 It  started  with  a  horlicks  bowl  and  a  blue  gourami  in  1995  !!  Within  a  few  weeks  a  1  feet  made  it's  way  with  under  gravel  filter  and  an  air  pump.  It  all  came  from  our  (me  and  my  brother)  pocket  money.  My  dad  did  not  object  initially  thinking  it  will  be  gone  in  few  months  !!!!  Then  came  a  2  feeter  and  I  tried  with  lot  of  fishes  I  could  afford  with  my  pocket  money!!  I  became  a  regular  visitor  to  Galiff  street  sunday  fish  market  !!!  Then  in  1999  I  had  to  leave  my  house  for  study,  the  2  feeter  was  there  for  few  more  years  with  a  tiger  shark  in  it.  
 Again  I  started  it  last  year  when  I  came  to  hyderabad  with  a  3  feeter  and  now  I  am  having  another  2  feeter  planted  tank.

 Came  into  this  hobby  on  26-7-2005,  my  daughter's  bday.  Gave  a  a5  gallon  tank  on  her  b'day,  she  has  now  moved  on  to  parrots  &  rabbits,  and  I  am  now  addicted  to  this  hobby.
 I  now  have  two  50g  tanks,  one  planted  angelfish  tank  and  other  oranda,  goldfish  tank.
 I  have  a  third  50  gallon  outside  planted  cement  tank,  one  2  footer  is  lying  empty  ,  can't  decide  what  to  do  with  it.

 I  have  in  this  nearly  6  months,  but  was  fond  of  fishes  since  my  childhood  and  now  planning  to  start  small  scale  business,  but  problem  is  joining  tanks   Shocked  especially  with  braces,  which  keeps  me  back.  I  have  54z15x12  and  24x12x15  at  home  and  i  really  love  them.
 
 regards,
 harry

 Started  in  1986  with  a  goldfish,  that  had  a  tought  time  (water  changes  by  mistake  with  hot  water,  and  similar  mishaps).  Ever  since,  i  had  a  least  one  aquarium  running,  currently  I  am  at  four,  but  space  and  family  are  limiting  further  expansion  plans  :-)

 My  first  tank  was  during  my  school  days.  Had  kept  goldfishes  the  local  way  with  almost  nil  knowledge  of  care.  Not  much  encouragement  form  parents  but  had  the  hobby  going  on  and  off.  Continued  for  about  5-6  years  but  shifting  houses  saw  the  hobby  go  backfoot  with  career  taking  priority.
 Started  again  with  a  BIIIIG  fish  bowl  in  2007  and  now  moved  to  a  marine  aquarium  in  2009.

 Hi,
 
 I  started  with  couple  of  horlicks  bottle  with  few  guppies  in  1977.  In  1978  my  Dad  presents  me  a  2  ft  tank  bcz  I  become  second  in  class  exam.  After  that  I  bought  few  Gold  fish,  Blue  (Cosbie)  gourami,
 Fighter,  Black  moly  etc.  This  I  have  to  buy  from  my  pocket  money  which  was  so  difficult  that  time  I  just  can  not  imagine  today.  
 
 Anyway  till  today  I  continue  and  today  I  have  5  tank  among  of  them  3  for  Discus,  1  for  Shrimp  only  with  Anubius  plants  and  1  for  planted.
