Mrs. Anuradha Singh
Founder & Director
A teacher by profession and a lover of Nature from the days of her childhood. Nurturing life is deeply ingrained in this lady.
Her love for Nature comes from some very vivid memories that are very close to her heart from her childhood and when she used to visit her home in her native village.
Whether it was the ants making their homes or ant hills around the trees and carrying loads that were 20 times more than their own weight or the birds during the Indian monsoons shielding their offspring from the heavy rains in the trees and their nests with their wings spread out.
Simply put and in her own words- “Nature is just amazing in each and every one of its forms.”
The love for Aquascaping also had its seed laid in her memory from her childhood days, wherein she would visit the zoo in her city which had a Nature Aquarium. It is from there, that she always wanted to try her hand at Aquascaping.
To help her with this and her journey in the wonderful world of Nature Aquariums and Aquascaping, is her husband and he has been instrumental as he too is a Nature Lover, a Nature Aquarium enthusiast and an Aquascaper. It’s been 11 years and counting now, being associated and part of the Wonderful World of Nature Aquariums & Aquascaping.

It is imperative that they understand the importance and role of Mother Nature and her ability to birth life on this planet.
The world of Nature Aquariums and Aquascaping has encapsulated his life to the point where all he can think about is just that! The joy and challenge of creating Ecosystems within a glass box or beautiful scenes with stories and perspectives take up a lot of the hard drive in his head. He is a strong believer that the Nature Aquarium is not only a great teacher but has the uniqueness of bringing together Art and Life in the same space- this being his greatest inspiration & motivation to be a part of the Wonderful World of Nature Aquariums & Aquascaping.
In his words- “The goal is to educate, inspire and motivate the masses to learn & understand the importance of Mother Nature and The Natural World, for, without this, we as a species and all other living beings shall seize to exist.”
Mr. Anas Antony
Gallery Nurture Administrator
Hailing from a beautiful village nestled among the mist-clad mountains of the Western Ghats, he carries his love for nature wherever he goes. Studied Engineering and had a career in the software and services industry, he chose to stay close to nature by stepping in as a hobbyist to the world of Nature Aquariums. After experiencing the kind of joy, the hobby gave, he took a life-changing decision to turn passion to profession.
He is someone who has always had fishes as his cherished pets from his childhood and he finds immense joy in creating and nurturing better habitats for the fishes to live in. The peace, tranquillity and magical alignment of all sorts of lifeforms in the wild is what made him truly interested in nature and its wonders. He believes that ecological balance is a miracle and every chance to protect, preserve or recreate it is nothing less than celebrating Mother Nature. Be it by exploring the wild, nature photography, gardening, fish keeping, or Aquascaping and maintaining aquascapes…for him, the door to happiness is always Nature.
Joining us from the city of forts- ‘Chitradurga’ which is better known for the fact that it is a “Fort, a Stone Fort” with great historical significance.
He has always been very passionate about animals from a very young age and still is. Being a graduate from the College of fisheries- Mangalore, in Ichthyology, he has learnt so much about fish- the reason they are so colourful and beautiful and this was the beginning of his journey to becoming an ichthyologist.
During his childhood he and his friends used to visit some local wells and ponds to catch fish and taking them home to their tanks was an adventure That will forever remain a part of his most cherished memories. This is how it all started, the connection between Mother Nature and himself as he tells his story.
Since his teenage years he wanted to pursue a career in fisheries so he signed-up to complete his Bachelors of fisheries science degree.
The Love towards Nature aquariums all started by watching a documentary called ‘Blue Planet’ which was narrated by none other than ‘Sir David Attenborough’ and through videos by and of ‘Takashi Amano San- the Father of Nature Aquariums’, setting up the best Nature Aquariums around the world and in Japan most importantly. To add, his Uncle, who started building his own nature aquarium also helped him get all the more interested.
In his words: In the present-day scenario, as humans, we have damaged the planet in such a horrible way, that Mother Nature is finding it so difficult to heal. He wants to educate the youth and coming generations to understand how Mother Nature is important to us that we have only one planet, there is no “Planet B”.
A mentor’s words that have great meaning to him and he made it a point to mention for this write-up and i.e. “Mother Nature will only connect with the purest souls”.
