Back-to-Nature guide to Tanganyika
by Ad Konings
Tanganyika cichlids are the most interesting aquarium fishes known today.
More than any other group of aquarium fishes, they have evoked great passion
among hobbyists. They provide aquarists with a combination of attractive
fishes, interesting behavior, and easy maintenance. In order to enjoy your
Tanganyika cichlid aquarium to the full, however, it is essential to take
their specific maintenance requirements into account. This new guide provides
expert advice on all the elements of proper maintenance, such as choice
of aquarium (with details of the minimum size and capacity required for
each species discussed), creating the correct water conditions, providing
appropriate decor, feeding, breeding, common diseases, etc.
This book is a revised and greatly expanded version of the Tanganyika
cichlids guide published in this series in 1996. It contains several new
chapters and the number of photos has doubled to about 600. This guide
provides an overview of all the species that have become available to the
hobby and comprehensive information on how to keep them in the best possible
way. Two detailed foldout maps and the numerous outstanding photos make
this guide indispensable for anyone interested in these exciting fishes.
