 Hey  Guys,
 
 I  have  bought  an  aquarium,  now  I  am  looking  for  a  shop  in  West  Delhi  (Close  to  Rajouri  Garden)  where  I  can  buy  the  fishes  from.  Can  anyone  suggest  some  shops.
 
 Regards,
 epoch

 Epoch.....  Welcome  to  IAH.  Update  your  profile  with  Location.  What  fishes  you  are  looking  for?  Getting  good  fishes  in  a  good  rate  is  impossible  in  Delhi  and  NCR.  I  saw  a  LFS  in  RG  area  couple  of  days  before,  selling  Mollies  and  genetically  deformed  colored  Danios.  Let  me  know  what  kind  of  fishes  you  are  looking  for.  May  be  I  can  help  you  out.  
 
 P.S:  I  am  not  a  fish  dealer/LFS.   Smile

 Hey  Tirtha,
 
 Thanks  for  your  reply.
 
 I  am  a  newbie  and  don't  know  much  about  which  fishes  to  start  with.
 Searched  on  net  and  found  that  I  should  start  with  hard  species  like  shark,  tetras,  zebra  etc.
 I  am  not  sure  whether  all  these  are  available  in  India.
 
 I  have  a  75L  tank.  Which  ones  do  you  suggest  I  should  go  for.  Should  I  plant  some  live  plants  also?  Most  of  the  websites  say  we  should,  but  some  say  that  plants  are  hard  to  maintain.  
 
 regards,
 Epoch

 Epoch,  as  you  ar  a  beginner,  start  with  Molly,  Guppy,  Platy  and  Swordtails  as  of  now.  Adding  plants  are  always  better  but  as  of  now  stay  away  from  live  plants.  Share  your  tank  dimension,  substrate  as  well  as  the  Filteration  system.  So  called  Freshwater  Sharks  are  not  for  small  tank.  Then  need  a  big  tank  to  stay  happy.

 The  tank  is  in  trapezium  shape,  3ft  in  front  and  1  ft  at  the  back.  The  tank  capacity  is  75  L.  It  is  lit  by  a  CFL  light.
 
 I  am  yet  to  put  any  fishes  in  it.  I  want  to  do  some  research  b4  I  put  in  fishes.
 
 Please  suggest  the  fishes  and  live  plants  (whether  I  should  put  these  or  not)
 
 regards,
 Epoch

 The  height  of  the  tank  is  18inches.  The  hood  is  in  place.  Using  a  CFL  to  light  the  aquarium  (not  sure  about  the  wattage  of  the  CFL).
 
 The  filter  is  150  lph  filter.
 
 For  the  aquarium  bed,  I  am  using  grey  sand  (  i  have  cleaned  it  thoroughly  and  the  water  in  the  aquarium  is  clear).  Added  few  white  stones  at  to  make  the  aquarium  look  better  (the  ones  found  at  the  river  bed).
 
 Planning  to  buy  toys  too  to  give  fishes  place  to  hide  and  play...

 That  means  You  are  using  a  Sponge  Internal  Power  filter.  According  to  me  you  need  another  one  in  your  tank.  150ltr  is  not  enough  for  your  tank.  You  should  have  such  a  flowrate  where  the  total  volumn  of  water  can  be  filtered  3-4  times  in  an  hour.  And  use  double  sponge  in  the  filters.  It  will  increase  the  bacteria  colony  and  will  provide  a  better  filteration.
 
 And  while  adding  fishes,  make  sure  you  are  not  adding  a  huge  bioload  at  a  time.  Slowly  add  fishes.  To  start  with,  add  5  guppies  in  the  tank,  wait  for  3  weeks.  Keep  changing  50%  water  every  week.  By  this  time  the  tank  got  cycled.  Then  add  some  more  fishes.  wait  for  an  week  and  then  add  some  more.  But  do  not  add  more  than  20  small  fishes  in  the  tank.

 Thanks  for  the  help  Tirtha.  
 
 I  am  not  planning  to  keep  more  than  10  fishes.  Let  them  play  freely  in  the  tank.  Smile
 
 If  the  water  is  getting  filtered  3-4  times  in  an  hour,  will  it  not  create  a  strong  water  current  in  the  aquarium?
 
 Also,  some  LFS  say  that  we  should  change  the  entire  water  in  2  months  (or  as  you  said  change  50%  of  water  after  every  week),  will  that  not  remove  the  benificial  bacteria  from  the  aquarium?

 There  is  no  relation  between  banificial  Bacteria  and  weekly  water  change.  You  will  get  Bacteria  Colony  in  Filter  media  and  on  substrate.  Weekly  water  change  will  help  you  maintain  water  quality  as  well  as  your  fish  health  as  it  will  remove  extra  ammonia  and  nitrite  if  it  is  present  in  water  column.  It's  advisable  to  wash  the  filter  sponge  once  in  2  weeks  using  Tank  water  only  while  WC.  Never  ever  compare  your  home  aquarium  with  Delhi  LFS  tanks.  They  are  dumping  the  fishes  for  very  short  time  just  for  business  porpuse  but  you  are  keeping  fishes  as  your  pet,  so  your  goal  will  be  to  provide  a  proper  ealthy  home  to  your  fishes.
 
 I  will  wait  for  other  membres  also  to  see  their  choice  on  fishes  for  your  tank.
