This year the Perth Cichlid Society has organised another international guest speaker. On Tuesday, March 7th, we will have discus guru and international competition judge Andrew Soh deliver some talks. This will be on our regular meeting night for March at Atwell College which is located at 201 Brenchley Drive, Atwell, WA 6167. It should be a fun packed evening with raffles, discus show table, prizes, beautiful discus on display from Na Discus and Forest Discus and much more.

Andrew Soh is regarded one of the best in the world in regards to discus . The man is a wealth of knowledge and has written books widely praised and welcomed by the serious discus community. His books include 'Discus: The Naked Truth' and 'Discus: Problems and Solutions'. Andrew will be available if you wish to get your books signed by the master himself. Andrew has been a judge at discus shows for many years all around the world and knows exactly what makes the perfect fish.

You can ask Andrew all your questions on discus and enjoy his 2 talks for the evening - Selecting the Best Discus and Discus Diseases and Treatments. There will be a break in between to take a rest, enjoy the competitions and prizes and grab some food and drinks. Check out the discus on display, view the show table entries, bid on our discus fish auction and FoTM, grab some raffle tickets.. it's gonna be a huge night.

 

We will ask Andrew to judge our discus show table competition for that night with prizes for EVERY entrant. The winner will grab a $50 voucher for Pet Magic to spend and some goods from our sponsors. Entries also have a chance to win some nice discus fish to add to their collection. Yes, you read that correctly we will have some discus as prizes for the show table competition. Send a PM to Chris (Sajica) if you wish to bring a discus along to enter.
