fishdeal was founded by Shravan Kokroo and Arvind Koul. Combining a lifelong passion for aquariums with their love for art, design, and architecture the team set out to create a new kind of custom fishdeal installation, and maintenance firm founded on the belief that the aquarium could be elevated to the same respected heights as other form of arts. To balance the specific needs of the precious life forms that make their work possible with an aesthetic sensitivity to form, function and space would become their life’s work. And to have the word aquascape became a fundamental term in the aquarium ownership conversation would become their obsession.
has set new standards in the custom aquarium and aquarium design industry. Every fishdeal design is a custom, site-specific custom aquarium installation that reflects the clients’ imaginative choices. Our design team of interior and furniture specialists, architects, sculptors, biologists and visual artists can build and maintain marine and freshwater custom aquariums.
The fishdeal team has created residential, commercial, and artistic installations all over the country. Its diversity of client’s include The Golden Palms Hotel, Samavar, Shivani Estates, trendy residences, world-class offices, artists like Shamshad Hussain and Geeta Dass, Spiritual Gurus like Shri Virendra Qazi and corporations like Jubiliant (Dominos), mCarbon, Cypress Solutions, Ambassadors etc. The fishdeal distinction comes from its faith in utilizing the wealth of materials, aesthetic expressions, and artistic talents that exist throughout the world.
From the beginning fishdeal focused on freshwater aquarium as opposed to the existing standard in the aquarium service industry of saltwater aquariums. The team believed firmly in the ability of the freshwater aquarium to transcend the somewhat fixed aesthetic of the saltwater aquarium with the wider array of decorative element and overall opportunity a properly envisioned and composed freshwater aquarium offers. Different species of driftwood, stones, and substrates could be combined to create many different looks, while also being warmer, more natural, and more tunable to various interior styles. Add to it the ultimate simplicity of a freshwater system (filtration, lighting etc).Compared to saltwater system and it becomes a choice that for the majority of clients is an obvious one once exposed to the possibilities.
But it was certainly not to say that Shravan and his team did not also possess a great appreciation for a thoughtfully composed saltwater aquarium as well. As evidenced by many exceptional past and present marine aquarium works in their portfolio, it is a style at which fishdeal excels and embraced with full commitment and passion. The sophistication and unrivaled effect a live coral reef or ornamental marine fish system has on a space cannot be underestimated. And with the rapid advancement of both new technologies and aquaculture (captive breeding) of more and more marine life, the dream of a truly efficient, sustainable, conscientious, marine aquarium is closer everyday.
From Shravan and the entire team at fishdeal, we look forward to opportunities to bring to your space the unique underwater fusion of nature and design that is a custom aquarium installation by fishdeal. We invite you to experience our online portfolio video library and to join us on our facebook pages for all of our latest news, project updates, and new photo
and video additions.

The square symbol is an anchor to the Hindu way of thought. Here we see squares representing the natural (structured) order of the universe. We can branch off from there by observing the four-sided structures that surround us in our environment. Like: The Four Sides of the Square Symbolize
The four cosmic elements (Sun, Moon, Planets, Stars).
The four common phases of human life (Birth, Child, Adult, Death).
The four major season (Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn).
The four cardinal directions (North, South, East, West).
The four prime elements (Fire, Earth, Air, Water).
In the Chinese way of thought, the square is a symbol for earth with the circle representing the shape of the heavens. This lends further weight to the earthy, grounded nature of the square symbol meaning. Indeed, our ancestors transitioned from nomadic life by exchanging tents and teepees (circular) for solid square-based structures. All of these aspects combined (perhaps as a meditative tool, contemplating the square) invite us to do precisely what the square implies: Structural Symbolism of the Square Implies

Colour Black: Positive traits include protection and comfort, strong, contained, formal, sophisticated, seductive, mysterious, endings & beginnings. The Color Black Represents Mystery: Black is the unknown. It is secretive, keeping a lot buried inside, unwilling to show its real feelings. Power and Control: Black is power and control of the self and others. It creates fear and intimidation. Effects of the Color Black Formal, dignified and sophisticated: As in the little black dress and the formal dinner suit. Aloof: Black sets itself aside from others with its heavy and intense energy. It keeps others at arm’s length.
We are inspired at fishdeal to deliver atleast one aquascape or aquarium in every household in India. This inspiration and motivation has come to us from the ancient Indian scriptures like Vedas wherein it is mentioned that looking after GauMata (Holy cows) outside the home and looking after fish inside the home bring immense luck. We have practically seen that people who install aquariums in their homes/offices (but of excellent quality like those supplied by us) gain both luck and joy forever.
It is indeed a blessing, nerve soothing experience and a lovely feeling to admire and adore the beautiful fish and their movements in the clear waters of one’s aquarium at home or office. People who have aquariums in their homes/offices often say that they feel blessed to have invested in joy and beauty.
By interweaving the timeless spiritual truths with the attitude of respect for nature & its elements, the Vedic texts present a culture for right living. The culture of ecology which was one’s part of the Indian heritage is very quickly fading away. Reviving this culture is the progressive and sustainable way to tackle the menace of pollution at all spheres of life.
Yeslife makes this mantra pragmatic by providing complete delivery and aftersales care of the high quality and beautiful aquaria supplied by them.
