New pics comin' up soon.
I just got a new tank soon and am busy setting it up. Wish i had gotten it sooner, would've cycled it and kept it ready for the trips catch.
I have barbs in mind this time, and spiny eels and more killies.
update on the badis - they're all doing great, eating well and showing plenty of colour, as far as i can see there are 4 males and 3 females, but at this size i'm not sure.
I've kept one trio consisting of the largest male and two females in a 2x1x1 native tank, and the other three in another 2x1x1, both are well planted, plenty of hiding spots, they share both tanks with Hara cats, killies, Esomus and shrimps.
You guys only keep talking! Don't do anything!
Bangalore guys meet every Sunday, go on 3 collection trips in a month.
We have been meeting every Sunday for over a decade now.
You only keep dreaming and posting about it on IAH.
Very well said! Keep it up!
A very sincere reply from a Maestro!
Let me tell you one one thing for above: We don't have any proper team mates for anything.
You always have the option of going solo. There's always a jungle out there, go...take some pics and get back. If you don't have a camera just as me, just go there ID some of the fishes and post a thread. Later you should be having a few companions buzzing around.

"One man Army" is not applicable everywhere.
In Kolkata you will have lots of senior aquarists with a huge practical fishkeeping knowledge. But no one will be there to take the initiative or resposibility. Just take an example of my Planted Tank Event and you will get the answer.
How the thread started and how badly it was ended!
And unless we get a group of eshtablished like minded people arround, it's not possible to go for something permanent like a hobbiest club. In West Bengal Student power is the biggest power, but they all will be scattered within years. If there were only a handfull students, was it possible to start ASK?? You are the better person to tell me how to proceed..
