the links to her other discovers pages at the bottom are just as neat :)
something that caught my eye however, I was reading Heiko Bleher discovers: South American suprises. She finds and describes a Heros efasciatus, found in water that pretty well matches my 110g. That makes me happy :) OTOH, they mention 100l / 22 gallons for a group of at least 3 of these fish. hrm. Now I need to spend all day studying the heros family tree
its extremely fascinating reading about fish we all know and love and their relation to their natural habitat. The natural temperature deviations, habits, and especially water parameters just blow me away. Im going to have to think about it and do some digging to find an article I remember reading, about a fish that would routinely swim about into sharp temperature fluctuations of up to 10-15 degrees and back again without batting an eyelash. It boggles the mind :)
