This is Thilak Raj. I'm from Madurai, stayed quiet sometime in Bangalore and now at Thiruvanandapuram.
Fish have always been there at home, since I was 8, but I have been into serious fish keeping only very recently. Till then I used to have a couple of Guppy or just a pair of gold fish.
My interests towards the hobby increased only after seeing such a vast forums and groups available in the net and the various sites with information on breeding and other stuffs. Hope to become a serious hobbyists with vast knowledge soon. :twisted: :wink:

Hello Fellow Hobbyists,
I am PK ( Pradyumna Kumar Singhania) from Kolkata. I am a businessman by profession and have been traveling a lot in the past 20 years. I am close to 40 now. My hobby had started when I was 7. Calcutta has always had LFS's all over the city and this hobby is deeply rooted into most bengali households.
Kolkata has many interesting places one can visit to actually witness the craze Calcuttans have forthis hobby, for example the Galiff Street Market..which is a Road Side, Sunday morning only Market for Plants and Pets. Fish is the major attraction, ater birds and plants. I Happened to visit this market recently, for the first time and my childhood hobby was rekindled to its maximum and in a frenzy, I set up all my dried up tanks, around 12 of them that very sunday.This was 3 months back.
Today, I have the following tanks:
a) 6' x 24" x 18"- almost 100 gallon marine tank, slowly going to become a reef tank, housing 100 lbs of Live rock, substrate, UG filter, Eheim Wet/dry filter,two MH lamps, 2 Blue actinics ( all Arcadia), A Protein Skimmer ( RedSea Prizm Pro). Live specimens that I have in this tank as of now is a Half moon angel, fire gobi, Blue Devls (3), 3 spotted damsel, Seabae, Percula (false i think), Tomato clowns, 3 varieties of anemones, two blue streak wrasses, a star fish.The Tank looks good
b) 6' x 18"x 18" Invertebrate tank, marine. Has a lone Clown Surgeon Fish thats not eating. I am trying hard with Nori, but in vain, been 10 days now. I dont know what to do, please HELP someone,if You can.
c) 4" x 30" x 30" planted freshwater tank, which has lots and lots of tetras now ( Rummy nose, Neons 50 each) and some Corydoras cats. I wish to slowly introduce some discus into this tank.
d) 36" X 12" x 12" Planted tank with thick vegetation, no co2, but natural light and a top soil layer under a layer of sand...the tank looks good to me. It has 4 Honey Gauramis and they are so happy. Since all are male, they keep making bubble nests with a hope to get a mate someday.
e) 4' X 24" x 24" Freshwater tank, with around 12 Rosy barbs, around 50 tetras, various, and 3lovely RedParrots with a sand substrate, Eheim 2217 filtration, and natural lighting. They all are so happy in there:)
I have a few more small tanks, but they have allmy favourite guppies,mollies, chiclids, swordtails and two tanks housing some discus, juveniles and babies..soon to be introduced in their large planted home.
My Hobby was on a flat scale for the last 20 years, when I had one large aquarium inmy office room,having my parrots and a few discus and silver sharks. Bad combo,but they seemd fine. They were with me for 8 years and now, they have gone out....outdoors, silver sharks died naturally i thinkand the Marine tank has taken the place indoors in my chamber.
I am happy to be a part as a newbie in this forum of IAH and i have learnt lots here and wish to keep learning and experimenting. Cheers!! Water is so fascinating....the Elixir of life:)

I'm Jennifer from Bangalore and am 27 years old. I am an amateur at fish keeping and have recently become obsessed with FISH!
I have a whole lot of male Bettas, angels, corydoras, plecos, red-finned shark, neon tetras, goldfish- comet and blackmoor, a pair of red-capped goldfish, a cichlid tank, a snail bowl, a livebearers tank- guppies, platties, swordtails and mollies, a couple of aquatic plant tubs and finally the fry tank!
I get very impulsive the moment I enter an aquarium, and simply go beserk coveting all that I lay my eyes upon. I have finally learnt to do my research before buying any fish (Kinda got tired rushing back to the vendor, every time I discovered I couldn't provide for that particular fish ). This website has helped me immensely, and carries a wealth of information.
I am looking forward to having a meaningful and interesting interaction with all you fish folk!
