First  impression  after  seeing  the  pictures.....  Everyone  from  Chennai  lost  weight  and  sent  it  to  Banglore.   Chuckle  
 
 Hayath...  you  just  tripled  up!!!!   Surprised  Even  Nayak  put  on  some  weight.                

 Must  be.  I  think  it  was  Jose  from  Mumbai  who  mistook  me  for  you,  and  came  and  said  "Hi  Tirtha"  Chuckle  
 
 Well,  From  Mr  Rabi  Venkatesan's  place  we  left  for  Beta's  fishroom.  Could  not  take  any  pics  of  his  fabulous  fishes,  as  the  room  was  packed  with  eager  Hobbyist's  trying  to  catch  a  glimpse.
 Here  is  one  outside  his  house
 
 
 From  there  we  drove  to  the  beach  party  at  "The  Golden  Sun".  (Here  is  where  Saikumar  comes  in,  his  adventure  which  in  the  end  helped  the  Mumbai  guys!)
 A  fantastic  venue  which  was  a  place  of  such  fond  memories,  this  time  it  was  not  the  same.  I  really  missed  a  person  who  was  the  heart  of  these  parties,  a  person  who  was  a  friend  to  all  of  us.  After  the  usual  pranks  in  the  hotel,  we  retired  to  sleep  at  1.00am.
 
 Next  day  after  breakfast  reached  the  venue  which  was  two  buildings  away  from  our  place  of  stay(Thanks  Balaji).  What  ambiance!  Really  loved  the  venue  in  "The  Accord"
 The  Lobby
 
 
 The  participants  slowly  trickling  in  after  registration
 
 
 
 Check  the  odd  one  out.  The  T-shirt  did  not  fit!
 
 
 The  video  of  the  pacific  reefs  was  fantastic.  The  presentation  by  Perikaruppan  where  he  tried  to  put  forward  the  Idea  that  Marine  tanks  were  cheaper  than  Planted  tanks  was  fascinating.  The  next  talk"  How  to  set  up  a  Marine  tank"  by  Dr  Ashok  was  very  knowledgeable.
 
 Then  came  along  "  Marcus,  the  filamentosus  knight"  with  his  presentation  on  how  to  identify  native  Indian  fishes  in  the  field.  Top  class  pictures  of  40  different   species  helped  us  in  understanding  the  keys  in  identifying  similar  looking  fishes  in  the  wild.
 
 Then  our  Ace  photographer  Mr  Hayath  mohammed  took  the  stage,  Only  to  be  engaged  with  questions  from  the  members.  Such  was  the  interest  in  these  interactions  with  the  speakers  that  the  Lunch  time  was  postponed  from  1.00pm  to  1.30pm!  And  what  a  lunch  it  was  Drool  
 The  IAH  cake
 
 Mrs  Gayatri  Madan  Subramanian  cutting  the  cake
 
 
 The  afternoon  session  started  with  a  Central  american  Cichlids  video,  followed  by  the  "Fish  catching  for  dummies"  by  Balaji.  And  what  a  scandal  it  was.  Laid  bare  all  the  secrets  of  us  fish  chasers.  Lucky  our  spouses  were  not  around,  or  else  it  would  have  been  the  end  of  our  fish  chasing  dream  Sad  
 
 Then  came  the  talk  by  Rahul  about  my  most  favourite  fish,  The  Loaches  of  India,  and  their  identification.  As  always  simple,  precise  and  concise.  Not  much  doubts  you  will  have,  after  Rahul  has  spoken  about  a  subject.
 
 well,  That's  about  it.  We  had  a  good  interaction  among  members  on  a  personal  level  for  about  a  hour  and  left  for  the  hotel.  Not  many  pictures  by  me,  since  I  did  not  want  to  miss  any  part  of  Aquatika  2011.  
 
 Cheerio,
 
 Regards,

 While  Balaji  was  letting  out  all  the  secrets  of  fish  chasers,  the  back  benchers  silently  finished  off  the  cake.  True  to  the  saying  in  the  presentation  that  we  have  a  common  trait  -  'We  all  are  foodies'   Chuckle

 You  were  able  to  do  that  only  because  the  Gastronomical  Monster  was  absent  on  this  occasion.  Else,  you  would  have  managed  to  get  only  a  whiff  of  it  from  a  great  distance.

 Looks  immaculately  organized  event  as  always  and  glad  to  read  Aquatika  report.
