Brackish-Water Fishes (kun på engelsk)bogen om brakvandsfisk hos poppioesterbro

Scats, monos, archerfishes and puffers are all standard fare in the aquarium trade. Their splendid colors and their unusual appearance persuade many aquarists to buy them. For a long-term good health all these fishes require the addition of salt to the water to create so-called brackish water, but if we search the literature for information on the setting-up and maintenance of brackish-water aquaria, our quest is usually in vain. This book will thus fill a gap in the aquarium literature, as it is devoted exclusively to the subject of the brackish-water aquarium. It portrays in depth the special characteristics of the brackish-water zones of our planet, describes the equipment required to run a brackish-water aquarium, and details how such an aquarium should be set up and maintained. Considerable emphasis is placed in this book on the description of fish species that are suited to maintenance in a brackish-water aquarium. Not only are the classic brackish-water fishes mentioned above covered in detail, but many other beautiful, interesting, or bizarre species are presented as well. In addition, mention is also made of those fish species that, because of misidentification or incorrect information, are often classified as brackish-water fishes when in fact they are not. Hardcover, 80 pages and over 160 color photos.

Freshwater Stingrays from South America (kun på engelsk)stort udvalg i bøger hos poppi dyrecenter østerbro

In the rivers and lakes of tropical South America lives a group of fishes that are more often associated with the sea - stingrays. Although in their natural habitat they are feared much more than the piranhas, on account of their dangerous poisonous spines, all over the world increasing numbers of enthusiastic aquarists are succumbing to the fascination of these unique creatures.

Dr Richard Ross, a scientist at the Santa Barbara Zoo in America, has for a long time been keeping these fishes in the display aquaria at the zoo, and here publishes the vast store of knowledge derived from this experience. The requirements of these rays, as regards successful maintenance and breeding, are revealed in detail for the first time in the literature. The reader will learn all about the requisite tank size, how to set up an aquarium for rays, the correct water parameters, and breeding. The successful diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect rays is also covered in detail. In addition the different species groups and their pecularities are discussed.

The extremely detailed text is illustrated with more than 80 unique photos, making this an indispensable book for anyone who wishes to know more about these interesting creatures or who is keeping - or planning to keep - stingrays in an aquarium.

Loricariidae All L-Numbers (kun på Engelsk) bogen om alle l-maller

With this completely revised edition of one of the most successful aquarium fish books of the last decade, a new important chapter in the history of the aquarium
hobby has been written. This book covers all L-Numbers from 1 to 350 and all LDA-Numbers from 1 to 76 on 272 pages.

All important information and care instructions are given under the photos with international symbols. The explanation of the symbols is given in 10 different languages inside the book.

Sucker-mouth catfishes (scientific name: Loricariidae) are given an L or LDA number if they are imported for the aquarium hobby but cannot be unequivocally assigned to any described species.

Due to the immense individual variation in coloration and body-shape of the particular species it is often difficult to identify them.

Thus more than 1.800 photographs have been used to solve this problem.

This book is accepted worldwide as reference work for dealers, breeders and all aquarists who enjoy keeping these wonderful fishes.

Corydoras - All C-Numbers (Kun på engelsk)

The true mailed catfishes, with around 150 described species and at least as many not yet classified by science, form a highly complex group. All things considered, research into the systematic of these fishes, which are apparently all very closely related to one another, is very much in its infancy.

Now, it is true that in the aquarium hobby it is not the scientific name of a species, but the live fish, that is the center of interest. However, it is sometimes necessary to be able to indicate what species we are talking about, and hence C-numbers were brought into being in the magazine DATZ (=Die Aquarien und Terrarienzeitschrift), for identifying Corydoradinae that have been imported but not yet identified.

The first C-numbers appeared in the DATZ of 12/1993. Since then a number of species have either been described as new species or identified as existing described species. The majority of C-numbers, however, remain just as difficult to classify as in the past. By the time the AQUALOG All Corydoras (ISBN 3931702138) was published in 1996, there was already C-numbers 1 to 46. In the meantime we have reached C132 and there is no end in sight. But we nevertheless feel it makes sense to publish this complete list of all the C-numbers to date, compiled in line with the most recent knowledge. With over 270 photos, a must for the Corydoras lovers.

Freshwater Rays (kun på engelsk)bogen og ferskvands rokker

Most people think of the rays as marine fishes, but there are numerous species which spend their entire lives in fresh water. Then again other species, for example the mighty swordfish, live in fresh water for at least part of the time and are regularly encountered in the lower courses of rivers.

This AQUALOG volume represents the first comprehensive publication in the popular literature to cover all the rays living in fresh and brackish water, with full coverage of:

- the sawfishes (Pristidae)
- the guitarfishes (Rhinobatidae)
- the South American freshwater stingrays (Potamotrygonidae)

as well as all the representatives of the electric rays (Torpediniformes), eagle rays, mantas, etc (Myliobatidae), and whiptail stingrays (Dasyatidae) that are known to enter fresh or brackish water.

An identification key for all the species is provided. The aquaristically significant freshwater stingrays are depicted in colour photos illustrating a never-before-seen panoply of species and colour varieties. All the other species are likewise illustrated as never before.

Splendid biotope photos from the natural habitats of these rays round off this superlative volume.

This book thus presents an indispensable reference work for anyone interested in rays - aquarists, zoological gardens, scientists, and divers.
