Nautilus in bandra west is decent for plants and exotic fish/shrimp but plants need to ordered in advance i believe. Other than that, there's the wholesale markets at kurla and crawford (south bombay) but only for fish. Just don't keep your expectations too high in Bombay.

Senthil compared to Chennai i think Bombay is a few steps back in term of fish and plants. As Sid said dont have your hopes up. Kurla (west) nehru nagar has a wholesale market but you'd be lucky to get something nice. Nautilus also has decent stock but call up and find out before wasting you time.

It's very easy to pull out address's of random fish stores from the internet but i doubt this chap has personally been to any of the above stores. BOMBAY does get decent livestock from time to time, it just has to be your lucky day. In BOMBAY, for shrimp and plants Nautilus is your best bet. and fish it's KURLA.

Yes I have been to all these shops. And that's the reason I shared those contact details. If that wasn't the case I could have redirected him to entire Just Dial directory. I can elaborate on what I found interesting in each & every shop but its up to Senthil if he wants to know more.
If you still think Nautilus is better for fishes you need to wake up & visit Aqua Plantet not the shop in Kurla but their Stock Room near Police station & then revert me back. I was amazed how a Kurla Guy can maintain state-of-the-art filteration system.
Apart from that MAM also the reason where knowledge sharing on LFS gets shared that made my interest to personally drop a visit. BTW you haven't been to MAM do attend

Thank you for waking me up Novice ji. I had no idea about this state of the art stockroom in Kurla. The next time i need to buy a pair of shivrams or shrimps i shall definitely head there.
This just shows how much i (and a lot of other BOMBAY hobbyists) are missing out on by not attending MaM's where a great amount of knowledge and information is shared by experienced stalwarts. Had i attended MaM i would have learnt how to feed upma to my fish and thus saved a fortune on fish food. I would have also learnt how to handle carcinogenic liquids (as a carbon source) for my low tech planted consisting of difficult-to-grow plants like cabomba, water sprite etc.
PS: i regret not coming for the CIFE visit and hence missing out on buying fish sandwich spread.
