Animal Scene - - ANIMALS ON THE SCENE - Pho­tos by JEF­FREY C. LIM

Fish lovers were play­fully in­vited to get ready to rum­ble by the Philip­pine Arowana and Lou Han So­ci­ety (PALHS), which re­cently hosted its yearly Royal Rum­ble event at the Green­hills Shop­ping Cen­ter.

Known for be­ing the first to host shows that wel­come not only fish hob­by­ists but also those for crea­tures such as rep­tiles and ham­sters, the an­nual show fea­tured betta, gold­fish, gup­pies, ci­ch­lids, dat­noids, and bichirs. This was in line with PALHS’ ob­jec­tive to pro­mote re­spon­si­ble pet breed­ing and keep­ing.

With the ul­ti­mate goal of be­com­ing a bench­mark regional event such as those flocked to by in­ter­na­tional fish hob­by­ists from across the world, PALHS is en­cour­ag­ing par­tic­i­pants and mem­bers alike to work to­wards the im­prove­ment of the qual­ity of the fish dis­played. But like any other suc­cess­ful event, it as­sem­bled pet lovers to­gether and fos­tered bond­ing across hob­bies by pro­vid­ing a venue where they could meet and share their ex­pe­ri­ences.

The grand raf­fle win­ner of the Arowana raf­fle of an Aroking­dom Su­per Red, courtesy of Aquatic Im­ports and Nueva Pet­shop, was Bryan Lim.
