    Ok.. I have met him a couple of times, and saw some of his talks, which are out of this world. Not only for discus, but also for South American fish, and his various world trips..

    There are a couple of people I would like to bring to Cape Town, such as Claus, Chris L (the shrimp guy), and many others.. just need to figure out the market and logistics.. :)

    For Discus Heiko is surely the top man, and he has written many books on the subject.

    Great.. It may be still a dream in the pipeline, but I would like to set some sort of small conference in the western cape, with talks, videos, maybe a scape or two, and hopefully allow some traders to pitch in and sell their wares in stands... This for mid 2014.

    Perhaps a road show would also work? Gauteng would definitely benefit from something like this as well.

    Yeah, why not? a road trip, two or three areas.. Each region to sort his own area out.

    Yes, that sort of stuff.. Amano and others can make a difference.. He is a true show performer, saw three of his shows, and although they were similar I was not bored one bit.

    Hi Luis,
    Heiko is a member here at APSA.
    Maybe you or some of the moderators can invite him to give us a article now and them

    I will definitely like to attend. I was reading on some of his travels etc a while ago and thought that this was somebody I would like to meet. I would really love to still have the opportunity to work in the freshwater ecology field some or other time.
