Format: Hardcover
Much like the rather excellent The Interpet Bumper Guide to Tropical Aquarium Fishes, this is a great reference point for some of the more common (and some more unusual) species of cichlids available from live fish stockists.

The book is broken down into easily digestable chunks highlighting setup, equipment, water conditions and care for the different types of species. Perhaps of more interest, is the species guide, which should give you enough of a basic overview of a good variety of available species and their suitability (or unsuitability) for your tank and their potential tank mates.

This is a very good introduction and species reference guide for aquarists looking to set up something a little more feisty than the average community aquarium.

cichlids are one of my favourite tropical fish, so, i was looking forward to reading this book - but i was disappointed has it has little information on cichlids. it is more for the cichlid aquarium set-up, compatibility and maintenance.
the problem i have with interpet's books is that they all go over the same areas over and over again. for instance, i have 6 other interpet books on the subject of many other tropical fish species - all 6 books are between 350 to 400 pages in length but only 100 pages with pictures and very little information go over different fish species. the remaining pages talk about aquarium set-up, nitrate, ph, ammonia and nitrite. this is good - but only if you're a beginner and if you don't have any other books from interpet because those books are just the same boring read.

if cichlids really interest you then buy a hardcover atlas - and join the british cichlid association, as this book can't be highly recommended unless your new to cichlid fish keeping.
