 Hi  all,
 
 Don't  you  think  it  would  be  very  nice  if  everyone  posted  a  brief  introduction  about  yourself.  Which  facet  of  the  hobby  interests  you  and  a  note  on  what  you  do.
 
 Rather  than  all  of  us  being  just  a  faceless  nickname,  we  could  associate  each  other  with  this  brief  description.

 Let  me  kick  this  off  with  my  introduction.
 
 I  am  Madan,  a  Marine  Engineer  by  Profession  and  I  am  interested  in  Planted  Aquaria.  I  have  been  in  this  hobby  for  the  past  7  years.
 
 I  now  have  4  Planted  aquaria  with  pressurised  CO2  and  metal  halide  lighting.
 
 I  am  interested  in  all  things  DIY  and  in  finding  cheap  but  highly  effective  alternatives  to  "Aquarium  Goods".  I  go  to  great  lengths  to  research  and  find  alternatives  available  from  other  fields  and  applications.
 
 I  have  just  started  keeping  Killiefish.

 Hi,
 This  is  Beta,  i'm  working  as  a  Media  Producer.  Been  in  the  hobby  for  the  past  15  years,  concentrating  on  cichlids  for  the  last  8  years.
 I  have  4  cement  tanks,  8  glass  tanks  and  a  pond.  
 I'm  always  looking  out  for  challenging  cichlids  to  breed.  Hope  to  breed  all  the  etroplus  species  in  the  future.  Wish  me  luck!

 I  am  Nitin,  and  I  do  Tech  Support  for  Compaq(now  HP).  I  am  into  hardware(computer  hardware).  I  am  from  Coimbatore,  but  now  live  in  Chennai  all  alone(and  damn  happy  to  be  that  way!!!)
 
 Fish  have  always  been  there  at  home,  since  I  was  born,  but  I  have  been  into  serious  fish  keeping  only  for  the  past    Rolling Eyes    4  years.
 
 I  am  into  Discus.  The  latest  news  is  that  the  planted  tank  frenzy  has  hit  me  too!!!
 
 I  have  4  tanks.  One  is  a  planted  tank,  with  DIY  CO2,  and  Metal  Halide  lighting.
 
 Another  is  a  tank  with  8  juvenile  discus,  that  are  now  around  2  to  3  inch  size.  I  got  them  the  size  of  a  50  pise  coin!!!
 
 Then,  I  have  a  tank  with  my  prize  fish,  a  pair  of  Blue  Diamonds,  that  are  full  size.
 
 I  also  have  a  small  holding  tank,  that  I  keep  my  juvenile  kribs,  which  I  am  growing  out.
 
 I  have  yet  another  tank  where  I  am  raising  some  Riccia.  I  cant  get  this  into  the  main  planted  tank,  because  fish  seem  to  love  pulling  up  Riccia!!!
 
 Thats  about  it!

 I  am  Deepak,  a  Network  Engineer  by  Profession.  My  inclination  is  more  towards  plants  than  fish,  First  thing  I  started  off  with  was  a  Echinodorus(Amazon)  &  then  got  a  fish  to  put  in    :lol:  .  I'm  unable  to  get  off  this  hook  thats  anchored  way  down  in  my  heart,  I  love  it    Cool.  Way  back  in  1994  
 
 I  now  have  2  Planted  aquariums  running  on  pressurized  CO2  and  PLL  tubes.  Shortly  I'll  be  migrating  to  metal  halide  lighting.  
 
 Most  of  the  stuff  that  I've  have  is  all  DIY.  I  like  to  customize  stuff  to  my  needs  rather  than  picking  it  off  the  shelves.  The  Canopies  &  control  panels  are  desinged  &  made  by  me.  I  like  to  experiment  with  stuff  that's  been  never  tried  earlier.
 
 I'm  working  on  having  a  Species(Tetra's)  tank  with  Glosso  or  Monosolenium  tenerum.  Idea  
 
 I  undertake  custom  orders  for  Aquariums,  Canopies  with    Lighting  options(Tubes  or  Metal  Halides),  Control  panels  for  Lighting  with  or  without  timer    &  pressurized  CO2  Installations.  I  even  have  plants  for  sale.
 
 For  further  details  please  visit  http://www.geocities.com/deepakbrid//index.html

 Dear  Sriram,
 
 Thanks  for  the  encouraging  words.  Infact  I  think  breeding  Discus  is  easier  if  the  water  parameters  are  correct.  Here  in  Belgaum  we  have  soft  water.  The  advantage  I  found  breeding  discus    is  that  I  do  not  have  to  worry  about  the  fry  food  since  they  graze  on  the  parents  body  initially  which  is  an  important  period.  Hence  i  do  not  have  to  worry  much  abour  the  fry  feeding  initially.  I  have  bred  angels,  gouramis,  fighters  and  live  bearers  in  the  past  but  to  me  breeding  Discus  and  angels  gave  me  much  satisfaction  because  of  the  fantastic  parental  behaviour    and  care  of  these  species  though  occasional  they  do  eat  the  fry..
 
 Regards
 
 Mirji
