Another stunning collection of photographs, with more info. than the "L" book. Sadly, there is a major publishing error which caused the information on where a fish was collected to be totally inaccurate for virtually the entire book. There are a lot of "Corydoras sp. ?" and there is also (surprise surprise) a "C" numbering system similar to that of the "L" numbered Loricariidae. This seems a little overkill, but there you go. The photographs that are labelled to species are pretty accurate for the entire book.What I really like about the Aqualog catfish books is that they have lots of photos of a given species, males, females and juveniles. They also had the great idea of grouping similar fish together throughout the book (I.E. C. adolfoi, C. metae, C. burgessi etc are all within a few pages of each other). Smashing idea, but WHY not adopt this approach with the "L" book?
