About this book

Language: German

Since their debut in the aquarium world, the Aphyos, representatives of the former collective genus Aphyosemion, attract aquarists with their bewitching display of colours and their amazing biology. They are wrongly considered to be difficult and short-lived fish. Aphyos are very hardy and, with a little effort, easy-to-keep killifish. This book contains the necessary knowledge. Dieter Ott shows how keeping and breeding can be enjoyable and lead to success based on specific information from his own long-standing aquarium practice.

Wondering why the Aphyos species change their name so often? Would you like to decide yourself about the name of the fish you care for? For this, the author gives you the necessary arguments, because for many species the names are currently being discussed in the scientific literature.

This is a practical guide to the successful keeping and breeding of the pretty and biologically very interesting African rivulines.

Summary in German:
Seit ihrem Einzug in die Aquarien ziehen die Aphyos, Vertreter der ehemaligen Sammelgattung Aphyosemion, mit ihrem betörenden Farbspiel und ihrer erstaunlichen Biologie die Liebhaber in ihren Bann. Zu Unrecht hängt ihnen das Vorurteil an, schwierige und kurzlebige Pfleglinge zu sein. Aphyos sind gut haltbare und mit etwas Mühe erfolgreich zu züchtende Killifische. Die nötigen Kenntnisse dafür vermittelt dieses Buch. Wie Haltung und Zucht Freude bereiten und zum Erfolg führen können, zeigt Dieter Ott anhand von konkreten Hinweisen aus der eigenen langjährigen Aquarienpraxis.

Fragen Sie sich, warum die Aphyos-Arten so oft ihren Namen wechseln? Möchten Sie selbst über die Bezeichnung Ihrer Pfleglinge entscheiden? Dafür gibt Ihnen der Autor die nötigen Argumente in die Hand, denn für viele Zweifelsfälle benennt er, worüber derzeit in der Wissenschaft diskutiert wird.

Ein praktischer Ratgeber bei der erfolgreichen Haltung und Zucht der hübschen und biologisch äußerst interessanten Prachtkärpflinge
