 Hey
 
 IMO  2*1.5*1.5  is  not  good  enough  to  hold  9  Gold  Fish,  even  if  you  consider  that  you  will  be  going  in  for  small  golds,  they  will  grow  quite  big.  I  would  suggest  go  in  for  a  3*1.5*1.5  (All  in  Inches).
 
 Where  are  you  located  in  Bangalore?  Based  on  that  you  can  get  a  contact.
 
 Filter,  the  best  one  you  can  go  for  is  an  Eheim  External  Canister  filter,  but  this  is  quite  heavy  on  the  pocket,  so  that  would  be  upto  you  to  decide.
 
 Airpump,  Just  go  in  for  a  Heavy  Duty  Air  Pump.

 A  3  inch  tank  can  hold  only  one  goldfish.
 
 A  3  ft  by  1.5  ft  by  1.5  ft  may  be  ok,  but  if  you  really  want  this  to  be  a  long  lasting  setup,  I  would  suggest  a  4  ft  by  1.5  ft  by  1.5  ft.
 
 Start  with  some  good  healthy  fishes,  so  you  wont  have  mortalities,  because  the  fish  came  in  sick.
 
 I  would  suggest  an  Eheim  2217  filter  for  this  setup.  Eheims  are  very  good  quality  filters,  and  also  come  with  warranty.
 
 You  would  need  to  do  weekly  changes  and  also  make  sure  you  vacuum  the  gravel.  If  you  can  do  a  good  job  on  the  gravel,  I  would  also  suggest  an  UGF,  powered  by  powerheads  on  2  corners.
 
 Make  sure  you  feed  your  goldfish  with  some  good  qualtiy  feed,  and  also  DIY  feed,  as  treats!
 
 A  bigger  tank  will  ensure  that  your  fishes  get  their  space,  and  your  fishes  will  grow  well.
 
 Hope  that  helps.

 You  can  get  the  tank  made  with  
 Shabbir  -  9845959793
 Karthik  -  9886500878
 Both  make  tanks  well.  Ask  around  in  a  few  shops  first  so  you'll  get  a  rough  idea  of  price.
 
 You  can  get  an  Eheim  filter  from  
 Nitin  -  posted  above.
 Mayur/Adip   -  iah  id  :  mayurdev/aquadip2000.
 Deepak  ;  iah  id  :  Aquadeep
 
 Give  me  a  call  if  you  need  any  help.

 Sorry  Zahida,  
 I  was  replying  to  newfish'  post.  This  is  from  Bangalore.  I  would  suggest  you  start  a  new  thread  in  the  new  members  forum  and  update  your  profile.  
 Some  of  the  mumbai  guys  should  be  along  eventually.
 
 And  Welcome  to  IAH!!  Smile
