Went looking for your Cichlid pond thread... found it... wow... that looks amazing!! Yes give us an update, want to see more. Do you sell your Cichlids to pet stores? How did you get permission to build such a huge pond at your apartment?
For one so young.... you are amazing!! (She tries to remember what she was doing at 14? )

Thanks a lot for the praise Ill get you the update by tomorrow No i dont sell them yet as i have found no pet store willing to buy them at my price, though i do plan on selling some of the babies for a cheap price . We have a 2 floor apartment, the top floor is a whole terrace while the bottom is where we live. We can put whatever we want on the terrace, but there is a certain weight allowed per sq meter though i cant remember it The whole thing weighs about 800 kg
(She tries to remember what she was doing at 14? ) -ha ha LOL I spend most of my time tending to my tanks. I get home from school and go to look at my aquarium, My mom is always after me that i should eat something first and then feed the fish but im always like .... First the fish then me
thanks again for all the kind words

wow! that's a lot of smileys!!

No problem at all feel free to ask anything I have been born in India as my mom and dad moved here 3 years before i was born. My dad started an IT business here in pune along with two other partners from Germany which he was allowed to do because he had completed his PHD and had written a very good one about how computers would affect earth in the future. The company flourished and he decided to sell it and start making a farm- so he went into farming business as he had always wanted. So we founded company- (green tokri) In Hindi, the local language, tokri means "basket" so its called green basket. that's basically why were here Here are the promised pics of my pond..... And a few of both our cats called Findus and Felix... findus is the bigger one , the brownish one, hes about 4 years old and Felix is about 3.
Enjoy!! IMG_5292.JPG

The pond of the cichlids is one the terrace. We dont have a yard here but we own a lot of land on the mountains on the outskirts of pune. We bought land there a long time ago and the land there still just cost like 8 dollars a square foot!!! We built ourselves a farmhouse there and we go there every weekend. Ill show you some pics of the farmhouse too and thats where all our other ponds are. Pics of those as well soon
