 Hi,  my  name  is  Gopi  and  will  be  moving  to  Bangalore  soon.  I  have  never  had  an  aquarium  before  and  will  need  help  from  all  the  Bangalore  based  members  to  help  me  get  a  nice  planted  tank  and  fish.  
 I  will  be  in  Bangalore  in  January  2005  and  will  get  in  touch  again.
 I  know  prices  are  not  supposed  to  me  mentioned  on  this  site,  but  I  hope  someone  can  PM  or  email  me  at  (gopes78  at  gmail  dot  com)  as  to  what  are  the  costs  involved  in  setting  up  a  decent  sized  tank  with  plants  and  fish  and  all  the  necessary  equipment.  I  would  really  appreciate  all  the  help  I  can  get.  Thanks  in  advance.

 Hi  Gopi,
 If  you  let  us  know  what  size  tank  you  plan  to  keep  and  your  budget  we  would  be  able  to  advise  you  better.
 
 As  such  I  can  think  of  the  following  things  for  a  planted  tank->
 
 
    Tank
     Stand
     Hood
     Lights  (Metal  Halide  /  Flouroscent  Tubes)
     Filter  (External  /  Internal)
     Co2  Reactor  /  Diffuser
     Powerhead  (For  Co2  reactor)
     Co2  cylinder  /  DIY  Co2  Yeast  bottle
     misc    (Co2  tubing  /  Non  return  valve  /  Pressure  Gauges)
     Bubble  counter
     Substrate
     Micronutrients
     Plants
     Fishes

 
 Im  sure  I  have  missed  something,guys  please  add..

 Hello  Beta,
 Thanks  for  your  detailed  response.  I  need  advice  from  experts  like  you  as  to  what  I  should  do  as  a  starter  and  build  up  my  interest  in  this  hobby.
 Not  sure  how  much  to  budget  since  I  have  no  idea  about  the  cost,  and  that  means,  I  dont  have  a  clue  !!!    Very Happy  I'd  love  to  have  a  nice  big  aquarium  with  a  variety  of  fish  that  can  co-exist.  I  am  sure  I  can  build  up  the  collection  as  I  go.
 It  would  be  nice  if  there  are  recommendations  by  the  experts  in  this  forum  as  to  what  different  sizes  of  Tanks  and  fish  would  cost  to  setup  based  on  their  own  experience.  This  would  really  help  newbie's  like  me  to  decide  what  to  go  with.
 Really  appreciate  all  your  responses.  I  already  feel  at  home  here.
 Gopi

 You  decide  on  how  much  you  are  willing  to  spend  on  the  hobby.
   It  is  not  only  money  it  is  also  time  you  are  willing  to  spend.  Based  on  that  the  guys  can  give  you  an  idea  on  what  type  of  setup  to  have.  
 Another  good  idea  would  be  to  visit  the  local  hobbyist  aquariums  to  gain  a  first  hand  experience  of  what  you  will  have  to  go  through.  
 If  you  are  in  Bangalore  rest  assured  you  will  be  full  speed  ahead  on  the  fast  track.
 P.s  Purshotam  and  Suhail  Sab  are  going  in  for  bigger  tanks.  So  they  will  be  getting  rid  of  some  of  their  present  tanks.

 Thanks  Reddevil.
 Ok,  since  I  really  dont  have  a  clue  I  am  going  to  throw  out  a  number  and  hopefully  someone  can  tell  me  whether  it  is  possible  or  not  and  if  so,  what  choices  do  I  have.  I  dont  mind  spending  as  much  time  as  required,  and  yeah,  I  would  love  to  meet  up  with  the  Bangalore  guys  and  see  their  stuff.
 I  noticed  that  all  Members  have  not  put  their  Location  in  their  profile,  which  would  really  help.

 You  can  start  off  high  tech  right  away  with  that  type  of  money.  Normally  you  keep  spending  as  the  hobby  progresses  and  you  go  for  upgrades.
