The 19 and 20 October 2019 took place the second edition of the competition organized by Heiko Bleher in the Italian city of Piacenza. And in each event, a Grand Champion discus was designated…
A competition held within the event "Pet Festival", as the name suggests brought together exhibitors from throughout the animal universe.
And it is among the sixty presented aquariums that the jury found his favorite discus.
To my knowledge, competitors came from Greece and Italy with two representatives each; from France, Austria, and Czech Republic respectively with one participant each.
More fear than harm…
Indeed according to several sources; upon arrival the participants found half full or empty aquariums.
"Little anguish" for participants.
A problem in the organization that was run by all participants and judges who came to help. They can be proud of having been able to react to this situation.
Congratulations to them, a good example of solidarity. They have shown that the health of their animals was the most important thing.
Therefore, you will understand; it was not easy to take pictures. At the same time I would like to thank Christian Kubitschka, Peris Kotsiropoulos, Jackie Tran, Sune Lindblom an Andrea Andreas for their shares.
