Are there no, hobbyist or anyone in this community who can help me. I need inverts, corals and fish. Being in delhi, there are very few lfs who deal in marine, and those people also dont have what i am looking for. I posted in this forum couple months back, it seems this forum is dead. I am looking for people from any part of country who can provide inverts, corals and fish. It would be great to have feedback from the experienced ones in this community.

You should know, all corals, inverts and live rock are illegal in India. Most of the fishes are also illegal. As a result all of the livestock are illegally poached from the wild. There are very few dealers, mostly in Chennai and Kolkata who import fishes but they charge exorbitantly and even that is not legal.
I was unaware of this fact before plunging into the marine hobby and investing time and money to create the perfect setup. My LFS did supply me with artificial LR, he also has fishes from time to time.
Even if you do manage to get a hold of a dealer, shipping them from the ports will be exorbitantly expensive.
