About this book

African catfishes are a particularly diverse group of fishes. However, only a few of them have gained a permanent place in the aquarium hobby, mainly because they are inadequately known and have to date been imported only in limited numbers. This book should at least alleviate the first of these problems and demonstrate just how varied and interesting African catfishes are. This book is, as far as it is known, the first to present an overview of the entire African catfish group, and many of the photos illustrate the species in question for the very first time. New species are yet to be discovered and others may be known but remain undescribed. Includes much valuable information on habitats, care and spawning.
