N-511 Sup1 Supplement 1 for Killifishes of the world - New World Killis (Aqualog 14) (Aqualog) $3.09

Description: Although in the 70s and 80s it was the "Dark Continent" of Africa which continually provided new and beautiful killifishes never before seen, since then, it has become increasingly apparent that South America is also home to killifishes which are in no way inferior to their Old World cousins in terms of interesting behaviour and coloration. In the last few years not only new species, but also several new genera, have been discovered there. At present a total of 36 different genera are known from the New World, as opposed to "only" 22 on the other side of the Atlantic. The latter have already been covered comprehensively in the two AQUALOG volumes of "Old World Killies". The American killifishes are also extraordinarily diverse in form, as will be quite apparent from this latest volume. This book is the first in the entire history of 
the aquarium hobby - and ichthyology - to provide this kind of full and comprehensive overview of the New World killifishes using colour photographs. This applies to the North American species as well as those of the South American continent. A full 
overview of the genus Cyprinodon is provided, even including some forms that are now extinct.As well as the aforementioned Cyprinodon, the species of the genera Cynolebias, Pterolebias, Rivulus, and Simpsonichthys, as well as the Fundulus species of North America, are focal points of this volume, which, however, also includes the representatives of the many other smaller genera.As with all AQUALOG pictorial volumes, supplements to this book will be published over the years to come in order to ensure that it remains totally up-to-date.

Description: In this AQUALOG-reference book, Dr. Lothar Seegers introduces the groups Aphysosemion, Lampeyes and Ricefishes. "Freshwater Jewels" is another name for the beautiful killis. You will know why after having seen the amazing array of colors displayed by killifishes, presented in this book on over 800 brilliant multi-colored photographs. Like in all other AQUALOG books we have taken great troubles to present all known groups, even all locality-variants.All AQUALOG -reference books introduce each fish (incl. breeding forms etc.) with at least one color photo and a short description. The ingenious code number system labels every known or newly discovered fish with an individual code number. This number remains, despite any scientific renaming. Moreover, it enables you to communicate internationally about any fish without the danger of confusion regarding local names!Your AQUALOG -reference book always stays up-to-date! All newly discovered or bred species are regularly published as supplements or so-called "stickups" in our AQUALOGnews. These stickers can be attached to the empty pages at the end of your book.

Description: Another volume compiled by our Expert Dr. Lothar Seegers. Many of the 550 color photos have been taken by himself. The groups of panchaxes, Aplocheilus, Epiplatys, Nothobranchius, Aphanius and others are introduced in this sequel, again with all varieties, localities and exact scientific names. Their colors and size (most of them reach only 3 to 8 cm) make them the ideal aquarium inhabitants. The first volume already triggered off a rising interest in killis.
