    I think that a talk, with photodetails, some videos, a projector, a Q&A, that covers filtration, choosing good fish, identifying the good breeders, and the different types of Discus and Angels available, would be something really beneficial to the hobby..

    There are plenty halls to rent in Cape Town, and tickets can be purchased online, so that we ensure that everybody wins, the tutor, and the learners..

    OK, well then we can work towards this somewhere in the New Year, say March or April.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Sean and Angus,

    OK, it sounds like we should perhaps aim to sort of plan a meeting that would take a full day with some lectures and some hands on demonstrations here in Somerset West to show you how it should be done. I think a small group of 8-10 persons would be good and if there are more, then one should repeat this at a later stage. Perhaps we should meet on a Saturday or Sunday over a weekend, what do you think?

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    Hi Dirk,

    Not sure if this is an open discussion or just between the three of you but weekends would be great from my side and I would definitely attend :thumb:

    Thanks

    No this is an open question to all that may be interested, including everyone in other words.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk
