 Hello  Everybody,
 I  am  Saikiran  from  Bangalore  working  as  a  consultant  in  a  media  company.
 I  have  had  this  hobby  since  my  school  days  which  was  encouraged  by  my  uncle  and  grandfather.  Since  then  it  had  been  off  and  on.  Of  course  i  do  not  possess  any  professional  knowledge  in  this  and  whatever  I  have  learned  is  through  books  and  now  through  Internet.
 Its  now  quite  amazing  to  see  a  lot  of  people  pursuing  this  interest  and  is  also  interesting  to  note  that  we  get  a  whole  lot  of  equipments  and  accessories  available  here  in  India  which  never  used  to  be  available  before.
 
 Anyways,  I  am  now  back  into  this  hobby  and  I  look  forward  to  all  the  members  out  there  to  help  me  with  their  advice  in  setting  up  a  decent  planted  aquarium,  I  do  have  one  right  now,  but  I  would  like  to  own  it  more  professionally.
 
 Looking  forward  to  you  guys.
 Cheers!!!

 Hi  all,
 
 I  am  Venkat,  working  in  SAP  Labs  India,  Bangalore.  I  have  had  this  hobby  for  a  few  years  now.  I  started  with  this  when  I  was  12  years  old,  then  had  to  discontinue  because  I  couldnt  maintain  it  properly.  Restarted  again  3  years  later  and  continued  for  about  a  year.  Had  to  discontinue  again.  
 I  have  had  the  current  set  of  fishes  for  about  a  year  now  in  a  glass  tank  of  size  20"x10"x12".  Have  just  moved  to  a  new  house  in  Whitefield  and  plan  to  have  a  bigger  aquarium.
 
 I  was  searching  for  tips  on  maintaining  an  aquarium  and  that's  how  I  found  this  website.  I  find  it  a  wonderful  place  to  get  to  know  various  things  about  fishes  and  plants.  I  have  become  more  interested  in  this  hobby  after  browsing  thru  this  website.  
 
 You  guys  are  doing  a  wonderful  job  out  here  and  hope  to  gain  more  knowledge  from  all  of  you.  Thanks  a  lot!
 
 Regards,
 Venkat.

 Hi  IAH  clan.  I  am  Dr.  Ameya  Patil,  M.B.B.S.,  currently  appearing  for  PG  exams.  I  am  24  your  old,  native  of  Mumbai  and  greatly  addicted  to  the  aquarium  hobby.
      Keeping  live  animals  in  captivity  is  not  permitted  by  my  parents  and  hence,  i  donot  own  an  aquarium  currently.  However,  during  my  years  in  medical  college,  i  maintained  three  aquariums  in  my  room  which  were  a  gr8  stressbuster  for  me  and  my  mates.  During  these  5  and  1/2  years,  I  reared  and  bred  literally  every  fish  available  in  the  local  fish  stores  and  studied  their  characteristics  and  habits  closely.  I  simulated  entire  ecosystems  in  my  aquariums.  My  favourite  fish  are  the  guppy,  the  oscar,  the  pacu,  the  piranha,  the  danio,  and  the  flowerhorn,  each,  for  different  reasons.  my  piranhas  and  fighters  were  the  star  attraction  of  my  aquariums  and  attracted  a  huge  crowd.  Live  food  was  in  plenty;  mostly  juvenile  tilapia,  pencilfish  and  rosy  barbs.  My  piranha  tank  was  rightly  named,  'the  food  chain  simulator'.   
      It  is  my  dream  to  build  a  farmhouse  with  atleast  two  room-sized  aquaria-come-swimming  pools  with  single  sided  display  and  a  koi  stream  or  pond  in  my  lawn.  I  am  currently  planning  to  build  a  9'x2'x2'  pacu  species  tank  for  my  grandparents.
      I  hope  to  be  of  some  help  to  the  IAH  clan.  Thank  you.

 Hello  IAH,
 
 Almost  3  years  after  joining  IAH,  wish  to  introduce  myself  here,  better  late  than  never.  Smile  
 
 I'm  Yogesh  from  Mumbai,  working  with  Deutsche  Bank.     
 
 I  have  been  in  this  hobby  for  the  last  18  years  but  only  last  4  years  can  be  considered  as  serious  fishkeeping.
   
 Started  with  Livebearers,  Goldfishes,  Angels,  Oscars  etc.,  goldies  remained  my  favorite  for  a  long  time.  My  interest  shifted  to  Discus  later  with  great  help  from  IAH  members,  Carey,  Neil  etc.  After  successful  discus  raising,  achieved  triumph  to  breed  blue  turq  &  red  passion  strains.  I  wish  to  mention  precious  help  from  my  better  half  to  do  daily  WC  for  my  discus  tanks.  Very Happy   Recently  I’m  much  passionate  about  predatory  fishes  though.
 
 To  conclude,  I  sincerely  appreciate  IAH  which  took  me  to  the  next  level  of  fishkeeping.
 Thank  you.
