 Dear  All
 Seeing  is  Believing!
 I  had  been  to  this  marvelous  street  in  the  year  2006  and  was  mesmerized.  
 
 It  was  pure  bliss,  the  rates  unbelievable   Surprised   .
 The  market  caters  to  the  bargainers  and  the  Sellers  mainly  concentrate  to  lure  the  Customers  to  the  'point  of  sale'  that  is  their  house  or  farm.  Once  they  know  that  you  are  a  good  buyer,  they  give  their  visiting  cards  for  you  to  visit  them.  They  bring  only  a  part  of  their  show  pieces  to  this  market,  its  like  dangling  a  carrot  .....
 
 I  spent  more  than  3-4  hours  looking  and  only  looking  since  I  could  not  carry  with  me  on  a  train  and  I  had  to  stay  for  2  more  days!
 
 I  would  love  to  visit  this  again  sometime  in  this  month  end   Very Happy

 It  is  an  amazing  market  and  worth  visiting  while  in  Calcutta.I  bought  plants  and  fish  there  a  few  months  ago.  The  plants  did  well  but  many  of  the  fish  died.If  you  want  to  go  you  should  go  early  as  I  reached  there  at  about  10am  and  was  told  that  I  was  late  and  most  of  the  good  fish  had  been  sold

 Hi  Sandipan,
 
 That  was  awesome!!  and  a  great  pity  for  me  cause  I  was  at  Kolkata  couple  of  weeks  ago  and  infact  came  back  to  Mumbai  on  sat  night  thinking  there's  nothing  much  to  do  on  a  sunday  morning!  
 
 How  does  the  commercial  work  out?  do  they  bargain  a  lot..?  the  next  time  I  am  in  Kolkata,  would  ensure  that  I  stay  back  to  visit  this  market...
 
 Once  again...Great  snaps!!

 Yes  some  time  but  I  think  their  price  is  almost  35-40%  lower  than  any  LFS  in  Kolkata.  But  to  catch  the  Goodies  you  have  to  reach  early  at  7  AM.

 You  only  get  goldfishes  and  Flower  horns  and  mollies  and  guppies  there...you  do  not  get  any  exotic  varieties  there...IMO.

 haha...you  took  it  all  wrong,  check  out  other  threads  on  Galif  street  market.  If  you  are  lucky  you  can  get  rare  stuff(various  characins,  discus,  Datnoids,  even  flounders,  etc)  for  dirt  cheap  prices  there.  Plant  stock  is  better  than  what  the  best  shop  in  Hyderabad  offers.

 Dear  Hamza
 You  are  right.  What  I  found  in  the  market  is  very  interesting.  Only  5-6  sellers  exhibit  the  exotic  one  while  90  %  are  selling  Gold,  Gouramis,  Mollies  etc.  Generally   from  June-  october(Breeding  seasons)a  lot  of  variety  come  to  the  Galif  st.  In  october  this  year  I  saw  a  live  Black  coloured  Bat  fish  (Probably  first  time  in  the  market)  cought  from  the  Sunderban  areas  displayed  for  sell  and  it  was  kept  in  Fresh  water.  Chuckle   Chuckle

 Yes,
 
 I  too  had  been  to  Galif  street...  lots  of  interesting  stuff......did  carry  a  cute  pair  of  sole  fish  for  Trevor  some  time  ago...  dont  know  if  it  has  been  tossed  into  trevors  frying  pan...
 
 The  only  difficult  part  is  that  you  need  to  have  a  good  eye  to  look  ..  if  so  you  can  find  a   lot  of  stuff...  and  7  am  is  the  time  when  all  the  exotics  get  out  after  which  its  all  the  leftovers...  did  see  a  lot  of  shopkeeps  buying  stuff  from  Galif  street  too..
 
 Moreover  i  did  not  find  the  quality  too  bad...  you  have  an  Oxygen  guy  there  too  who  can  pack  you  bag  with  Oxygen  for  2bucks..  what  more  can  you  ask  for.
 
 Regards
 Adip
