Hello guys, is there another trip organized again? I recently joined this forum and would be very interested to check out breeding farms? I had been to Matsya darshini, and it was just decent... nothing too great... I wonder what are the varieties of fishes bred at Medchal? Any idea?

a brief write up on the trip,
we all met at rezimental bazar in front of th gopalpuram police station at 9:30 am,
the people who had come were,
Mr.Sharath kumar was kind enough to arrange two cars for us to take us to the breeding farm,
we started from rezimental bazar at 9:45am
took the NH7 which would lead us to jeedimetla and than to Medchal,
when we arrived at jeedimetla we stopped at a hotel and had tea(it felt refreshing),
there we met Mr.Ramakrishna(hatchery incharge) who lead us to the self help groups at jeedimetla,
these are a group of 3-4 families who are breeding livebearers,bettas and zebra danios,
we saw their ponds the fry ,the breeding pairs.......,
i thought the Htachery would be something like this as well but what lay in store for us really surprised me,
the members of the self help groups were kind enough to give us some plants and a double-tail female betta which i had been searching for a long time,
Then we moved on to the Hatchery at Medchal,
this hatchery was really mind blowing
saw some good varieties of african cichlids,goldfishes,tetras, good strains of fancy guppies,hi-fin platies,mollies,oscars,tigersharks,silver dollars,angels.....to name a few,
when asked they said they were concentrating mainly on goldfish,angels and livebearers,
they showed us the fry of guppies ,mollies and goldfish,
showed us the brine shrimp hatchery and how infusoria was being made,
the strains of fishes were very good and of excellent quality(no cross-breds,)only pure breds,
we were given snacks at the hatchery,then we thanked the staff of the hatchery and left ,
hoping to be there again
