-Don Dewey Editor FAMA 1995

Cichlids: The Pictorial Guide Volume 2

Beautiful photos of both male and female fish in prime condition are featured on each page. Information is presented in brief text and quick-reference icons.

“New Life Publications established a new photographic standard for aquarium books with Cichlids: the Pictorial Guide Vol I. I wrote a FAMA review of that book indicating that it has “no equal…and the photography was spectacular.” However, times change and so must opinions. Vol I is now joined by Vol II. Now these two books have no equal.”
