Dr. Schmidt-Focke Prize given for the first time in history

Post by Heiko Bleher » 10 Oct 2010, 12:00

Hi guys,

hope you all are well and busy getting souber from Duisburg....
As some of you know I was very busy with travels since August 28th til Ocober 5th, collecting in Guangxi Province (123 species in 3 days, including amazing blind cave fishes), with seminars in Shanghai, Nagoya, Tokyo, Prague, Pensacola, nature aquariums and lectures in Duisburg (some saw it and how my dishes spawned the first day...) and at the NapoliAquatica just before Duisburg where I also judged Discus at their greatest Championships - which is probably now, after Dusiburg, the largest Diiscus Contest in the world. See also under:
http://www.aquapress-bleher.com/index.p ... 5&Itemid=1" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
and more of it in the future on my website.

With me in Nepals, was judging Andrew Soh (Singapore), Jeffrey Tan (Malaysia), Sebastiano Solano (Italy), Sergey Goryushkin (Russia) Andrzej Sieniawski (Poland) and Patrik Hilsenbek (Germany) - some of the best judges this world has seen.

At this amazing show and competition I also gave 2 lectures and 25,000 vistors appreciated this largest Aquatic Show in Italy and possibly the 2nd largest in the world, after the yearly event in Duisburg's (which atracts in average 30,000 visitors, this year is was 29,000 Banazak just told me).

But the highlight at NapoliAquatica was "The Dr. Schmidt-Focke Prize".

For the first time in history, in memory of
"The Father of the Discus Breeding" – the man to whom we owe most of the breeding strains of discus this world has today (he bred and stablished unique strains over decades from the very begin only with the best animals I brought back, since the mid 1960s into the late 1990s) was handed out. And I must say I was very honored to receive it. This prize (Trophy) touched me more than any other of the many awards and prizes given to me in my life time.

The great guys from the Greek Aquazone forum just published the video, I wanted to share with you:

Congratulations for the prize Heiko. You are really worth it and the video is great. I thought I noticed a little tear-drop. I had loved to be there.
