 Since  I  was  a  little  kid,  I  was  VERY  interested  in  going  fishing.  Living  right  next  to  a  stream  with  abundant  fish  was  more  of  a  blessing  for  me.  I  was  told  my  grandfather  was  very  interested  in  fish  as  well,  so  I  guess  it  got  into  my  blood  as  well  Razz  I  used  to  keep  most  fish  I  caught  in  concrete  ponds  at  my  house.  But  while  in  India,  i  never  got  a  chance  to  buy  an  aquarium  since  my  parents  thought  it  was  just  a  waste  of  money.  Cant  blame  them  since  I  was  just  a  little  kid  back  then  and  i  dont  think  i'd  have  taken  care  of  it  well  :P
 
 Once  I  moved  to  united  states  and  moved  in  our  own  house,  I  got  my  first  Aquarium,  a  20g  fish  tank.  Just  like  99%  of  other  newbies,  i  started  out  with  goldfish.  
 
 
 
 then  when  all  of  them  died  from  ich,  i  moved  on  to  african  cichlids...
 
 
 After  a  year  of  keeping  them,  I  had  to  come  back  to  India  for  vacation.  I  thought  rather  than  worrying  about  them,  I'll  just  sell  them  and  start  up  again  once  I  get  back.  And  so  I  did.  When  i  went  back  to  get  some  africans,  this  guy  caught  my  eye.
 
 
 He  and  his  tankmates  were  moved  into  a  new  20  gallon  and  the  old  tank  was  used  for  guppies.
 
 
 guppytank
 
 
 
 When  the  guys  grew  up,  i  moved  them  to  a  55  gallon.
 
 
 
 
 
 The  other  20g  became  an  oscar  growout  tank
 
 
 I  sold  all  the  guppies  in  the  old  20g  and  got  one  of  my  all  time  favs
 fire  eel
 
 
 I  knew  it  was  coming  and  finally  it  was  time  to  upgrade  my  oscar  tank.  The  albino  i  first  bought  died  from  territorial  violence.  But  i  got  a  60  gallon  tank  and  moved  the  lone  tiger  into  his  new  tank.  After  i  moved  him,  i  rescued  2  others  from  a  local  hobbyist  who  kept  them  in  a  10g  and  was  close  to  dying.  After  a  few  months,  i  got  them  back  into  shape.  Sorry  for  the  dirty  tank,  pic  was  taken  right  before  i  cleaned  it.  The  one  to  the  left,  under  the  albino  is  my  original  oscar.
 
 
 Eventually  I  got  the  planted  tank  itch  and  sold  my  oscars  to  setup  my  first  official  planted  tank  (i  had  a  20g  planted  before  with  some  watersprite  and  sand  substrate)  A  few  months  into  the  planted  tank.  I'll  make  a  separate  thread,  just  about  the  planted  tank.
 
 
 recently  I  bought  another  one  of  my  favs  to  give  company  to  my  fire  eel
 a  Tire  track  eel
 
 these  guys  are  native  to  Kerala  i  believe.
 
 Then  in  my  55g,  the  salvini  and  venustus  were  sold  and  i  got  a  couple  bala  sharks,  silver  dollar,  suncatfish(kerala  native)  and  a  chocolate  cichlid.
 
 
 
 As  you  can  see,  after  alot  of  selling  and  buying  this  in  my  current  livestock.
 60g  planted
 5  kuhli  loaches
 5  bristlenose  pleco
 4  bleeding  heart  tetra
 3  emerald  cories
 2  serpae  tetra
 
 55  gallon  overstocked  -_-
 2  Blood  parrots
 2  bala  sharks
 1  suncatfish
 1  senegal  bichir
 1  brown  knife
 1  silver  dollar
 1  chocolate  cichlid
 1  albino  sailfin  pleco
 1  joseliamanus  pleco
 
 20  gallon  eel  growout
 1  fire  eel
 1  tire  track  eel
 1  Id  shark
 
 10  gallon  planted  shrimp
 about  10  cherry  shrimp
 
 I  hope  i  didnt  bore  anyone  with  such  a  long  post.
