 Hi,
 
 I  am  looking  to  setup  my  first  ever  aquarium,  and  for  this,  I  was  planning  a  trip  to  a  fish  farm  at  Boisar,  on  (or  beyond)  the  outskirts  of  Mumbai,  which  is  actually  only  a  few  stations  (and  about  an  hour  either  by  road  or  train)  from  where  I  live.  A  friend  of  mine  developed  a  contact  with  a  fish  farm  owner  from  Boisar,  who  has  a  large  variety  of  aquarium  fish,  and  normally  sells  to  larger  LFSs  and  sometimes  to  hobbyists.
 
 I  spoke  with  the  owner  over  the  phone  on  Friday  evening,  and  he  confirmed  availability  of  various  guppies,  tetras,  cichlids,  arowana  (few  available),  danios,  platies,  and  gouramis  including  bettas.  There  could  be  more  species  /  varieties  available,  however,  I  only  enquired  about  these  species  /  types.
 
 I  am  looking  to  procure  some  small  to  medium  sized,  schooling,  peaceful  fish  for  my  new  130L  tank,  and  thus  had  sent  out  feelers  for  the  same.
 
 I  am  planning  to  visit  there  on  this  Sunday  for  a  preview  only,  since  I  have  not  yet  started  fishless  cycling  in  my  tank.  I  shall  look  at  the  various  fishes  available,  and  decide  accordingly.  Purchasing  will  be  done  only  after  the  tank  has  completed  fishless  cycling.
 
 Planning  to  post  pics  from  that  trip  place  here,  if  members  are  interested.
 
 (Umm,  as  the  fish  farm  owner  is  a  friend  of  a  friend  of  a  friend,  I  would  like  to  establish  some  form  of  contact  and  goodwill  with  him  before  I  can  take  some  fellow  hobbyists  on  a  trip  with  me.)

 Hey  people,  due  to  some  un  avoidable  circumstances,  I  have  postponed  this  trip  by  2  weeks.  The  owner  of  the  fish  farm  had  to  unexpectedly  go  out  of  town,  and  I  will  not  be  able  to  go  there  next  Sunday  due  to  earlier  family  commitments.  So,  will  update  on  the  5th  October.
 
 What  this  allows  me  to  do,  is  to  cycle  my  tank  for  a  longer  period  of  time.
 
 
 So,  cheers,
 -nwk.

 I  finally  managed  to  scrape  some  time  today,  and  visited  this  amazing  place.
 
 The  in-charge,  Mr.  Bhambardekar  was  kind  enough  to  walk  me  through  the  basics  of  being  able  to  manage  such  a  large  facility,  and  appraised  me  of  the  efforts  required  to  handle  the  responsibility  of  so  many  teeny  tiny  lives.
 
 I  am  attaching  herewith  photos  which  I  could  capture  with  my  overrated  phone  camera.
 
 The  variety  of  fish  he  had  were:
 Fancy  cichlids,
 Zebra  Danios,
 Snakeskin  /  cobra  guppies,
 green  varigate  guppies  (he  called  them  by  this  name,  dunno  the  actual  nomenclature).
 moscow  guppies,
 green  variegated  guppies,
 electric  blue  guppies,
 Endler's  livebearers,
 Flowerhorns,
 Goldfish  -  fantail  and  more  varieties  which  I  did  not  get  the  names  of,
 Platys,
 Mollies,
 Oscars  cichlids,
 golden  gouramis,
 3  spot  gouramis,
 tiger  gouramis,
 etc.
 
 Of  these  types,  we  were  able  to  closely  observe  all  except  the  moscow  guppies,  green  variegated  guppies,  electric  blue  guppies.  This  was  due  to  them  being  in  the  deep  large  vats  made  into  the  earth.  These  vats  were  so  deep,  that  observing  the  fish  within  them  was  about  impossible.
 
 I  had  2  of  my  friends  along  with  me,  both  of  whom  are  long  term  aquarium  owners,  though  they  are  not  members  of  IAH.
 
 I  purchased  5  snakeskin/cobra  guppies,  5  endler's  live  bearers,  10  zebra  danios,  all  very  young,  and  small,  to  the  point  of  being  tiny.  My  friend  purchased  2  fantail  goldfishes  to  gift  to  his  father  in  law.
 
 One  thing  which  I  found  to  be  very  peculiar  was  that,  this  particular  fish  farm  owner  refused  to  sell  me  any  female  guppies,  saying  that  its  a  business  policy.  The  danios  which  I  purchased  were  so  tiny  that  they  were  not  segregated  on  the  basis  of  gender,  and  thus  I  might  have  gotten  some  females,  which  only  time  will  tell.
 
 Pics  are  attached  in  the  subsequent  post.
