 Congratulations  and  thank  you  to  all  those  behind  this.  A  brilliant  job………indeed.
 
 In  all  my  8  or  9  years  of  surfing  the  net  for  information  on  fish  keeping,  this  is  the  only  site  I  have  come  across  so  far  for  Indian  aquarists  by  Indian  aquarists  and  more  importantly  a  site  of  quality.  I  cannot  tell  you  how  delighted  I  was  when  I  quite  accidentally  came  across  this  site.
 
 I  am  from  Kerala  but  presently  live  &  work  in  Dubai,  UAE.  Actually  after  wandering  around  the  site,  especially  the  forums,  I  wished  I  were  back  home  so  that  I  could  get  serious  about  my  hobby.  Out  here  I  have  not  been  able  to  due  to  the  demands  of  my  job,  space,  climatic  conditions  here  &  cost  constraints…and  of  course  the  struggle  to  make  ends  meet.
 
 From  the  time  I  can  remember  I  have  always  been  around  fishes,  aquariums  and  other  pets.  I  have  always  had  an  aquarium  at  home  both  in  Kerala  and  here  in  Dubai.  Although  I  have  been  keeping  fishes  for  a  long  time  now,  it  was  just  that…..a  couple  of  fishes  in  a  tank.  I  had  no  idea  whatsoever  about  the  science  behind  it  all.  
 
 It  was  after  I  came  to  Dubai  and  started  surfing  the  net  that  I  gained  much  of  the  knowledge  about  this  beautiful  hobby.  Some  day  I  will  put  that  knowledge  to  practice.  In  the  mean  time  I  plan  to  gather  as  much  information  as  I  possibly  can  form  you  knowledgeable  people  in  here.  
 
 Keep  up  the  brilliant  work…..
 
 Tetraman….  :lol:

 Truth  is  due  to  various  constraints  I  have  not  been  able  to  pursue  my  hobby  the  way  I  want  to.  So  I  am  not  so  sure  how  widespread  this  hobby  is  out  here.
 
 Whatever  little  I  know  suggests  its  not  a  very  popular  one  yet.  Its  mostly  the  expatriates  who  are  into  it.  In  fact  I  bought  my  aquarium  from  an  American  gentleman  who  was  leaving  the  country  for  good.  I  am  yet  to  meet  anybody  who  is  seriously  into  this  hobby.  In  the  9  years  being  here  I  can  remember  reading  only  about  4  articles  about  this  hobby  in  local  newspapers  or  magazines.  There  are  no  aquarium  clubs  here  or  anywhere  in  the  UAE.  I  searched  the  net  but  found  nothing  specific  to  Dubai.  There  are  about  10  to  12  pet  shops  in  Dubai  out  of  which  3  or  4  of  them  do  stock  some  good  varieties  of  ornamental  fish,  however  they  have  very  little  knowledge  about  the  fishes  they  sell.    I  have  seen  some  ill  maintained  aquariums  in  some  restaurants,  hotels  and  shopping  malls.
 
 I  know  a  couple  of  my  colleagues  have  a  small  aquarium  in  their  rooms.  I  try  to  persuade  people  to  take  up  this  hobby  and  actually  managed  to  get  one  of  my  good  friends  to  get  into  this  hobby.  We  initially  got  a  small  aquarium  and  I  set  it  up  for  him.  Now  he’s  caught  the  bug  and  we  recently  build  an  all  glass  4  footer.
 
 Perhaps  there  are  hobbyists  out  there.  May  be  I  should  put  in  a  little  more  effort  and  try  and  find  them.  If  you  know  of  anybody  or  any  of  you  coming  over  to  Dubai  let  me  know.
