PostPosted: Thu Jan 20, 2011 1:20 am Post subject: Interesting Fish Available Locally - Bombay Reply with quote

 Hello  Guys,
 
 I  am  sure,  several  of  us  visit  our  favorite  LFS  or  one  of  the  wholesale  markets  at  least  twice  a  month  (to  buy  food  or  hardware  if  not  fish).
 
 I  wonder  if  it  will  be  interesting  to  have  a  thread  to  note  and  track  interesting  fish  available  at  stores  in  Bombay.
 
 Let  me  start  with  a  (possibly  outdated)  Stock-list  from  last  weekend:
 
 1.  Clown  Loaches  (Ocean  World,  Aqua  Planet  at  Kurla)
 2.  Datnioides  polota  (Tausif,  Aakar)
 3.  Asian  Arowanas  (Ocean  World)
 4.  Elephantnose  fish  :  Gnathonemus  petersii  (AquaPlanet)
 5.  Chitala  Chitala  (Kurla  Aquarium)***
 6.  Malawi  Cichlids  (Kurla  Aquarium)
 7.  Burundi  Frontosa  (Aqua  Planet)
 8.  Datnioides  microlepis  (Aakar)
 9.  Florida  Gar  (6")  (Lakeland)
 10.  Zebra  blenny  -  Omobranchus  zebra  (Lakeland)***  
 11.  Pack  of  4-5"  Red  Belly  Piranhas  (New  store  in  the  entrance  to  the  Golden  Plaza  blding)
 
 ***  ID  may  not  be  accurate.
 
 These  are  some  of  the  ones  I  can  remember..  I  hope  someone  who  has  visited  Crawford  Market  recently  can  list  some  interesting  fish  from  there.  
 
 (There  will  be  some  variation  in  what  people  find  "interesting",  but  with  enough  people  updating  this,  I  think  we  can  cover  everybody.)
 
 Cheers,
 Sid
 
 PS:  Don't  discuss  prices  on  this  thread.  And  if  possible,  don't  just  post  info  from  one  specific  store.  We  don't  want  this  thread  to  be  like  an  "LFS  announcement".

 Ok,  I'd  like  to  add  these  which  caught  my  attention  recently...
 Panda  Corydoras  (Bought  them),  Thread  Fin  Rainbow,  Rummy  Nose,  Neons  &  several  other  tetra  species,  Red  Sevram  @  Aakar,  Kurla
 Blue  Botia  that  looks  similar  to  clown  loach  in  one  of  the  new  shop  @  Crawford  market.
 Sidrock:  Pls  let  me  know  if  the  shops  you  listed  are  all  from  Kurla  (E)?
 Thanks!

 1.  Yes,  the  shops  listed  there  are  from  Kurla-E.
 
 2.  Did  you  buy  the  Panda  Corydoras  from  Aakar?  
 
 Total  money  I  have  spent  over  the  past  year  (fish+food+equipment)  in  now  in  several  tens-of-thousands..Almost  all  of  it  is  spent  in  Kurla  East.  However,  I  have  never  managed  to  buy  anything  from  Aakar,  as  they  have  never  given  me  good  rates  or  good  service.  
 
 Even  right  now,  after  your  update,  I  want  to  buy  the  Red  Severums.  But  if  I  try  buying  these  at  Aakar  they  will  quote  some  ridiculous  price  like  10  Thousand  for  a  pair  of  4"  Fish.  I  don't  know  if  this  is  due  to  some  misunderstanding..  something  like  I  inadvertently  gave  them  the  impression  that  I  am  hitting  on  that  lady  who  sits  there.  (I  am  going  to  refer  to  her  as  "tai"  (or  behenji)  next  time  I  am  there..  Chuckle  )
 
 Thanks  for  contributing  guys,

 Ok!
 
