Pisciculture presented by PETstock
Queensland's aquarium enthusiasts come together for the Royal Queensland Show’s Pisciculture Competition presented by PETstock. A diverse variety of breeds are judged including common goldfish, fighting fish, exotic tropical and freshwater fish as well as crustaceans, amphibians and even aquatic plants.
The popular fighting fish will return for their second year, with over 400 entries received across 34 classes in 2017!
Two international judges were also flown over from Thailand (where fighting fish originated) for judging. The competitive fish were marked on five qualities, including aggression. Some international competitors even brought their prized fighting fish over from Thailand to compete in this aquatic face off.
There will be plenty to see with the entries on display in the Royal ICC throughout Ekka. Drop by and check out all the vibrant colours, the range of sizes and especially the more unique varieties.
