Hello all, this is Amitayus (my nick in which I like to be addressed) from Jadavpur, south Kolkata. Professionally I manage the shows of an all India industry association.

Been into this hobby for quite sometime say, 10-12 years. Had dropped it in the past due to some problems, again started with freshwater and now for the past two months have a marine FOWLR too.

Have learnt a lot from KAC about salt water fishkeeping and the way seniors help you sparing their time.

Hello Everyone,

I am Shaji from Bangalore. A complete newcomer to fishkeeping, I have found myself almost getting obsessed with my tank (30 x 15 x 15 in) over the last 2 months that I have had it. It started with my 11 yr old daughters request for an aquarium, but very soon I was the one who was all over it. I completed the fishless cycling (guess I am learning more chemistry now than in school!) in about 5 weeks. Initially, I had no plans for a planted tank. So I started with sand for a substrate and a 600 lph internal filter. Then, I saw to few amazing planted tanks and wanted one like that! I replaced the sand with some used ADA AquaSoil and to a 1000 lph cannister filter. For lights, I have a LED set up (50 watts).

As for fishes, I started with H. Rasboras (introduced 8 of them, 4 at a time with a weeks time in between). 5 of them are still with me. Subsequently, 8 cherry barbs were introduced, but I lost all of them to ick. Right now, I have a few plants (Echinodorus cordiofolius, Java fern, Singapore Moss, Anubias) in the tank. I am looking to add some more 'easy' plants this weekend. Thankfully, wife and folks at home have so far been reasonably patient with my adventures and expenses!!

I'm enjoying my new found hobby. I realize that I need lots of patience and that I have lots to learn!

This is the first time I am joining a hobby forum like this. Looking forward to the experience.

Regards,
AquaQuest

HI, I am Nicklaus, from Mumbai, joined this community some time back, and just noticed this thread. I have been fascinated with aquariums since my childhood, and only just started my own aquarium. I am a fan of small fish, such as fancy guppies, zebra danios, endlers, tetras, etc. My current aquarium is a 33 gallon non planted tank, with a Fluval C2 HOB, and a Marina 100 Air pump. I have used a black gravel substrate, to enhance the visual appeal of the small fishes' bright colours. I have 5 snakeskin guppies males, 5 endlers livebearer males, and 10 baby zebra danios. I am looking to procure a small group of cory cats / kuhli loaches to keep the bottom of the tank occupied, however this will be a little bit into the future. Currently I can keep watching these little fishes for hours together on weekends.
