    How it all started??

    Well my fish keeping hobby started in a very weird way..I was in class 7 and my father was then working for Exide Industries limited, one evening he came back from office with a submarine battery acid container which was a rejected sample as it had a small dent from it's moulding, he brought it home so that my mom could make a vase out of it if possible. The shape of it looked kinda like an elongated 1.5 ft cube of a single glass, the design of it got me thinking why not make something out of it. Quickly went down to a carpenter shop an got a hut type hood made (that too red in color), till date I honestly do not know why I did it(but thank god I did, got me into a wonderful hobby). Put a light in an' it looked brilliant, then it struck me why not keep a few fish in it an' then came home jack an' goldie, my two fantail gold fish, from there moved to a 2ft tank a year later. post which there was a stop gap of like 6-7 years as I was travelling a lot for college etc, now that I am settled in bangalore getting back to my roots again.

    I started by going in my grandfather's basement. When my dad was a kid, he had about 10 or 15 tanks. When i was in the basement as about a 10 year old, i went in and immediately wanted a fish tank. I then took his 20 gallon tank and set it up after purchasing all the equipment. Not the best story, but it is a memory i have always remembered.

    I'd always kept fish since small my reason for getting into aquascaping was an offshoot of discovering these:

    Someone pointed out they would make nice shrimp tanks which lead me to planted tank and into the aquascaping hobby. I didn't discover amano till I'd been in the hobby for at least 12 months...
