Currently having 3 Parrot fish along with few others. By profession I am into software. Would like to hear more from KAC and also look forward to meet their members.

Hello Everyone,
My name is Aanand.
I stay in Salt Lake and am working in Supply Chain.
I have always been interested in fishkeeping since quite a long time. Had a 2.5 ft length aquarium with a flimsy aluminium canopy around 25 years ago. Just managed a new glass aquarium (60" x 18" x 24")
Its up and running. Not yet added any fishes though.
Hoping to read and learn here.

My name is Gopal Sharma. I am 60 years old. I belong to a staunch Brahmin family where forget about eating fish you can,t even touch a fish. When I was young my Dadu asked me to have a bath if I ever touch a fish or egg. In the year 1984 I started keeping fish when someone presented a small aquarium to my son as a birthday gift. The passion now was running in me. I kept about 20 Discus in those days when Tetrabit was a luxury, no other imported accessories was availableOnyl 2 active Importers were there.
I gave up and after a gap of 3 decades amy son forced me to have this again. Friends I am again involved.uu

Hi i am kausick from burdwan . By profession a medical representative. From very early days of my childhood i have been with this hobby. (Better called killer then keeper). Almost every sunday I managed to collect some fish ( don't know the spicies ) from local market and keep them in the jar. But next sunday they were not with me [-( . From 2010 i started seriously with 20g freshwater community and now with that i also have 50g and 120g. I kept guppy , moli, goldfish, angle, tetras, danois or zebra, oscar, parrots, siemese tiger, frontosa, some of the cat verity and some Senegal bichir. Now i am very much with mbuna. Want to learn more about fish keeping and associate important things from KAC. Thank you.

Hello KAC

It has always been a pleasure to read through your posts and see the photos. Calcutta does seem to have a huge team of enthusiasts. Be it in aquarium or other hobby based stuff like photography, painting, books etc etc. Its all about being passionate. I have been to quite a few cities around the globe but i have failed to identify so many enthusiasts elsewhere.
Anyways I am in merchant navy for the last eight years. Born in Calcutta brought up in Mumbai, married in Calcutta and now settled here for good.
Fish keeping - well my first tank was gifted to me by my father when i was 8. and since then it continued. Off and on. as time and money permitted. I have sought help from Tirthankar before though i don't remember in which forum and Achintya in recent time was quite helpful too.

I seek knowledge, association and good times from KAC.

Keep fishing!!!!