 2.  Did  you  buy  the  Panda  Corydoras  from  Aakar?  
 Yeah,  I  bought  it  from  Aakar!
 
 Total  money  I  have  spent  over  the  past  year  (fish+food+equipment)  in  now  in  several  tens-of-thousands..Almost  all  of  it  is  spent  in  Kurla  East.  
 I  think  I  have  that  habit  too...of  spending  too  much  on  them!
 
 However,  I  have  never  managed  to  buy  anything  from  Aakar,  as  they  have  never  given  me  good  rates  or  good  service.  
 I  do  think  that  when  you  buy  couple  of  fishes  they  do  charge  u  more  than  the  LFS  &  the  wholesale  price  is  also  comparatively  more  than  other  LFS  there...but  the  collection  that  they  usually  have  is  good  as  far  as  I  can  make  out...especially  you'll  find  tetra  varieties  which  are  not  commonly  found  in  other  LFS...&  also  I  have  noticed  that  they  give  priority  to  the  people  whom  they  know,  the  retailers  who  often  buy  from  them.
 
 Even  right  now,  after  your  update,  I  want  to  buy  the  Red  Severums.  But  if  I  try  buying  these  at  Aakar  they  will  quote  some  ridiculous  price  like  10  Thousand  for  a  pair  of  4"  Fish.  I  don't  know  if  this  is  due  to  some  misunderstanding..  something  like  I  inadvertently  gave  them  the  impression  that  I  am  hitting  on  that  lady  who  sits  there.  (I  am  going  to  refer  to  her  as  "tai"  (or  behenji)  next  time  I  am  there..  Chuckle  )
 Ok,  I  sort  of  get  what  you  mean,  even  I  am  a  bit  hesitant  to  buy  from  there...but  sometimes  I  just  can't  help  it  Smile

 worlimen                

 
 Thanks!
 
 The  ones  I  saw  in  Pisces  were  Sailfin  Pleco  (Glyptoperichthys  gibbicep)  and  A.  adonis  (or  so  I  think).  I  was  considering  buying  the  Adonis  or  some  Bichirs  my  "New  Year's  Gift"..  I  got  the  Bichirs  (1  Endli  and  2  Delhezis)
 
 They  also  have  EBJD,  but  I  was  not  entirely  sure  of  the  quality.
 
 Cheers,
 Sid
 
 PS:  Can  someone  ping  me  the  price  of  a  3-4"  Red  Severum?

 Apart  from  all  the  things  mentioned  above  there  are  lots  of  Royal  plecos,  Panda  whiptails  and  long-nose  shrimps  at  Pisces.
 The  last  piece  of  A.  adonis  is  gone.

 Hi  guys,
 
 I  had  gone  to  Kurla  today  to  get  some  equipment  and  food...  
 
 1.  Several  shops  have  a  LOT  of  decent  sized  Piranhas..  
 
 2.  There  is  some  repair-work  going  on  in  Kurla  Aquarium  (which  has  some  of  the  best  Malawi  cichlids  in  that  market).
 
 3.  There  are  also  some  places  with  Etroplus  suratensis  (The  LFS  guys  are  calling  them  "Green  Severums")
 
 4.  The  shop  on  the  main-road  (Utkarsh)  seems  to  have  gotten  a  LOT  more  Marine  stock  than  usual.  I  am  not  good  at  IDing  Marine  fish,  but  if  anyone  is  interested,  you  can  take  a  peek.
 
 5.  Ocean  World  has  Elephantnose  and  Clown  loaches  (and  also  awesome  looking  Flower  Horns  if  you're  into  that  stuff..).
 
 6.  Datnoidies  Polota  were  not  seen  anywhere  I  went.
 
 7.  I  usually  also  checkout  Lakeland  (but  it  was  closed  for  some  reason,  maybe  lunch)..  
 
 8.  I  had  a  good  time  shopping  (i.e.  got  good  rates  and  great/polite  service)   for  power-filters,  sponge  filters  and  various  types  of  Hikari  Cichlid  food...  So,  I  didn't  want  to  break  that  nice  streak  by  checking  out  Aakar.
