3 Konings, Ad Malawi Cichlids in their Natural Habitat, 5th edition
1932892230 / 9781932892239 New
 
Fifth (revised) edn., 2016. 28cm. Pp.432. 1760 photos (mostly colour). Hardbound.

Malawi Cichlids in their Natural Habitat, 5th edition. The fifth, revised, edition of the definitive study of Lake Malawi cichlids.

No lake in the world contains such a diversified and distinctive community of cichlid fishes as Lake Malawi. The total number of cichlid species in the lake is now estimated at about 1000, which is about 200 more than all the freshwater fish species of the North American Continent combined! And there is every indication that still more remain to be discovered.

This fifth, revised, edition of the definitive study of Lake Malawi cichlids discusses and illustrates more species than any previous publication. Basing his study on more than 1700 hours of underwater observations all over the lake, the author characterizes the species by their habitat preference, distribution, feeding and breeding behaviour, and colouration. More than 1750 excellent photographs illustrate the cichlid fauna of the entire lake. Almost all of these photographs were taken in the lake and show the fishes in their natural habitat.

Over the years Malawi cichlids, which are among the most colourful freshwater fishes known, have become very popular among aquarists as they are easy to maintain and breed in captivity. And in recent years an ever-increasing number of aquarists, interested in the natural environment of their fishes, have been inspired to visit Malawi and observe the cichlids in the lake itself. Only those who have done so can truly understand the exhilaration and feeling of fulfillment this entails, but this book offers everyone a unique opportunity to share a little of that enjoyment.

4 Konings, Ad Tanganyika Cichlids in their Natural Habitat, 3rd edition
1932892184 / 9781932892185 New
 
Third (revised) edn., 2015. 29cm. Pp.408. 1760 photos (mostly colour).Hard bound.

For more than a century the cichlids of Lake Tanganyika have been a focus of scientific attention, and many interesting facts regarding fish behaviour have been learned from study of this complex fish community. During the last five decades almost all of the 219 known species have become available in the aquarium hobby, and most of them have proved to be excellent aquarium residents, allowing aquarists to make a considerable contribution to our knowledge of these fishes through observations in captivity.

This third, revised, edition of the definitive study of Lake Tanganyika cichlids discusses and illustrates more species than any previous publication. Basing his study on more than 750 hours of underwater observations all over the lake, the author characterizes the species by their habitat preferences, distribution, feeding and breeding behavior, and colouration.

The more than 1200 photos illustrate all known Tanganyika cichlids, and the majority were taken in the lake, portraying the fish in their natural habitat. The wealth of information on the natural environment this book contains will render it increasingly possible to maintain each species in the most natural way, allowing it to behave as if it were in the lake. Only by thus duplicating their normal environment can we expect to be treated to the natural behaviour of these beautiful and interesting fishes.

5 Konings, Ad The Cichlids of the Lake Malawi National Park
978932892222 New
 
2015. 24cm. Pp.288. 650 colour photos. Softbound.

The Cichlids of the Lake Malawi National Park provides detailed profiles for 218 cichlid species each represented by photographs of both male and female fish for easy recognition. Detailed characters are given to distinguish between the various forms that look alike. Almost all the photos were taken in the lake, and the information given is based on the authorís observation, over a period of more than 30 year, of these cichlids in their natural habitat.

6 Konings, Ad Tropheus in their Natural Habitat
1932892125 / 9781932892123 New
 
2013. 25cm. Pp.160. 300 colour photos. Hardbound.

Cichlids of the genus Tropheus have fascinated aquarists since they were first exported from Lake Tanganyika in the late 1950s. It may have been their "unconventional" shape, or the fact that females brood their offspring to a relatively large size inside their mouths, that initially appealed to hobbyists. They are still some of the most popular cichlids kept in aquaria.

Over the years much has been said about their incredible diversity of colouration, with almost any new area collected in the Lake resulting in new variants, and the emphasis in the aquarium literature has almost always been on the number of variants, morphs, or species that exist in the lake.

Behaviourists have, however, discovered that Tropheus species exhibit unique breeding behaviour not recorded from any other group of cichlids. Their behaviour in the wild is ruled by ecological factors that cannot realistically be duplicated in the aquarium, and for this reason these fish behave rather differently in captivity.

The information in Tropheus in their Natural Habitat is based on observations in the wild and almost all photographs were taken in the lake and show the fishes in their natural habitat.

Contents: Introduction, Lake Tanganyika, Maps, The Genus, The Species, Geographical Variation, Territory, Feeding, Breeding, Classification, In the Aquarium, References, Index.
