Sorry... The BAF (British Aquaria Festival) is one of the biggest, if not the biggest fish show in Britain. If memory serves me correctly, some of the trophies that can be won are as big if not bigger than the Stanley Cup. I was at one show in the north of England and the trophy for Best Fish in Show was at least four feet high and the BFS was a Sail Fin Mollie. When you think ofthe size of the fish to the size of the trophy, it's quite remarkable. This show brings all Aquarist from all over and of all ages (five years old and up). The quality of fish is spectactular and the knowledge base is tremendous. If you ever had a question about any kind of fish (it would be at the BAF) you just go to that booth and talk to all the people ahnging around there. Unbelievable!!!!! Whenever i went, i would first make a list out of questions not matter how silly they sounded; remember the people gathered at each different booth probably had the total of more than 100 years of fishkeeping experience, something you wouldn't find in a book.. The only thing that a lot of people did not like about it was the fact that the festival was in a different place each time so if you were in the north of England or even Scotland it was quite a journey to say London. Another year it could be held up in the northern parts of England. Sorry, i could go on for hours just on the festival alone.

Thanks Judd for explaining that. I have never heard of it and sounds huge and amazing. I imagine there were lots of things to spend your money on too at that event. Gives you an opportunity to see things face to face, like when comparing lighting or sumps or heaters. lol.

We'll have you out buying a tank in no time!! lol

Yeh, you can spend lots of money. Then have all kinds of aquarium product companies there selling their products at very reasonable prices to get you hooked.

Smile Just getting started in Discus

Hi All,

I have 6.0 ph with a r/o machine and 125 gal tank. Have not yet purchased my Discus. Had to correct my ph. My other tank is very happy with my water and ph of 8.5 for African Cyclids in my 55 gal. tank.Any and all suggestions appreciated. I have a book on Discus and have been doing research for a month on the net. Well water.
