About the Cover

The placid waters of the Rio Negro in the Brazilian Amazon are the source of tetras, catfish, cichlids, and countless other aquarium fish that have been collected for generations by the piabeiros, the South American fishers of ornamental species for the aquarium trade. Importer Mike Tuccinardi joined the piabeiros of the tiny village of Daracua, Brazil to see firsthand the traditional methods by which they collect many of the fish that we enjoy in our home aquariums. The sustainable methods employed at this very first step of the tropical fish supply chain are detailed in this month’s “Fishing with the Piabeiros of the Brazilian Amazon” (p. 74).

Tip of the Month:

Need some micro foods for an unexpected batch of fry? Dump the floss from a dirty filter into the fry tank! The babies will graze on the numerous microorganisms and tiny particles of detritus.
