About the Cover

Upon observing the jaguar cichlid (Parachromis managuensis) in action, the vibrant reputation that New World cichlids have acquired is easily understood. This large and territorial cichlid is the most commonly traded fish of its genus in the hobby and makes for an impressive specimen in a home tank. While this cichlid is not recommended for beginners, there are plenty of other fish in the sea (and streams and lakes), and our guide “16 Cichlids Every Aquarist Should Try” (p. 54) aims to point you toward a favorite new piscine pet.

Tip of the Month:

The leftovers at the bottom of a package of freeze-dried krill or plankton not only make great fry food, the can be used to "season" other foods to make them more palatable to your fish. Just put them in with the other food, shake, and in a day or so the odor/flavor will have permeated. It's not just dust...don't throw it out!
