48.º Convenção da DKG
May 10 to May 13, 2018
Schlossstraße 18-25, D-85411 Hohenkammer
Tel. 00 49 8137 9340
Participation in the Show does not depend on a DKG membership. Everyone is allowed to participate under the following listed conditions.
Only killifishes are accepted. Offspring from crossings of distinct species (hybrids) must not be exposed. Either pairs (one male and one female, hermaphrodites in the form of two specimens) or breeding groups (three pairs or two males and four females) can be exposed. In case more specimens are sent in, only the best pair or breeding group, respectively, will be judged.
As soon as fish are sent to the exhibition, these automatically become property of the DKG. They will be auctioned at the last day of the Convention in favour of the DKG. The revenue of the auction serves to cover the costs of the Convention.
The fish will be exposed in plastic tanks corresponding to the new version of the „Protection of Animals Act“. The water readings will be about 13.2° total German Hardness, pH value about 7.5. In case fish are sent in that have to be kept with certain additions, this has to be noted on the transportation recipient (additions used if necessary: salt, strong acidification or others).
Fish for the Show must be registered not later than April 27, 2018 in written form at:
Lothringer Weg 35a
Please register your fish in good time which facilitates the classification of the groups in the Show. Please communicate changes immediately.
Due to the increasingly complicated import conditions (Customs, veterinary certificates), it is recommended to abstain from shipments from abroad by plane or parcel; however the DKG deeply regrets this situation. It is undoubtedly better to transport the fish personally and if necessary give these to killie friends attending the Convention.
Fish that have been registered for the Show can be deposited directly at the Convention not later than Thursday, May 10, 2018, 14:00 h. There is no guarantee that fish deposited after this point of time will be judged.
Please pack fish carefully and generously. Although we try to put all fish into the show tanks as quickly as possible, in case of high numbers of fish this procedure may take some time.
Transport recipients must be labelled as follows:
Genus, species, and if necessary subspecies as well as population / location name or code, the complete name of the sender, and the name of the killifish association or the DKG membership number, respectively. Please write readable and use a water-permanent and abrasion-resistant marker!
The fish will be classified in the following 15 groups:
Group 01 Eurasian killies
Group 02 Northamerican killies
Group 03 Small Rivulus
Group 04 Large Rivulus
Group 05 Southamerican Annuals
Group 06 Nothobranchius, Pronothobranchius, and Fundulosoma
Group 07 Fundulopanchax gardneri Group
Group 08 All other Fundulopanchax and Raddaella
Group 09 Aphyosemion calliurum Group
Group 10 Diapteron, Kathethys, and Aphyosemion elegans Group
Group 11 Chromaphyosemion
Group 12 All other small Aphyosemion species
Group 13 Former Roloffia = Scriptaphyosemion, Callopanchax, Archiaphyosemion, Nimbapanchax
Group 14 Epiplatys, Aplocheilus, Pachypanchax
Group 15 Lampeyes and Oryzias
The breeding groups will be integrated in these groups 1 to 15.
Two judges will give points to the exposed fish in the various groups. The minimum is 1 point, the maximum is 10 points. Fish will not be judged (abbreviation „k. B.“ = keine Bewertung = not judged) if the criteria (for instance number of males / females) are not given or a disease has been detected. The prizes for the first three places and the best breeding group will be given to those fish with the highest number of points.
The decision of the judges is unimpeachable!
The first three places of adult fish in each group as well as the best breeding group will win a prize and a certificate. The following special prizes will be presented: „Best of Show“, „Best foreign fish“, „Best Chromaphyosemion“, „Best Breeding Group“. Foreign killifish associations are asked to announce their special awards in good time.
Each exhibitor receives a free show list.
Following the by-laws of the DKG, trading fish, peat with eggs, technical equipment, and so on is not allowed in the Show Room and other rooms of the Convention.
