 Hi  Kushik,
 Here  are  a  few  that  i  know  of  
 1.  Government  Aquarium  -  Bangalore  M.G  Road  
 2.  Government  Aquarium  -  Ooty,  Next  to  the  Bus  Stand,  Should  have  about  30  to  40  glass  tanks,  with  guppies,  mollies  gold  fish  and  carp  mainly,  they  also  have  huge  out  door  trout  breading  in  cement  tanks.  
 Maintenance  is  reasonably  bad  
 They  have  an  ok  collection  of  fossils  and  bones
 3.  Aquarium  at  Brindavan  Gardens  Mysore-  20  to  30  tanks,  very  bad  maintenance.  
 4.  Taraporewala  Aquarium  In  Mumbai-  The  Mumbai  boys  could  add  the  details,
 I  think  the  star  attraction  here  are  the  Green  Turtles  in  an  Cramped  Tank.
 
 Will  add  more  detail  asap
 
 Rgds

 Hi
 
 Visakhapatnam  too  has  one  public  aquarium  situated  at  the  RK  beach  road.  They  have  about  25  tanks  of  both  marine  and  fresh  water,  and  a  good  collection  of  various  dead  corals  on  display.though  the  entrance  cost  is  a  bit  high  at  Rs  30/-.
