 I  had  been  to  the  Aqua  Show  2005  at  Kochi.
 It  was  fairly  decent.  Had  more  in  for  freshwater  fish,  Even  though  there  were  quite  a  few  marine  set  ups  except  for  Amity  no  one  was  selling.
 The  CMFRI  and  the  Lakshwadeep  pavillions  had  the  most  impressive  collection  of  marine  fish.
 But  the  bonus  for  me  was  that  i  got  to  meet  our  newest  member  Mr.  Troy  from  Kollam.  The  most  unassuming  guy  but  a  store  house  of  knowledge  on  anything  marine.  He  was  extremely  helpful  in  sourcing  some  live  stock  for  me  using  his  hefty  influence  among  the  exhibitors.  Truly  a  gem  of  a  person.
 As  the  place  was  packed  with  people  joustling  for  position  it  was  very  hard  for  me  to  take  some  decent  snaps.  Anyway  ive  uploaded  quite  a  few  of  them  in  the  user  gallery  under  my  name  (pcjacob)
 Here  is  the  first  one.
 I  will  soon  put  up  some  more  photos  of  my  tank  after  the  new  live  rock  has  gone  in.

 It  is  so  ice  to  know  that  there  are  quite  a  few  ppl  in  Kerala  with  marine  tanks.
 I  am  from  Cochin,  but  now  in  far  away  Africa.  I  will  come  back  in  2-5  years.
 In  maintaining  a  marine  tank,  two  important  aspects  are  light  and  temperature.  As  you  all  know  both  require  enormous  electricity  consumption    Crying or Very sad  The  still  fickle  electricity  supply  is  a  big  problem.  Sad  
 I  was  thinking  of  putting  a  skylight  above  the  tank  so  that  natural  sunlight  filters  in.  But  there  is  always  the  danger  of  over  lighting.  maybe  we  can  put  some  filter  to  reduce  it  to  the  right  level.  This  will  be  important  for  me  as  I  am  planning  a  DEEP  tank.  The  light  must  be  adequate  on  the  lower  reaches.
 Then  comes  the  issue  of  cooling.  As  we  know  Kerala  is  HOT    Sad    I  am  maintaining  the  temp  at  26  degrees  with  great  difficulty  with  two  exhaust  fans.  But  when  the  big  tank  takes  shape  that  is  going  to  be  a  big  problem.  
 This  is  all  the  more  so  because  I  am  planning  a  reef  with  fishes  tank.
 Any  ideas?  Would  like  to  hook  up  with  ppl  in  planning  this  mega  venture    Thumbs Up  
 I  will  also  need  livestock  suppliers.  Amity  was  a  source  earlier.  But  they  have  closed  shop  in  kochi  is  what  I  hear.  Otherwise  we  will  have  to  personally  go  to  Lakshadwip.  Sad    But  then  the  problem  of  wild  caught  specimens  will  be  there.  I  am  told  that  there  is  someone  in  Chennai.  I  am  not  sure.  I  know  Mathew  of  Bombay  a  reliable  and  good  man.  But  I  have  not  had  much  dealings  with  him  yet.  Maybe  when  I  am  back.

 Hi  there,
 Well  i  thinks  its  relatively  easy  to  set  up  a  marine  aquarium  in  Kerala.  There  are  enough  and  more  knowledgable  persons  like  Troy  around  here.  Just  need  to  hook  up  with  them.
 As  for  lighting,  there  shouldnt  be  any  issues.  Imported  self  contained  hoods  (MH  bulbs+ballast,  plus  tubes  and  choke)  are  avaialble  with  the  likes  of  Humsa  of  Marvel  Aquariums  Kochi.  The  heat  though  will  be  an  issue  for  corrals.  And  i  think  the  only  efficient  way  you  can  bring  the  temperatures  down  are  by  means  of  a  chiller.  The  fans  only  do  marginal  work  to  bring  atmospheric  temperatures  down,  though  they  might  aid  in  reducing  heat  generated  from  the  MH  bulbs.
 Ive  kept  a  fish  only  tank  and  it  has  survived  last  summers  heat  with  no  problems  and  beleive  me  last  summer  was  pretty  harsh  in  kerala.

 Dear  Prash,
 
 The  show  this  year  at  Cochin  wasn't  that  impressive  like  that  of  2005.  May  be  the  firsttimer  would  find  it  very  interesting.  I  signed  off  in  just  half  a  day  and  went  off  for  sight  seeing  and  was  fortunate  enough  to  see  a  few  dolphins  from  a  close  distance  near  the  '  Chinese  Fishing  '  area,  where  the  sea  water  enters  the  port.
 
 I  guess  Nytyn  too  did  not  seem  to  be  impressive,  as  he  was  avoiding  the  queues  and  simply  skipping  the  stalls.  Smile  Am  i  wrong  Nytyn?
