The Cichlid Fishes of Western Africa covers every cichlid species from western Africa ; those from West and Central Africa (from Senegal to the Congo), are discussed, as are species from the most northern and southwestern drainages. In addition to the better-known and commonly kept species, several rarely featured and undescribed varieties are included. Three chapters discuss general systematics, natural habits and care of cichlids from western Africa but the book’s main focus is the description of every species; most are illustrated with good quality photographs.

Information on the identification, distribution, ecology and breeding biology, as well as keeping and breeding in aquaria, are presented for each species where known.

The superb photography, combined with the individual descriptions, aid the determination of nearly every species. The book is the most comprehensive and up-to-date resource currently available to scientists and aquarists interested in the cichlids of western Africa. Published price GBP£56.00.
