Just an FYI:

Heiko will be doing 3 biotope tanks at the convention

1) Native fishes and decor

2)New Guinea biotope - I believe it will be Lake Holmes: Chilatherina bleheri

3) Discus - Rio Nhamundá. (Heckels)

Also, I’m attaching a photo of the plaque that the North American Discus Association sent for the CAOAC’s discus class in the show. It’s a wonderful Blue Diamond discus on the award. I personally think it’s something to try for as an award at the show!
