About this book

Language: German

In addition to angelfish and the neon tetra, piranhas are certainly the most famous fish of the South American subcontinent. The mere name of this fish will trigger memories of sensational reports on their dangerousness and aggressiveness, which are spread through popular fiction and adventure films. In this book, fact and fiction, and reality and fables will be separated. It discusses piranhas in their natural habitat, but also the conditions under which piranhas can be successfully held in the aquarium, and perhaps even bred.

Summary in German:
Neben Skalaren und Neosalmlern sind Piranhas sicherlich die bekanntesten Fische des südamerikanischen Subkontinentes. Mit dem Namen dieser Fische verbinden sich Erinnerungen an sensationelle Berichte über ihre Gefährlichkeit und Angriffslust, die durch Unterhaltungsliteratur und Abenteuerfilme verbreitet werden. In diesem Buch sollen Fakten und Fiktion, Wirklichkeit und Fabeln unterschieden werden. Es wird auf Piranhas in ihrem natürlichen Lebensraum eingegangen, aber auch darauf unter welchen Voraussetzungen Piranhas im Aquarium artgemäß und erfolgreich zu pflegen und vielleicht sogar zu vermehren sind.
