My name is Reuben David,
I'm 22 years old, and doing my second year Masters in Business Administration, in Secunderabad.
My interest in the hobby began at a very young age, there was always a fish tank at home even before i was born, so i kinda grew up with it, i remember from a young age that i always loved to fall asleep watching the tank next to my bed, and this habit remains to this date.
Now i have about 20 tanks which are 2 feet or bigger and numerous smaller tanks, i have bread a few common varieties including bettas, barbs, tetras, cichlids etc. I love keeping exotic cichlids , predatory fish and natives.
Always wanted to get on IAH but it has taken me a while to get here...
Thanks to my buddies Saikumar, Mudhasir amidst others i finally got here...
looking forward to interacting with all of you guys and learning a lot from everyone here,
glad to be a part of IAH,

Greetings to all the members of the IAH.my name is visu and im the new member and i started my hobby in aquariums and bought one 4 weeks ago... i reside at hyderabad and looking forward to get some advice on how to maintain my fish and fish tank.... what iv got is a quite big aquarium(i guess its 50 gallon fish tank) and a couple of black moor, gold fish, freshwater sharks,a few snails residing in it. I just have a pump fixed into it to pump air and no heater or filters. but im looking forward to get them as early as possible. i use regular tap water and do 25% water changes onces a week. And i also want to ask is that where can i buy a graval siphon cause im unable to find one any where...Till date all my fishes are doing good and non got sick nor do show any signs of illness.

I am keeping fish for the last 5 years mainly interested in rare varities of Discus fish. Have a plan to breed them in future although not getting the time I am working as an Accountant in an IT company.
Would love to know the best ways for keeping Discus, about their diseases and also their treatments.

I'm Kishore from Bangalore.
I've been having an aquarium for a few years now. First I started with mollies and gold fish varieties.
Recently (about 2 months back) I switched to Blood parrot fish.
I've got a bit of problem with my parrots. Any help will be appreciated.
I have a 15 gallon tank (2' x 1' x 1')
I'm using gravel substarte, power filter, tap water, 28 degrees temperature.
In the tank i have two blood parrots, two shark and a brown colored chichlid type of fish ( which I dont know abt exactly )
In the past one month the blood parrots have been losing color. They have turned from deep orange to dull orange.
The bigger parrot is slightly aggressive towards the smaller one. Please give some suggestions.
