I am surprised to hear that, Deepak. I have only known you to go out of your way to promote the fish keeping hobby. You have shared food cultures across cities, and arranged for them, made and taken calls from total strangers who wanted help and given it, messages, personal visits... what not. That is one reason (among many others) I value your friendship and kindness so much. The proof is all over this website for anyone who cares to open and check!
Take me, my help has been limited to NCR mostly, and I am supposed to give mini tubifex culuture to dear Neil Thirumuttam since last August. He sent me as many as 5 lilys by courier in exchange, but after falling ill and losing all my cultrues, I am just not able to get the mini tubifex going again despite many attempts.
The people who think otherwise about you need to take a look in IAH, if they really care to know facts. IAH is in debt of people like you, as is the whole hobby.
In June at Aquatica Pune the beer worms we sent for Neil at Kerala are still with Rahul and Neil has yet to pick them up from Cochin or it would have reached you in that lillies courier
I am lucky, but only in my friends
I am actually glad that they are still with Rahul because due to weird unknown issues with my minitubifex culture, and the bout of dengue that I got that cleaned all my old cultures out, I have not been able to send a cocopeat minitubifex culture to Neil Thirumuttam. Even after 4 months or so of getting lilies from him.
I would have felt even guiltier than I feel now.
Thanks to the vinegar eels getting delayed to this time, I got the opportunity to meet Harsh Makker, a really dedicated young hobbyist. Deepak Ganguly zindabad :And you and Chetan too

Thanks to dear Pio too..
Ok, it has been around two weeks since I put half the vinegar eels in kombucha tea. And today, I was happy to see that there were as many vinegar eels in the kombucha tea as there were in the apple cider vinegar with the apple slices
So the experiment is a success
I do not have to buy beer (being a nondrinker) or apple cider vinegar (American Garden brand is over 200 bucks with shipping for a bottle), I just make an extra cup of kombucha tea for the eels in a week, and use the eels to feed my surface dwelling fish fry like the Clown Killifish we have got recently in Delhi.
If any IAH feels he wants to keep a kombucha mushroom (which can lie unused for over a month with no major ill effect) for his vinegar eels is free to contact me.
Hope to get some pics also, as soon as I find my camera, of eels thriving not only in the tea water but also in the kombucha mushroom shown in the first page.

The vinegar eels in Kombucha tea have been harvested in January and have done very well indeed. I plan to offer kombucha mushroom to anyone who wants vinegar eels or beer worms (same worm, same species), so that they do not have to use beer or coffee or apple cider vinegar (all of which come with a price).
