Their behavior in the wild, as you will read in this book, is ruled by ecological factors that cannot realistically be duplicated in the aquarium, and for this reason these fish behave rather differently /5(8).

The majority of the book is taken up by the discussion and depiction of all known Tropheus species (6) and varieties (+). These are broken up into 13 distinct lineages by the author, but the number of species may be more - possibly /5.   Overview. African cichlids belong to the Cichlidae family, which includes all other ds are one of the most diverse groups of fish and many species can be found in Africa. There could be over species, but most of these still need to be described by scientists.. South America is also home to lots of cichlid species; there are even some that live in Asia.

The majority of the book is taken up by the discussion and depiction of all known Tropheus species (6) and varieties (+).

These are broken up into 13 distinct lineages by the author, but the number of species may be more - possibly /5(14). A new species of Tropheus (Pisces: Cichlidae) from Lake Tanganyika (Special publication / J.L.B.

Smith Institute of Ichthyology). The book clearly describes the various color morphs and catch locations of the various T. Moorii varieties and well as T. Duboisi and T. Brichardi. The images of the fish in their natural setting in the lake are breath taking and wonderful/5(9).

This book is one of Ad Konings older books on Lake Tanganyika. I am not entirely sure you can still order it. It has some nice information about Tropheus, but more of a general book on Lake Tanganyikan Cichlids.

It has quite a few passages about the lifestyles of new species of Tropheus book cichlids found in the lake which are very good. ISBN: About this book. Cichlids of the genus Tropheus have fascinated aquarists since they were first exported from Lake Tanganyika in the late s.

It may have been their "unconventional" shape, or the fact that females brood their offspring to a relatively large size inside their mouths, that initially appealed to. The book is divided into chapters about the Lake, Genus, Species, Geographical Variation, Territory, Feeding, Breeding, Classification, and In the Aquarium.

Konings shares over color photographs, 99% of which are in their natural habitat. The iBook includes a bonus, eight videos of Tropheus in the lake.

Book is presenting author's own long-term studies on coregonid fish (Salmonidae, Coregoninae) with addition of data on rearing and culturing of other freshwater and marine species, and different.

The last tank has l (65 gal) and its inhabitants include Tropheus moorii Kasanga and T. black from Rutunga.

As you have seen in the aforementioned distribution, I have two T. moorii species together, but I don't think that these two fishes are the same species (although books say yes), and their coloration's are very different.

Moreover. An additional early reference to Tropheus “Mpimbwe” includes Guillot (), incorporating ‘Tropheus moorii moorii mpimbwe’ in a list of Tropheus variants, later with the following description: ‘Tropheus species, variety Mpimbwe, with a bloody throat found around Cape Mpimbwe’ (Guillot, 29).

The genus Tropheus represents the most spectacular and best studied example for this phe-nomenon, counting more than distinctly colored populations and sister species, some living in symp-atry.

Now the Tropheus genus can be broken down into eight different species, although, many aquarists break the genus down to only four species. The following is a list of the eight species according to Ad Konings as he wrote in his book “Tanganyika Cichlids in their natural habitat”: T. Moorii, T.

Annectens, T. Duboisi, T. Brichardi, T. “black”, T. “red”, T. “Mpimbwe”, and T. “Ikola”. Basically, it is agreed that the Tropheus genus is comprised of the 5 species duboisi, moorii, brichardi, annectens (includes polli), and the catchall "sp.

black" or "sp. aff. moorii" which basically means associated with but not conclusively placed as a species. However, their investigations do suggest that the populations of the Tropheus species are likely to be old, much older than the species in Lake Malawi and Lake Victoria. In my opinion the discovery of the antiquity of the Tropheus species is very interesting and deserves more attention than the proposed new classification based on the number of DNA mutations.

The species of the cichlid genus Tropheus are so specialized in feeding habits, that they are not able disperse beyond rocky areas. As a result the fish of this. This is a NEW book. The sex of the Tropheus species is bit difficult to determine and can vary depending on the variety.

Males tend to be a little larger than females, but that is not always reliable. The females do not grow as fast as the males and their coloring is less bold. Breeding / Reproduction. The Tropheus cichlids have been bred in captivity.

Watch list is full. The species of the cichlid genus Tropheus are so specialized in feeding habits, that they are not able disperse beyond rocky areas. This item will ship to United Statesbut the seller has not specified shipping options. Learn more – opens in new window or tab.

Nice book, well packed and promptly shipped. Six recognized species are in this genus: Tropheus annectens Boulenger, Tropheus brichardi Nelissen & Thys van den Audenaerde, Tropheus duboisi Marlier, (white spotted cichlid).

In part one of his in-depth look at the Tropheus species of Africa's Lake Tanganyika, respected aquatic author, photographer, and fishkeeping legend Wolfgang Staeck delves into the history and habitat of these remarkable cichlids.

Tropheus OB Photographs Collection, The Most Valuable Species of Tropheus Aquarium Although the genetics of these species cannot be solved, they are rarely seen in some tanks and in Tanganyika Lake. Tropheus in their natural habitat by Ad Konings Cichlids of the genus Tropheus have fascinated aquarists since they were first exported from Lake Tanganyika in the late s.

It may have been their "unconventional" shape, or the fact that females brood their offspring to a relatively large size inside their mouths, that initially appealed to hobbyists. Tropheus is a small genus of eight species of cichlids endemic to Lake Tanganyika in East Africa.

Annecten, Black, Brichardi, Duboisi, Ikola, Moorii, Mpimbwe and Red. The genus Tropheus is widespread across all regions of lake Tanganyika, from Burundi in the North to Zambia in the South.Tropheus species.

The genus Tropheus contains five recognized species. Tropheus annectens Tropheus brichardi Tropheus duboisi Tropheus moorii Tropheus polli. There is also a subspecies of Tropheus moorii named Tropheus moorii kasabae. Tropheus variants. Even within the same species, Tropheus fish display a high degree of heterogeneity.
