Steatocranus: A Genus Review article is the newest addition to the Cichlid-Forum library. For those that aren’t familiar with the Genus, this article is a great introduction to this group of West African cichlids. These fish have evolved to handle the fast moving waters of the Congo River, as is apparent by their unique body shape. Along with having a streamlined body, Steatocranus have also reduced their need for a swim bladder. The Author, Dave Hansen, has covered the basics of keeping and breeding this fish. The article, found here in the Library, also includes 10 great pictures by the author showing 5 different species.

Discussion on Steatocranus can be done in the Lake Victoria Basin, West African, Madagascar & Asian Species forum.
