  1. 3rd Edition by Ad Konings WAS $129.95, NOW ONLY $59.95!!!! AND you can still use your QLDAF discount!!!!!! WOW 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 coloration. 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. And 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 behavior of these cichlids.

  3. Deal of the Day - Tropheus in their Natural Habitat. The latest book from Ad Konings. Today only at the incredibly low price of only $25.00. Here is a rundown, A Major New book on Tropheus by Ad Konings. 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 coloration, 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. Behaviorists have, however, discovered that Tropheus species exhibit unique breeding behavior not recorded from any other group of cichlids. Their behavior in the wild, as you will read in this book, 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 this book 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. 160 pages, 300 color photos, hardcover, and size: 7" x 9.5" (17.5 x 24.5 cm).

  5. Went for a Sunday drive to Tincan bay/Rainbowbeach and stopped at Searys Creek in the Great Sandy National Park for a swim and snorkel. Ornate rainbowfish Rhadinocentrus ornatus were abundant and in many different colour variations along with gudgeons, eels huge and small, crayfish and shrimp. Such a beautiful area. tried to get some decent video but the little buggers are so quick
