PostPosted: Sun May 13, 2007 11:10 pm Post subject: Setting a new aquarium in Chennai Reply with quote

 Hello  all,
 
 I  am  originally  from  Chennai  and  currently  live  in  US.  I  am  planning  to  setup  a  fresh  water  tank  at  my  home  in  Chennai.   I  need  some  guidance  in  setting  up  an  aquarium.
 
 I  have  18  months  old  marine  setup  here  at  my  home  in  US,  so  I  have  some  experience  in  aquariums.   What  I  want  to  know  is  how  to  go  about  in  Chennai.  Here  are  some  of  my  questions  to  begin  with.
 
 1.  I  will  be  in  Chennai  in  June  for  two  weeks.  What  are  some  good  shops  in  Chennai  to  shop  for  tanks.  Can  I  get  some  information  online?  I  am  looking  for  atleast  55  gallons  corner  tank.  I  would  like  to  get  quote  before  coming  there,  so  I  can  plan  ahead.
 2.  I  am  thinking  of  setting  up  a  Fresh  water  community  tank.  What  kind  of  fish  can  I  keep  successfully  in  Chennai.
 3.  I  will  be  setting  up  the  system  myself  and  my  brother  will  be  taking  care  of  it.  So  I  would  like  to  setup  a  completely  maitenance  free  setup.  Any  tips  and  suggestions  to  that  end  will  be  appreciated.
 4.  What  kind  of  things  that  I  can  get  from  US  to  kick  start  my  system?  
 
 I  appreciate  your  help.
 
 Thanks  All,
 Arvind.

 Hi  Aravind,
 
 Welcome  to  IAH.
 
 Item  2  in  the  list  -  Freshwater  community  tank  -  What  fish  would  you  like  to  keep?  Cichlids,  Livebearers,  goldfish  etc?  -  Just  curious.
 
 You'll  get  a  better  response  to  all  your  questions  on  the  morrow  -  weekends  are  sluggish  on  IAH.  Very Happy

 I  recently  had  a  tank  made  up  by  one  of  the  LFS  guy  from  Anna  Nagar.
 
 4  feet  in  length,  2  feet  in  height,  1.5  feet  in  depth.
 
 It  totally  costed  me  8000  with  hood,  stand  and  undergravel  filter  with  20  kgs  of  polished  gravel.
 
 It  would  be  still  cheaper  if  you  step  out  to  buy  the  glass.
 
 The  guy's  name  is  srini  and  his  number  is  9840927144.  You  can  call  me  if  you  need  any  help.
 
 Let  me  know  your  location  and  i  can  suggest  few  shops  for  you  to  visit.

 Hi  Prem,
 
 Thanks  for  the  heads  up.  I  will  have  my  brother  call  the  LFS  guy.
 
 Also,  the  type  of  tank  I  have  in  mind  is  a  corner  aquarium.  Something  like  this:
 
 http://www.aquariumsource.com/skin1/images/details_cabinetry_4.jpg
 
 Ideal  size  would  be  30X30X24.
 
 Can  these  guys  make  bowfront  aquarium  that  are  made  to  order?  I  will  check  with  him  anyways,  but  I  want  to  know  how  reliable  these  tanks  that  are  made  according  to  own  own  specifications.  Also  I  want  the  tanks  to  be  drilled  in  the  bottom  so  I  can  hook  up  a  canister  filter  in  the  cabinet.  
 
 Do  let  me  know  some  good  shops  to  visit  around  West  Mambalam  area  if  you  know  any.
 
 Thanks  for  your  help.

 Hi  Arvind,
 
 Welcome  to  IAH.
 The  picture  has  given  by  you  is  a  Moulded  Corner  Tank  &  I  am  sure  none  of  any  LFS  guy  in  chennai  can  make  it.  They  can  make  Triangular  Shape  Aquarium.  Smile

 welcome  to  IAH.  Why  dont  you  speak  to  golden  aquarium  in  chennai  -  his  numbers  are  in  the  LFS  section.  he  gave  me  a  good  deal.  
 
 I  would  reccomend  a  FW  tank,  there  are  a  lot  of  Marine  enthusiasts  in  Madras  but  i  think  the  summer  heat  gives  them  a  tough  time.  If  you  do  need  any  more  help  do  feel  free  to  contact  me.
 
 There  was  a  thread  started  by  sandeep  raghuvanshi  on  aquarium  budgets  search  for  it  in  the  archives.  it  will  be  usefull.

 Imported  ready  made  bow  front  tanks  are  available  @  your  place,  but  no  LFS  guy  can  make  it  over  your  place.  You  have  to  go  for  ready  made  corner  tank  &  the  size  will  not  be  more  than  4'

 moulded  tanks  are  incredibly  expensive  since  most  of  them  are  imported.  i  came  across  a  10  gallon  rectangular  tank  with  the  edges  on  the  front  rounded  and  it  was  about  five  times  that  of  a  plain  ten  gallon  tank!  and  the  bigger  you  go  the  more  expensive  you  get!  
 
 btw,  am  i  wrong  or  are  you  one  of  a  rare  breed  who  got  into  the  hobby  by  keeping  marine  fish  as  opposed  to  fw?  as  somebody  already  mentioned,  chennai  wouldnt  be  a  good  place  for  keeping  marine  fish.  it  just  gets  far  too  hot,  even  for  some  freshwater  fish.
