LOL! Seriously.. IMO I think the SW hobby is limited to a very few and thus making supplies limited as well. Demand creates Supply right!? So, its quite natural the choices are limited, and even the most common species of fish are expensive. And to add to the agony, its against the law to sell / buy Live Rock, Corals...

Hi Ragu,

I know several folks from Tamil Nadu area. Just don't aks me to pronounce their names

Most are working in the States or at the IT centers in India.

You cannot buy LR or coral? Are you allowed to collect it?
Know anyone with a boat???

Yes Cmor, none of the LFS are selling Corals or LR. This is infact a recent restriction a few months back. However I dont know if this is all over India or if its some restriction in my city / state. But I've heard the same response from almost 6 LFS guys.

I can get hold of people with boats through other friends. Why?

Considering my interests in to the SW and Reef hoby, I think you guys are lucky to be having access to so many of the lovely species. You know, it so **** difficult and expensive to find SW fishes and Inverts in India. Its a hobby which has still not got the right momentum out here.

there are a ton more then just the scarlet badis there. new fish are being discovered in india all the time.

Thank you Mike and Kristin!

@Danny: Good suggestion. I am getting to know new people the more I'm exploring. Not sure if there is a club or some sort of association. Will find out about that.

@mgamer: Agree with you. Maybe you should make a trip down to India sometime
