 Hi  Arup:
 
 Welcome  to  IAH...  Smile  
 
 Why  do  you  want  to  buy  filter  online??
 
 Most  of  us  procure  it  through  LFS...
 You  name  the  brand  and  they'll  source  it  for  you...
 
 Buying  online  may  save  you  the  upfront  cost;  but  what  about  its  safe  delivery....  handling  charges...  and  duties  (as  it'll  be  declared  as  commercial  commodity)...
 
 Bye,

 Hi  Arup
 I  agree  with  Nag.
 Most  of  the  things  you  require  can  be  procured  through  local  stores.
 Also  there  is  issue  of  after  sales  support  which  your  LFS  would  be  able  to  provide.
 Online  purchases  are  okay  for  products  of  companies  which  have  nationwide  service  centers  and  point  of  sale  does  not  matter.
 Many  large  companies  like  Haegen,  Azoo    have  local  authorised  dealers.
   Very Happy

 I  believe  in  supporting  the  local  dealer  -  The  poor  guy  is  investing  money  and  keeping  stock  of  products  for  people  like  you!  If  you  don't  support  them  whom  will  you  run  to  during  emergencies  -  of-course  your  LFS!  than  why  not  take  your  custom  with  him  and  start  a  good  relationship?  -  Believe  me,  there  is  nothing  more  important  in  the  hobby  than  finding  a  good  local  aquarium  store  if  you  find  a  good-one!  You  are  half-way  towards  success!

 thanks  guys.
 I'm  from  Kolkata.  Actually  there  is  no  dealer  of  hang  on  back  filters  in  Kolkata,  All  u  can  get  is  canisters  and  internals.  So  I  thought  about  this.

 Hi  arup,
 Since  you  are  from  Calcutta,  I  would  like  get  some  information  from  you.
 I  am  now  in  chicago  and  bought  lot  of  stuffs  online  for  planted  tank  that  i  am  gonna  setup  once  I  return  back.  I  sent  PM  to  Harsh  for  getting  some  information  about  dealer  address  in  Delhi  who  is  selling  the  filter.  He  helped  me  a  lot  by  providing  me  the  dealer's  address.  But  I  am  wondering  since  you  have  mentioned  about  the  availability  of  canister  filter  in  Calcutta,  I  would  like  to  know  the  dealer's  address  or  ph  #.  
 My  seond  query  is  related  to  CO2  tank,  do  you  have  any  idea  whether  it  is  available  in  Calcutta  or  not?  And  also  CO2  refilling  cost  if  available.
 
 Thanks  a  lot.Thumb Up

 Actually  there  is  no  dealer  in  Calcutta.  Most  of  the  sellers  get  their  products  from  Chennai  or  Bangalore.  For  Eheim  products  you'll  have  to  contact  Aquazona  at  Delhi.  So  you  can  get  a  filter  here-  but  choice  will  be  limited  and  cost  higher.  Btw  you  can  get  a  CO2  cylinder  here  and  you  can  also  get  a  Co2  refill.  Though  I'm  not  using  pressurised  Co2  right  now  -  but  it  is  available  in  Kolkata.  Amitava  is  using  it  and  there  may  also  be  other  members.

 Arup  thanks  a  lot  for  the  info.
 Actually  I  was  worried  a  bit  about  the  availability  of  CO2  tank  in  Calcutta  because  I  spent  a  lot  for  pressurized  CO2  system.
 I  will  definately  send  PM  to  Amitava  for  more  information.
 
 thanks
