 Hi,
 
 Does  anyone  have  any  idea  about  www.makemyhobby.com  ?  They  seem  to  have  all  the  lovely  fish  under  the  sun  including  Red  lobster,  Red  kadango,  Peacock  Cichlid,  tropheus  bulu  point,  Duboisi,  croaking  gourami,  panda  cory,  zebra  snail  etc.  i  may  be  pessimistic,  but  find  it  too  good  to  be  true!  Also  the  fact  that  they  operate  from  a  Post  Box  makes  me  more  cautious.  They  dont  encourage  buyers  to  visit  them  nd  pick  up  stuff.
 
 If  anyone  knows  about  them  or  have  successfully  ordered  stuff  from  them  please  let  me  know  so  that  I  can  order  lots  of  stuff  from  them.

 I  have  used  them  once  for  a  pair  of  nerite  snails,  without  any  problems.  For  small  orders  the  shipping  works  out  to  be  a  bit  costly.

 They  don't  send  fishes  to  Ranchi.  Their  dispatches  take  3  weeks  from  confirmation  of  payment.  I  have  used  them  for  nerites  and  plants.  So  so  -  not  fly  by  night.

 Recently  I  ordered  some  9  varaities  of  plants.  After  three  weeks  they  shipped  by  speed  post  which  I  received  after  three  days.  They  had  dumped  all  in  one  single  plastic  bag  and  when  I  opened  the  bag  everything  was  found  rotten.  further  the  quanty  sent  was  too  little  for  the  price.  Some  plants  were  tangled  with  algae.  It  was  a  complete  washout  for  me.  They  never  responded  for  my  mail  and  when  I  complained  online  they  simply  did  not  accept  responsibility  for  the  speed  post  delay.  
 If  they  are  really  responsible  they  should  have  packed  neatly  and  should  have  sent  by  overnight  courier.  They  charged  Rs.168  for  the  shipping  but  saved  Rs.100  by  sending  by  speed  post  resulting  complete  loss  of  about  Rs.1900  for  me.
 Thank  god  I  did  not  order  fishes.

 Ok,  thanks  for  our  updates  on  that.  I  have  decided  to  stay  away  from  it.

 Good  choice  stayed  away  from  them  and  I  suffered  more  than  sssram.  But  actually  there  is  no  other  choice,  I  couldn't  find  any  other  online  aquarium  shop  in  India  with  such  a  huge  list  of  species.  They  ship  live  fish  through  Railway  parcel  and  send  you  the  receipt  copy  by  email.  You  have  to  go  to  the  railway  station  to  pick  them  up  (wasn't  an  easy  task  for  me  as  I  am  partially  handicapped  due  to  an  accident).  They  say  Indian  law  don't  permit  live  item  through  POST.  I  received  a  healthy  set  of  species  though.  But  make  sure  you  are  ready  to  suffer  in  silence  for  atleast  a  month  after   payment  is  made  without  any  communication  (They  won't  reply  your  mail,  LiveChat  on  their  site  is  a  joke)  before  the  package  reach  you.
 
 Now  your  choice.  I  am  still  looking  for  an  alternative  as  I  badly  need  those  red  lobster.

 Its  best  to  stay  away  from  all  these  online  shops.  With  such  poor  consumer   laws,  we  have  no  choice  but  to  buy  only  physically.

 It's  a  shame  an  organization  having  such  a  huge  and  exotic  category  of  fishes  doesn't  conduct  fair  business  practice.  It  could  be  a  heaven  for  aquarium  hobbyist  in  India.  I  guess,  I  just  have  to  wait  for  a  new  reliable  online  shop  to  open.  Chances  are  very  low  though  having  the  ridiculous  Indian  regulations  standing  in  way.

 Hey  Applesnail,
 
 So  far  my  interaction  with  Suraj  (nature_lover)  has  been  very  warm,   and  with  Deepak  Brid  (aquadeep)  very  cordial.  Both  interactions  have  been  professional  and  100%  satisfactory.  My  second  call/email  to  them  have  always  been  'thank  you'  and  never  "where  is  my  stuff"?   Though  I  can  vouch  for  them  any  day,  always  remember  that  I  can  only  talk  about  my  experience.

