All in all - right from the touch down at Venkat's home - Pre-event tour - Aquatika 2007 -Dinner, everything was so well organized & it was a great experience meeting other members for the first time, especially Nauzer, Rahul, Pradeep....

Firstly i would like to say that my trip to chennai was simply superb...This was my 1st Aquatika and will be something i will remember..
Special thanks to ravi for the warm welcome and Sriram and Bala for taking us around .. And chennai Team for hosting the event..
The event was full of fun and trevor's humorous comments too..and the one about the snapping turtles i will never forget..
It was a very good opportunity for me to learn a lot about the marine as i didn't know anything about the same...and other speakers as well and the immense knowledge they have about the subject..
like Nauzer and rahul are like walking /talking encyclopedias with lots of practical knowledge..Thanks guys..Liked your presentations very very much...The frontosa presentation was also an eye opener for me..

I'm very glad that the event turned out nicely. From my conversation with Adip, I understand that it must have been a very enjoyable experience. It was a shame that I could not be there in person to witness the event and listen to the knowledgeable speakers.
I would like to apologize to the folks who were looking forward to the promised publications as well as more plants at Aquatika 07. There was a slight delay for the delivery and the goods just did not make it in time for the event. Adip and I will be working at delivering these via courier.
Hopefully, I will be able to find time to attend the next Aquatika and do something more for this wonderful event, especially for the planted tank hobbyists.
Many thanks to the IAH team for making this event happen. You guys keep up the wonderful job and the joyful spirit.
