About this book

Language: German

The terms shell dwellers or shell-dwellers, shell-breeding, or ostracophil are descriptive terms for cichlid fish that use the empty shells of aquatic snails as sites for breeding and shelter. This guide describes in detail for the first time all shell-dwelling cichlids of Lake Tanganyika. Their unique breeding behavior is of special interest to aquarists and biologists.

Summary in German:
Dieser Ratgeber beschreibt erstmals ausführlich Pflege und Zucht sämtlicher Schneckenbuntbarscharten des Tanganjikasees, die Aquarianer und Biologen seit jeher mit ihrem einzigartigen Brutverhalten faszinieren.
