1 Seegers, Lothar The Catfishes of Africa, A Handbook for Identification and Maintenance
3936027838 / 9783936027839 New
2008. 24cm. Pp.608. 1100 colour photos, numerous figures and maps. Hardbound.

African catfishes are a particularly diverse group of fishes. However, only a few of them have gained a permanent place in the aquarium hobby, mainly because they are inadequately known and have to date been imported only in limited numbers.

The Catfishes of Africa should at least alleviate the first of these problems and demonstrate just how varied and interesting African catfishes are.

This book is, as far as it is known, the first to present an overview of the entire African catfish group, and many of the photos illustrate the species in question for the very first time. New species are yet to be discovered and others may be known but remain undescribed.

The Catfishes of Africa includes much valuable information on habitats, care and spawning.

Price: 78.99 GBP
