 Hi!  
 I'm  Aditi,  A  Civil  Engineer  based  at  Kolkata.  It  was  actually  my  son's  wish  to  have  an  aqurium.  So  I  decided  to  present  him  one  as  his  5th  birthday  gift  and  now  I'm  in  love  with  planted  tanks  Thumbs Up  .   I  have  only  one  tank   (42"l  x  10"w  x  15"h)  running  5  months  with  a  very  low  technology.  some  amazon,  bacopa,  valls,  crypt,  pearl  grass,  hygro  were  my  initial  plants.  Rana  helped  me  with  some  hair  grass  &  HC,  they  are  also  thriving.  24  neon  tetras,  10  blood  fin  tetras,  5  guppies  &  4  mollies  with  3  fry  are  the  tank  dwellers.

 Hi  Matthew
 
 Good  to  see  you  here.  I  believe  you  must  be  among  the  youngest  here.
 
 I  had  started  keeping  fish  when  I  was  in  class  eight.  And  it  is  still  going  strong.
 
 Do  keep  posting.

 Hi  All,
 
 My  name  is  Surya  Narayanan.  I'm  currently  working  as  a  Corporate  Trainer  for  a  BPO  company.  I  love  pets  and  always  had  them.  Since  I  moved  to  a  new  place,  had  no  provision  to  keep  few  .So  never  the  less  started  with  wet  pets  last  year.  As  a  beginner  got  ripped  and  conned  by  most  of  the  LFS  guys.  Got  introduced  to  IAH  by  my  boss  Shankar  which  I  think  was  the  best  thing  that  happened  to  me!
  I  want  to  thank  all  the  IAH  members  who  have  been  very  supportive  and  with  no  bias  shared  their  experience  which  really  helped  me  to  keep  my  fellows  happy.  Would  specially  like  to  thank  Shankar,  who  introduced  me  to  the  new  world  called  IAH
 
 Irshad:   He  explained  the  entire  process  of  setting  up  a  planted  tank  which  helped  me  a  lot  in  setting  my  own.   Got  the  best  pets  and  plants  from  him.  I  am  sure  most  new  beginners  would  require  a  a  mentor  and  that  mentor  could  be  none  other  than  you  and  Deepak
 
 Deepak  Brid:  Mater  arts  man.  Would  like  to  thank  him  for  the  light  setup,  I  got  from  him  and  his  wife  for  her  kind  hospitality.  Deepak  not  only  shared  his  views  but  was  patient  in  explaining  the  minute  details  of  water  chemistry  that  is  very  important  to  keep  the  wet  pets  happy  and  active.  And  of  course  few  good  plants  too
    Currently  I  have  2  tanks.  One  is  planted  (3’*18”*18”)  with  metal  halide,  homemade  recipe  of  co2  (will  soon  set  a  pressurized  one)  and  HOB  800L/hr  dolphin  filter.  Residents  are  variety  of  tetras,  corries,  loaches,  and  rosy  barbs  which  I  got  from  Dinakar.  Thank  you  Dinakar,  they  have  great  color  and  look  great.  And  the  second  is  a  cichlid  tank(2.5’*15”*15”)  with  a  pair  of  electric  blue  peacock  which  I  got  from  Adip(  Thank  you  for  the  beautiful  pair),  1  front,  1  upside  down  cat,  1  synodontis  cat,  2  eels,  and  2  cray  fish  which  I  got  from  Irshad.   
 Planted  Aquarium  is  just  a  month  and  half  old.  
   
 Sorry  for  picturing  my  tank  under  this  thread.  I’m  doing  this  to  tell  every  IAH  member  that  this  is  not  my  hord  work  but  is  yours.  Thank  you  member  and  thank  you  Irshad  and  Deepak  .
 God  Bless  you  Guys  and  Your  Families,
 Regards,
 Surya.

 Hi  Everyone
 
 I  am  Vyas  ,  From  Coimbatore..  Now  in  Blore  for  the  past  4  years..
 I  have  been  keeping  fish  on  and  off  ever  since  I  can  remember..  Never  realised  there  was  so  much  of  science  involved  till  about  6  months  back  .
 
 I  have  3  Tanks  1*X50G  Cichlid  Tank  with  Texas/Firemouths/Convicts/Mbunas/Jewels/Plecos
 
 I  was  then  bitten  by  the  planted  tank  bug  after  i  saw  the  2006  AGA  tournament..
 Was  hasty  in  setting  up  my  first  planted  tank  
 a  50  G  Tank  30"  Height  ..so  the  light  has  rather  low  penetration  Sad  
 Houses  a  few  tetras  and  rainbows
 
 Now  experimenting  or  rather  learning  with  a  ~20G  Planted.  ..This  one  holds  mostly  cory  cats
 
 Both  planteds  having  DIY  CO2  would  start  fertlizing  soon
 
 I  am  now  hooked  on  to  IAH  almost  all  the  hours  I  am  awake...reading  and  reading  and  reading  ...  The  Hobby  is  worse  than  all  the  addictions  that  i  have  been  a  member  of  !!!!!   Surprised  
 
 Once  I  am  more  confident  that  the  next  time  would  not  be  disastrous  I  hope  to  have  a  100G  Planted  Tank...Pending  Home  minister's  approval   Shocked  
 
 It  is  really  wonderful  to  have  this  forum  esp  for  India  aquarists.  Esp  since  there  is  very  few  LFS  which  are  good  source  for  info
 
 I  would  post  some  pics  of  my  tank  once  they  are  a  bit  presentable   Smile  
 
 Thanks  and  regards
 Vyas  T  K
