Amazonas magazine online and free

Some of you may have seen a new hobby periodical in magazine stores this year. It is called Amazonas and in spite of the name, it is not about the Amazon, but about the freshwater tropical fish hobby. It was previously available only in German, but commencing in January 2012 began publishing an English edition. It comes out bi-monthly for six issues a year.

It is also available online, and without cost. You can access the current issue here:
AMAZONAS MAGAZINE | one of the world?s leading freshwater aquarium magazines
by clicking "current issue" at the top of the page.

The editorial board has some impressive names, and the articles are quite well written. In this current issue there is an informative article with photos of male/female of each species of the miniature rasbora in the genus Boraras. These are ideal fish for the popular nano tanks. The cichlid aficionados will know the author, Paul Loiselle, who was in the forefront of the popularization of African rift lake cichlids back in the 1980's. I was pleased to meet Dr. Loiselle when he was one of our honoured guest speakers and participants at the Northwest Council of Aquarium Societies meeting back then.

There are also several articles on cichlids in this edition. And lots of other useful stuff too.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
