The main topic of this third AQUALOG reference book on the cichlids of Africa is the genus Aulonocara. These splendid fishes, known in English-speaking countries as Malawi Peacocks, are amongst the most magnificent and beautiful fishes in the world. Their glorious colors, their relatively peaceful nature, their small body size, and their interesting behavior, are combined by Mother Nature to make the members of this genus ideal aquarium fishes. In African Cichlids III all the species of this genus known to science, as well as their numerous geographical variants, plus some species not yet scientifically described, are illustrated to a level of completeness never before achieved. In addition, this volume also presents all the species and variants of the genera Alticorpus, Lethrinops, Taeniolethrinops, and Tramitichromis, as well as the variants of the species Astatotilapia calliptera that live in the Lake Malawi. With 128 pages, hardcover, and over 470 brilliant color photos, another achievement for breeders, dealers, and hobbyists interested in African Cichlids.
