Re:[AGA-Member] Ben and Ricky Update
We all surely had a great time at the Nature Aquarium Party !
I myself enjoyed getting acquainted with and talking with
Oliver, Luca, Georgio, Hajime, Yoshinori (the latter two guys
are ADA staff members. Both are real nice guys ) and some
other people. Oliver taught me a lot of aquatic matters. Luca
is a real friendly, good- natured man. Georgio who happened
to be a judge of the layout contest this year, too, as a
recognized authority, did a good job, I guess. He is very
friendly and enthusiastic, too.
You know something ? Ricky did a excellent job in the rock
arrangement contest, completing the aquascaping in a 17 gallon
tank with several rocks and some bright sand in 40 minutes
wearing a pair of cotton work gloves in the party hall.
Yes, It's 6 competitor's improvisation that matters. Ricky
won the prize of 2nd place !!
Of course, He gained a fabulous prize of the winner, electric
The most " busy man " was Ben. Listening to both comments for
each competitor's aquascaping given by the judges on the
podium and the 6 contestant's behaviors in the back of the
audience at the same time.
Walking around here and there, back and forth, taking hundreds
of pictures with his big digital camera. You'll be able to
take a look at all the pics pretty soon. Just wait !!
After the short bus tour in central Tokyo, which I didn't
attend ) we all gathered to an well known aquarium shop in
the very heart of ginza, named " An aquarium " owned by
Noriyuki Shito, a student of Mr. Amano.
They all seemed to be getting the feel of the nice cozy
store and getting into the spirit of Noriyuki's collection,
sophisticated aquatic plants, dwarf chiclids and ADA products.
They are getting ready for the tour to Niigata where they
have huge Nature Aquarium Gallery
and big biotope in it's backyard. leaving Tokyo tomorrow
morning. I have never been there
before and I'm so jealous !! I couldn't get the day off for
Have a good night sleep, Ricky, Ben, relaxing.
Now let's enjoy Ben and Ricky's " Japan Report with pics "
together, everyone !!
It's coming soon.
