Finally after two weeks of hard work i find the opportunity to tell you about my experience in the Italian show.....First of all i would like to thank Francesco Denitto one of my Italian hosts for his hospitality and heartwarming effort to assist me in any way..... The discus contest was amazing with over 100 perfect fish from Italy and Poland. During the contest i had the opportunity to attend interesting seminars by Heiko Bleher and Dr. Gobels..... Nevertheless the food and the city were amazing and the whole experience pleasant beyond my expectation.......
