PVAS June meeting - Discus Hans

Post  verbal on Thu May 29, 2014 9:07 am

Discus Hans, "The Top 5 Myths about Keeping Discus"

Discus Hans has been breeding Discus fish since 1982. In those internet contests which were held from 1997 'till 2000 Discus Hans was chosen to be the best Discus breeder worldwide. In 2002, Hans partnered with Stendker Discus, the largest Discus hatchery in Europe, to bring Discus of unparalleled quality into the United States. With an appearance at the 2003 ACA in Cincinatti, Hans and the Stendker Discus fish surprised everyone. "This quality hasn't been seen for years in the USA" was one of the frequently heard remarks. Hans has the very special mission of promoting the high quality German bred Discus in the USA. Discus remain something of a mystery to many aquarists, with many myths about their husbandry. However, there is no doubt that these beautiful, elegant freshwater fish are the true "Kings of the Aquarium."

Please visit the Discus Hans website at http://discus-hans-usa.com, and join us Saturday to listen to Hans present on these fascinating fishes and learn why the top 5 myths about keeping Discus are just that - Myths.

Join us for the presentation, raffles, refreshments, a door-prize and our (not-so-mini) mini-auction.

PVAS meetings are held at the following location in the cafeteria:

Green Acres School
4401 Sideburn Road
Fairfax, Virginia 22030

Generally speakers won't allow their presentations to be taped. It might be worth checking with James River Aquarium Society if they are able to bring him down as a speaker. I think expect that he and his fish will be at the Catfish Convention in October.

I haven't watched the video, but apparently he was interviewed by John from K&G Tropicals:
