Covers the genera Danios, Devarios, Danionella, Microdevario, Betadevario, Microrasbora, Chela, Laubuca, Esomus, Sundadanio and Paedocypris and includes many of the the Danionins that are available in the aquatic hobby which have yet to be described (these are known under various common names such as ‘Himalayan yellow fin Devario’ and ‘Danio sp Hikari’ and are familiar to aquarists). Foreward by Sven Kullander and the chapter ‘The Scientific Study of Danionins' contributed by Ralf Britz. Includes information on the aquarium care and breeding and one specific chapter dealing with the breeding of Danionella translucida. Essential reference.
Updated edition : Since this book was published in December 2010 there have been a number of additions.
Devario annandalei was inadvertently missed out from the original manuscript and is now included, along with photographs of Devario acrostomus and Devario kakheinensis.
The account for Devario neilgherrensis is updated with a new page and picture.
A new species, Danio kysonensis is added although real information is sparse.
There are now no less than seven species of Sundadanio described and reference to these is included.
All of the above additions and amendments have been incorporated into these copies.
