 I  think  you  are  being  overwhelmed  with  all  the  information  made  available  to  you   Surprised  
 
 My  suggestion  is  take  a  step  back  and  go  through  the  specific  information  like  Nitrogen  cycle,  basic  filteration  techniques  and  fish  compatibility.  You  don't  seem  ready  for  planted  tanks  so  no  need  to  worry  about  CO2.  And  no  need  for  any  chillers  as  well  for  they  are  mostly  used  for  SW  Reef  set-ups.
 
 WRT  the  question  asked  by  you,  go  for  a  cannister  filter  if  you  can.  UGF  is  not  recommended  by  most  experts.
 
 Once  you  start  visiting  the  LFS  in  person,  you  will  understand  what  we  all  have  been  trying  to  tell  you.  Don't  blindly  go  by  what  the  LFS  guy  says,  because  he  might  try  to  sell  you  his  fishes  by  lying  about  compatibilities.  Just  get  back  with  the  names,  google  and  check  out  if  a  combo  works.  Try  to  resist  buying  on  impulse,  especially  the  LFS  guy  says  "  Limited  edition/very  rare/would  get  sold  by  tomorrow'.  
 
 Also,  for  LFS  in  Calcutta,  try  with  a  new  post  with  that  as  the  subject  line.  I  am  sure  hobbyists  from  nearby  regions  can  help  you,  its  just  that  most  might  not  be  reading  this  post.

 Hi  guys,
 
 this  is  a  question  for  kolkata  people  specifically...I  spoke  on  the  phone  with  splashing  meadows  and  the  estimate  they  are  giving  for  the  aforementioned  aquarium  with  12mm  glass  seems  to  be  quite  high..around  5-6k.  Could  anyone  tell  me  if  the  price  is  right?  Also,  if  the  price  is  over  the  top,  could  anyone  point  me  to  some  people  who  can  make  the  tank  for  me  if  i  bought  them  all  the  materials?  Many  thanks  in  advance..

 Guys,
 I  have  decided  on  these  fish,  but  it  seems  i  have  not  even  reached  60%  of  my  stocking  capacity(3x2.5x2.5)  according  to  aq  advisor-
 
 12  Neon  Tetras
 6  Dwarf  Gouramis
 4  Dalmatian  Mollies
 2  Fantail/Oranda  Goldfish
 
 I  would  want  to  stock  up  on  other  breeds,  but  i  am  having  trouble  deciding.  Guppies  ,  Corys  and  Ottos  are  the  obvious  choices,  but  could  you  give  me  some  other  ideas?  Try  to  exclude  catfish  and  sharks  for  now...  please  help  me  out.
 Any  Cichlids  i  can  keep?

 lamat  ...
 
 You  do  not  need  to  achieve  100%  stocking  capacity  from  day  1  ..  Or  some  folk  deliberately  keep  the  stocking  low  ...
 As  suggested  please  do  read  about  nitrogen  cycle  -  Any  questions  feel  free  to  ask  ....
 
 And  NO  CICHLIDS  -  with  the  above  stock  you  have  in  mind  ...

 Hi  Subhankar,
 
 I  have  read  about  the  nitrogen  cycle,  and  i  intend  to  go  for  it.  I  am  not  going  to  stock  it  up  100%  but  will  go  increasing  little  by  little.  The  reason  i  asked  was  so  i  could  have  an  end  target  in  mind.  As  in  once  i  finish  stocking  up  completely,  what  all  would  be  there  in  my  tank.
 If  i  were  to  keep  cichlids,  i  know  these  fish  wouldnt  be  possible...what  other  fish  can  i  go  for  if  i  am  aiming  for  a  cichlid  tank?  One  cichlid  i  have  a  weakness  for  is  the  Duboisi.

 Lamant,
 
 I'm  not  from  Kolkata,  but  one  thing  about  Splashing  Meadows,  the  prices  from  this  guy  are  always  a  bit  on  a  higher  side,  but  the  quality  is  really  good.
 I'd  suggest  you  buy  all  your  live  stock  from  him.  As  far  as  tank  is  concerned,  you  can  get  it  custom  made  from  anywhere.
 
 Secondly,  don't  try  to  go  for  100%  capacity.  60%  of  total  stocking  capacity  is  fine  enough  for  all  times.  Smile
