Lake Victoria Rock Cichlids
by Ole Seehausen
This is the first popular book about Lake Victoria cichlids, and it reports
about a species assemblage that is largely new to aquarists and scientists
alike. The 173 species discussed constitute a Mbuna-like group of
Lake Victoria cichlids, that was previously believed not to exist!
Most emphasis is laid upon the presentation of the various species-complexes
and species, with much new information about distribution, ecology, and
behaviour in their natural environment. For this purpose underwater work
using SCUBA was done for the first time in lake Victoria. High time therefore
to look at Lake Victoria's rock cichlids more carefully....
The book is illustrated with 400 colour photos, maps, and drawings. It
has 304 pages, a hardcover, and a size of 6" x 9.5".
