    There were actually quite a lot of exhibitor's Liz. Besides Hans, we have Peter Low (Singapore), Kai Mei (US), Francis Hu (UK), Al Castro (US), Hugo of Santarém Discus (wilds), Gold Coast Aquatics (US, Ricky Lim), Larry Bugg and others. Perhaps Keith, Rick or someone can list some others.

    They are all so beautiful.

    When I try to take my discus photo, they all try to face the camera like wanting me to take their mugshot...
    Water change is not just a chore, it's my life now...

    That is because they want you to feed them. Feed them then grab a chair and sit with your face about level with the tank and watch them for a while. Soon they will forget you are there and snap away.

    Am I the only one disappointed with the quality of most of these discus? I feel like Nada sadly isn't what it used to be. Honestly, I think alot of hobbyists have far better fish than most of the ones at NADA. To give some sort of idea of quality as to whats going around, hear are some pics of discus from a retailer hear in Australia. And these are retail fish on the open market, not show winning discus. It seems that the discus at NADA aren't even as nice as half the discus going around in retail.

    Zac, as secretary of NADA we put on the show and folks bring fish to display at the show. The purpose of NADA is to help educate people about discus. We work very hard to put on the show every two years with lots of time and effort of many folks to make the show a success. The show is way more then just about the fish...it's the people meeting and making relations which last a lifetime...it's about the speakers to come to help make people aware about various aspects of discus keeping etc etc. I consider this show very successful. There were some very nice fish there and to truly determine the quality you really needed to be at the show to see the fish in person.
