Q&A Letter Spotlight

Prateek Dutta (Calcutta, India) writes to Bob about:
Sandbed Substrates & Plenum

Dear Mr. Bob, Sir, I am a 20 year old from India and am doing my graduation work on botany (1st year). I am from Calcutta and have been keeping aquariums since I was 11. Now I am planning to keep a reef aquarium of 200 gallons. This is not my hobby, but my passion. In India there are coral reefs all around the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. And also the Lakshadweep Islands and south of India the Maldives (There are 1,200 Atolls in the Maldives), so you would say this is a haven for reef keepers. Until recently, there was a good supply of the most rarest corals and unimaginable cheap prices, more.
