Romania – Bucarest, June 2008
Mihai Victor is a young Romanian aquarist who with the age of 14 started to keep fishes and with 20 (before he turned 21) participated in the first International aquascape competition in Hannover, Germany, in 2008. He has also built up and decorated a very unique biotope exhibition in Bucarest. This talented aquarist organized also the first Professional Aquarist Exhibition and Conference, and knowing about the work of Heiko Bleher, he has invited him to hold the very first aquaristic seminars in Romania (see Lectures in Romania ).
Mihai Victor’s aquatic exhibition is located at the Natural History Museul of Bucarest ”Grigore Antipa” in the heart of Bucarest, Romania
With an exhibition of about 25 beautifully decorated aquariums he is the main attraction for aquarium fishes and plant lovers in Romania today.
Here below a few of his unique biotope aquariums:
One can see biotopes from different parts of the world, even from temperate zones in Romania, the Danube delta and authentic biotope from the Black Sea, as well as tropical marine (Indo-Pacific) habitats. Below a few of his beautiful fishes in these biotopes, where many are already propagating as they “feel at home” …like this pair of Nannostomus beckfordi…
…or like the temperate fishes from Romania, below:
His mother (below with Natasha) and father help him very much and Bucarest is a cosmopolitan city as many other cities around the world today. Here are a few photos:
The Liberation square is where Romanian dictator and communist leader Nicolae Ceauşescu had his last speech on 21st December 1989, before he was executed 4 days later
…but today he is history in Romania (and elsewhere) such as Marx, Engels and Lenin
