Fish Groups

Tetra-Symposium 2017 is over

This weekend about 30 tetra enthusiasts were meeting in Ahrbergen, Germany for the first Tetra-Symposium of the IG BSSW. There was a lot of talk shop, new contacts were established, fishes were exchanged and on both evenings we talked late into the night over a beer, even with some spontaneous presentations. Thanks to all participants and especially to the speakers that have made the convention a full success! Overall, the feedback was very positive. Most of the participants agreed to meet again next year already and we will try to make that possible. The date will be posted as soon as we scheduled it. An in-depth report will be published in the BSSW-Report soon, stay tuned!
