The Other Aquarist

The Other Aquarist

My interest in fishes goes a long way back, similar to what many of us have gone by. But for me, the difference has been that I enjoy their company and taking care of their well-being is the top most priority to me. The hobby slowly started expanding into more and more exotic fishes from places previously unheard of and needless to say, it became an obsession. I had an oddball number of tanks, cement containers and kept fish wherever I could. Love cichlids for their character and natives. I have successfully raised our country’s rarest cichlid, the Etroplus canarensis and bred them too.

As more friends joined the bandwagon asking for more and more exotics, I was pushed into the trade by trying to source it for them, and for myself too. As of now, I have over 240 tanks which cater to a wide range of South American and Tanganyikan fishes. All tanks get a daily water change and the fish are fed home-made recipes, live cultured worms, and dry feed in equal measure.

After starting solo for a year, I am now a part of Aquashoppe India Pvt. Ltd., and my stocks are available online at our website. This blog and the website will be regularly updated and all purchases can be made online. Do get in touch with me for your enquiries before placing your orders.
