Been a part of the hobby since the time I was born as my Dad used to have this hobby but personally I Purchased my own betta tank as a personal hobby this January 2015 so yeah in a sense I am pretty new.

I have a 7.something US gallon Glass Tank Measuring 12" x 12" x 12"

I have a Betta Splendens, Two Platys, and two Cories.

I have a 25 watt Heater which does it job pretty well, A corner Water Polisher, And an undergravel Filter with only one stem Attached to it Basically all these combined keeps my tank pretty crystal clear.

My Personal Interest is to Upgrade it from a normal betta tank to a fully aquascaped natural betta habitat.

I have a small cave as a hiding place an Amazon Sword and a Cryptocoryne Becketti.

I am a student and i do pay regualr visits to gallif.

I used to have a aquarium in long back (i was 10 years old) but was accidentally broken.
However I am very much interested to have a new aquarium. So I have joined this community so that I can learn from the experts and start my own.

Hi All,

I am an IT professional by profession working with Wipro for the last 10 years. I started keeping fishes from i guess 2006, hence having a small experience with fishes. At present I have 2 fish tanks, one a smaller one of around 2 ft. which has tetras mainly with live aquatic plants, but the best part is the Electric blue ram which are electrifying :) . The other tank is around 5 ft in length and have many aquatic fishes, the best one is a pair of parrot fishes.
I am at present in kolkata for the last 5 years, but not sure for how long i will be here.
I would like to know more about the species and would also like to share experiences hence joined the group.

Regards,
Pratip

Hi guys; I am Subhaditya. Before my intro, I must take this opportunity to thank KAC founding members who conceived this amazing idea of forming this group. A little something about me. Like most, I loved keeping guppies in Horlicks jars when I was a kid. Although I had a small tank with few plecos and gold fishes, unfortunately I wasn’t able to do much about taking this hobby further as I had to leave Kolkata for my studies. I am presently working in Qatar in a power plant since 2009. It was only last year when my passion of fishkeeping again lit up. I am presently trying to balance my interests between aquascaping and fish keeping, both being very close to my heart. I am so glad to be a part of this club and have no words enough to appreciate you guys who literally have taken fishkeeping in Kolkata to a new level. Its always great to meet some people who are as insane as me :) Keep it up guys .
Cheers!!!

Sorry guys. Didn't mean to do that. My name is Vijay and I'm from Bangalore. Ian 34 yrs old and work for a NBFC. Have always been into aquariums and fish keeping right from my childhood. I currently own a 5x2x2 planted Discuss take. I did have Another layout with short grass as the foreground which I brought down and decided to try my luck on Monte Carlo & and Discus and that's how I reached where I am today. I currently own around 25+ pieces ranging from 3 -7 inch and a few other Tetras in that tank. I do have some concerns but nothing urgent. Will bring it up during. The course of time. I have attached a few snaps of how my tank looked before I took it down and now.

That's for now. Looking forward to what lies ahead.

Cheers

Vijay Sadasivan (
