Issue Cover

Practical Fishkeeping  |  Practical Fishkeeping October 2022  


I love the more unusual stuff in this hobby, as I’m sure you do, which is why this issue was such a delight to compile. Right off the bat we have the exquisite new Cenepa red pencilfish, reported on by new contributor Mike Tuccinardi — who actually owns some! From there it’s a leap into the high-speed waters of Africa where we meet cyprinids that have evolved for a life of hunting other fish, and if that wasn’t enough weirdness we then segue into a species of freshwater Australian cardinalfish. It’s all about the quirk in this issue. .. read more
I also love learning new things, and there are a few snippets that surprised me. Did you know that Lake Tanganyika has its own sardine populations? Or that there’s an Indian barb so territorial that it’s been likened to a cichlid in behaviour? Neither did I when I started reading my submissions, but I’m delighted that I do now!  read less
