PostPosted: Wed Feb 15, 2006 7:39 pm Post subject: Aquarium for a newbie Reply with quote

 Hi,  Just  been  bitten  by  the  bug.
 
 I  would  like  to  have  an  aquarium  at  home  on  a  partition  in  my  living  room.  Preferably  something  in  the  range  of  3-4'  in  length.  The  partition  is  about  1'  in  width.  I  would  like  suggestions  on  how  to  go  about  the  purchase  of  the  aquarium.  I  live  in  Tirupur,  close  to  Coimbatore,  so  any  help  from  around  this  area  would  be  nice.
 
 What  kind  of  thickness  should  the  glass  be?  and  what  should  I  look  out  for?
 
 Thanks,
 Suraj

 Thanks  again,
 
 Kiran  just  called  me  back  and  he  has  already  been  a  great  help.  I  guess  you  will  see  more  of  me  soon.

 Finally,  managed  to  meet  Kiran  today.  His  tanks,  the  discus,  the  tetras  were  superb.  Kiran,  your  new  planted  tank  still  lingers  in  my  mind.  And  the  rainbow  fry  were  really  miniscule.  Hope  I  get  into  the  joys  of  breeding  some  day.
 
 Nitin,  sorry  couldn't  meet  you  today  as  I  was  unduly  delayed  on  an  errand.  Will  catch  up  with  you  next  week.
 
 I  should  be  having  my  tank  next  week  sometime  and  the  fish  will  come  in  much  later.  Shall  keep  you  all  posted.
 
 Regards,

 Haven't  yet  come  to  a  conclusion,  Gokul.  Will  most  certainly  start  with  a  community  tank  -  planted.  We  (Kiran  &  I)  are  still  working  on  it  and  I  am  going  pretty  slow  to  make  sure  it  is  a  success.
 
 Not  a  very  large  tank  (2.5  x  1.5  x  1.5)  but  I  think  this  is  pretty  good  for  a  novice  like  me.
 
 Regards,

 Thats  cool...  When  you  are  here  in  Coimbatore,  just  give  me  a  call  (98433  20300).......
 
 That  would  be  a  good  size  for  starting...........  
 
 Me  too  a  novice...  just  started  the  tank  in  last  August....  but  I  have  had  fish  in  my  childhood  though  not  successful  due  to  lack  of  knowledge.....    Smile  
 
 A  planted  tank  requires  good  maintenance  and  monitoring.....  if  you  could  do  that,  then  you  would  be  succesful  for  sure.........  spening  a  few  minutes  for  the  tank  everyday  shouldn't  be  a  problem      Smile
