 Hi  all,  just  wanted  to  check  whether  there  would  be  any  interest  from  this  forum  in  setting  up  a  Kaveri  biotope  aquarium  next  to  the  Kaveri  river  (actually  at  the  Bheemeshwari  Jungle  lodge  resort).   If  there  is  sufficient  interest  then  I  can  take  this  idea  forward  with  the  Jungle  lodges  office  and  manager.
 My  idea  would  be  for  3-4  of  us  to  construct  the  tank  onsite  and  populate  directly  from  the  river.   I  may  be  able  to  get  support  in  terms  of  the  Jungle  lodges  office  giving  us  accomodation  and  food  at  the  resort  for  our  work  in  setting  up  the  tank  :-)

 I  think  Sudang  wants  to  setup  the  tank  at  Bheemeshwari  Jungle  lodge  resort,  Sudang  you  need  to  be  clear  if  this  is  a  commercial  venture  or  is  this  something  you  are  doing  out  of  your  intrest.

 Well,  I  feel  this  is  a  venture  in  a  commercial  place.
 
 The  interest  should  not  be  coming  from  our  side  first.  Let  Jungle  lodges  first  decide  if  they  do  want  a  biotope  aquarium  in  their  place.  Come  back  to  us  with  their  interest.  
 
 What  would  they  want  us  for  -  the  actual  labour  ?  and  we  get  accommodation  and  food  for  that?  
 
 Yes,  IAHians  would  surely  be  interested,  ask  Jungle  Lodges  to  provide  accomodation  and  food  to  all  participants  of  Aquatika  2009,  we'll  hold  Aquatika  at  Bheemeshwari  Jungle  Lodges  Resort  and  we'll  gladly  setup  a  tank  for  them  over  2  days.

 Whoa.....I  guess  I  need  to  explain  the  main  thought  process  and  the  background  here  before  people  go  off  on  a  tangent  and  assume  things....
 
 Background  -  Sometime  ago  I  had  a  discussion  with  the  JLR  manager  and  suggested  to  him  that  he  puts  up  an  aquarium  containing  only  fish  from  the  Kaveri  and  setup  a  tank  with  everything  from  the  river  -  practically  a  slice  of  the  Kaveri  for  visitors  to  have  a  look  at  and  appreciate  the  beauty  of  Kaveri  specific  flora  and  fauna.   He  was  very  keen  on  the  idea  but  didnt  know  how  to  go  about  it.   He  was  willing  to  fund  it  at  that  point  in  time.
 
 Now  -  I  have  been  back  in  the  hobby  after  a  bit  of  a  break  and  would  like  to  take  up  this  project  -  Definitely  not  for  Commercial  reasons  -  I  have  nothing  to  do  with  Aquariums  commercially.
 
 I  just  suggested  that  IAHians  may  be  the  best  folks  to  take  up  this  project  out  of  sheer  interest.   I  definitely  dont  have  the  Native  fish  knowledge  that  will  be  helpful.
 
 So  the  motives  are  fairly  simple  folks....if  I  get  3  volunteers  -  I  will  discuss  with  JLR  management  and  figure  out  the  best  time  to  do  this  -  I  am  sure  that  they  will  be  willing  to  give  us  boarding  and  lodging  for  2  days  which  is  how  long  I  think  this  project  will  take.   My  guess  -  leave  early  AM  -  Day  1  -  and  return  post  breakfast  Day  3.

 My  dear  Sudang,
 
 What  fish  and  in  what  size  aquarium  do  you  have  in  Mind?
 
 Cauvery  specific  flora  and  fauna  all  in  one  tank?  The  Fauna  can  survive  in  the  Cauvery,  the  predators  will  rule  the  tank.

 Mayur,  Nayak  and  myself  are  ready  for  this  project.  Just  let  us  know  when  we  have  to  leave.  Thumb Up
 First  a  recee  trip  to  get  an  idea  of  the  size  and  then  the  location  where  we  could  place  the  tank.  There  is  no  free  place  there  from  what  I  recollect  for  a  8'  x  2'  x  2'  tank.  
 Then  we  estimate  the  budget  and  give  them  a  break  up.  This  will  run  on  actual  cost.

 Hi  Sudhir,  
 
 Sorry  for  the  offbeat  initial  reply,  so  many  hairbrained  schemes  crop  up  here,  I  thought  this  was  another  one.  Chuckle  
 
 Now  that  I  know  who  you  are,  have  fun  with  these  three  guys.

 I  guess  you  are  aware  that  someone  has  to  maintain  the  tank  regularly.   Thumb Up

 Could  plan  a  slow  water  trickle  out  from  the  aquarium  and  back  into  the  river.  That  would  solve  most  of  the  maintainence  hassles  and  also  keep  the  fish  happy.  The  water  the  guests  etc  use  is  not  chlorinated  and  is  pumped  up  from  the  river  some  feet  away.
 
 May  have  to  do  a  few  tanks  if  we  want  to  put  in  the  full  range  of  fauna.  eg  the  smallest  fish  like  the  gambusia  and  the  killies  in  one  tank  the  small  barbs  in  another  and  so  on.
