Talks

For many years I’m visiting aquarium associations, specialist shops and trade fairs and give lectures at their events.

On this website I would now like to offer an overview of my lectures.
Here you will find lectures from a length of about 15 minutes up to two hours, just as it fits into your schedule. You are also welcome to combine several shorter ones to a larger presentation.

Furthermore, you can also put together different parts of my lectures for new lectures – just ask me and we will find a good solution.
I have already made various trips to South America (Peru, Suriname, Venezuela, Brazil, …). There I was on fish-fishing expeditions, but also visited exporters, aquarium shops and also private and professional breeders. Furthermore, I have of course also written numerous articles published in the popular aquarium or club magazines, so I have, for example, presented in the DATZ many new L-Numbers.

My presentations are given as “live lectures” using PowerPoint and last, according to your wishes, 15 to 120 minutes.

I also like to come to your aquarium club, shop, or your event around the world and present something from my program.

If you are interested, just send me an email and we will discuss everything else …

Yours Andreas Tanke

For more than 10 years I have been working as a specialist author and speaker in aquaristics. My main topic is the ichthyofauna of South America, especially the plecos and dwarf cichlids.

I hold my lectures at meetings or events of aquarium associations, specialized shops or at trade fairs at home and abroad.

Recently I was on a three-week lecture tour in the US, but I also like to come to your aquarium club, whether it's a small gathering or an event with several hundred participants.
