International L-Number-Days 2023 in Hanover!

Herewith we would like to invite you to the 7th International L-Number-Days, which will take place again near Hannover from October 20 to 22, 2023.

Finally L-Number-Days again!

The covid pandemic has presented us all with great challenges and unfortunately we had to do without major events for a long time. Also aquaristic major events were unthinkable in the last two years, for this reason we now have some catching up to do. We are very happy to be able to hold L-Number-days again in 2023 and numerous ichthyologists and aquarists have announced their participation for this. We look forward to the reunion of loricariid catfish enthusiasts from around the world. Since many L-catfish imported in earlier years are now rarely or never imported, it is now more important than ever for the international aquarium community to form a network to communicate and exchange breeding and offspring. The L-Catfish Days are the ideal opportunity for this, because we all want to keep this great variety of species in our aquariums as long as possible. To promote this we offer an online catfish exchange again this year.

Science and Hobby

With this event we want to bring science and hobby together again and with our planned lectures we will try to offer a balanced mixture of contributions. And so we will be informed again about new findings of ichthyologists, will accompany loricariid catfishes in their natural habitats and above all the aquaristic aspects should not be neglected again. We will have a number of presentations by breeders to round off the program. We hope that you will like our program again.

Convention again at Hannover

As venue we could again win the Hotel Hennies in Isernhagen near Hannover, which can be reached from all over the world. We were able to negotiate good conditions with the hotel, which should be affordable for most interested parties even in these difficult times. So we can surely expect participants from far away countries again, which is the special attraction of this event. We are looking forward to seeing you all again and would like to thank all those who have confirmed their attendance. Many thanks especially to all sponsors, who make the L-Number-Days in this form possible. The basic structure of the lectures is already fixed with well-known speakers, who promise again a really interesting and varied program. We will publish the exact program as soon as all details are clarified. We hope that the 7th International L-Number-Days will again be as interesting and successful and would be very happy to welcome you!
