planted  tank  in  the  next  few  months.i  want  to  wait  for  some  more  time  before  i  think  about  discus  but  as  of  now  it  seems  likely  that  i  may  house  a  planted  tank  with  either  tetras  or  piranhas  in  them.
 
 Other  than  aquariums  i  like  travelling,photography,futbol,motor  racing,philately  and  numismatics
 
 cheers

 Huh    And  where  did  you  hear  that  shocking  piece  of  news,  Suby????  I  have  only  7    tanks  (SEVEN  ONLY).  Wink  You  may  ask  Trevor  or  Lancelot  as  they  are  the  only  ones  among  my  friends  who've  come  to  my  house.  
 
 You  must  have  been  confused  with  the  figures.  I  had  written  that  I  once  had  177  Platty  babies!!!  And  I  ain't  no  superwoman.  By  the  time  I  finish  water  changes  for  just  one  tank,  I  am  totally  exhausted!!!

 That  I  would  have  surely  misread.  But  7  tanks  is  no  less  either  !!  I  just  added  you  to  the  list  of  tanks  (I  am  not  calling  you  a  tank    ROFL    I  mean  your  tanks)  that  I  wish  to  see.

 Thillu,
 
 Yes,  i  have  over  100+  tanks.  About  60  odd  in  use  at  any  given  time  and  remaining  used  when  we  get  spawns.  Is  used  to  breed  oscars.  9  pairs  if  i  remember  correct.  They  all  spawned  at  the  same  time.  I  had  to  keep  sorting  the  babies  as  the  smaller  ones  were  always  being  eaten.  So  kept  adding  tanks.  Helped  that  living  in  a  place  like  Bhandup,  there  were  small  breeders  with  tanks  to  spare.
 
 No  Oscars  at  present.  Gave  them  all  away.
 At  present  ONLY  DISCUS  and
 BGKF
 Red  cap  Oranda  Goldfish
 Albino  Claris
 Tuxedo  Angel  fish.
 
 Must  say  here  that  we  have  a  great  team  here  at  IAH.  
 
 Regards,
 
 Rama

 Hello  Elaine,
 
 Like  i  mentioned  earlier,  i  have  a  maid  servant  and  two  boys  to  help.  After  the  early  morning  feed,  we  siphon  out  10-20%  water.  Same  in  the  afternoon  and  then  in  the  night.  This  takes  about  an  hour  each  time.  This  is  only  for  the  discus  tanks.  Others  get  a  weekly  30%  change.  Tanks  in  use  at  present  -  58  (counted  them  tto  make  sure).
 
 I  will  be  posting  pictures  of  my  setup  very  soon.  Have  good  spawns  this  time.  Fry  on  body  of  adults.  Will  post  those  too.
 
 Regards,
 Rama