 Hello  Avi,
 
 Are  we  talking  about  same  company?  makemyhobby.com  ?  If  yes  how  did  you  get  their  number?  They  don't  publish  their  number  anywhere  (I  checked  deep  down  google).  Neither  they  provide  any  other  email  address  other  that  contact  us  form  on  their  web  which  will  give  you  a  do  not  reply  kind  of  address,  I  have  asked  for  their  number  on  live  chat  also  but  they  didn't  responded.  Do  you  really  have  their  email  address  and  phone  number?  If  you  can  share  those  It  may  feel  a  little  secure  to  purchase  from  them.
 
 Regards

 Hey  applesnail,  not  at  all.  Suraj  and  Deepak  are  very  experienced  members  (and  I  think  staff?)  of  this  forum.  I  have  provided  their  user  names  in  braces.

 Well  some  comments  posted  on  some  site  ........
 
 1>
 Dead  Plants,  Missing  Fish
 Hi,
 As  an  aquarium  enthusiast,  I  was  excited  to  see  makemyhobby.com,  a  website  that  seems  to  have  an  unbelievable  array  of  aquarium  fish  and  accessories.  I  placed  an  order  amounting  to  3000  rupees  and  shipping  fees  for  500  Rs.  Imagine  my  surprise  when  the  very  expensive  plants  I  ordered  all  came  back  dead!  The  live  fish  didn't  arrive  at  all.  The  only  thing  that  came  safe  was  fish  food.
 They  have  very  poor  customer  service  and  didn't  even  offer  to  resend  the  order.  Please  be  wary  of  this  site  and  wait  until  you  find  a  better  site.  They  don't  seem  to  be  reputable  at  all.
 -Abhishek
 2>
 You  are  absolutely  right  !
 The  company  is  a  total  SHAM  ...  they  take  customers  for  a  ride  ...  a  very  long  one  for  me...
 The  huge  array  of  products  displayed  by  them  is  absolutely  good  for  nothing  ...  made  me  wait  for  20  days  before  even  bothering  to  send  me  an  email  ...  saying  that  the  products  were  out  of  stock  !!!  
 Man  what  a  Joke  !!  ...  Why  write  "in  stock  xxx  units"  when  you  dont  have  the  same  ...They  again  made  me  wait  for  15  MORE  days...  I  got  totally  fed  up.  I  was  Very  Very  lucky  to  have  used  Pay  Pal  for  the  payment  ...  The  ppl  at  PayPal  made  sure  I  got  a  complete  refund  ...  Very  very  harrowing  experience  and  a  very  very  narrow  escape  ...  Try  your  luck  if  u  have  to  ...
 3>
 Makemyhobby.com,  Make  My  Hobby
 Cheaters  !!!  The  store  is  full  of  rude  customer  service  reps  and  total  cheaters.  Most  items  on  display  are  not  in  stock  and  they  ship  DEAD  plants  and  fish.  Then  they  ask  you  to  ship  the  same  BUT  UNOPENED  plastic  bags  to  them  AT  YOUR  OWN  COST  !!!  Further,  NO  REFUND  ...  just  "Gift  Certificates"  for  the  amount  spent  ...  so  they  can  cheat  you  all  over  again.
 4>
 Much  better  to  order  over  phone  from  decent  people  in  the  trade  like  Aquazona  Eports  in  New  Delhi  or  the  official  Ehyme  guy  in  Puna  /  Nagpur  (Nopani  ?).  Even  www.indiapetstore.com  has  a  fantastic  reputation.  These  owners  of  makemyhobby.com  are  just  fly  by  night  operators.  Dont  trust  them.
 5>
 Ya,  you  are  right  ...  Aquazona  Exports  (Any  hardware  under  the  sun  -  all  originals  and  at  throwaway  prices)  :  01123268465  or  Nopani  :  (Off  Eheim  in  India)  in  pune  :  09371007883  /  02040054736  and  even  online  at  http://indiapetstore.com  are  all  good  choices.  Good  reputation  unlike  makemyhobby
 6>
 WOW  ...  lots  of  comments  for  1  day  !!!
 Makemyhobby.com,  Make  My  Hobby
 Cheaters  !!!  The  store  is  full  of  rude  customer  service  reps  and  total  cheaters.  Most  items  on  display  are  not  in  stock  and  they  ship  DEAD  plants  and  fish.  Then  they  ask  you  to  ship  the  same  BUT  UNOPENED  plastic  bags  to  them  AT  YOUR  OWN  COST  !!!  Further,  NO  REFUND  ...  just  "Gift  Certificates"  for  the  amount  spent  ...  so  they  can  cheat  you  all  over  again.
 
 Also,  there  were  2  positive  experiences  and  1  neutral.....
