Herichthys minckleyi – www.ciclidos-mexico.com

Cuatro Cienegas, meaning four marshes, is a unique ecosystem in the northern desert of Mexico. Despite efforts to preserve this rare biological reserve, water levels have been dropping. It is believed that large scale agriculture and climatological changes are to blame. Cuatro Cienegas is home to about 30 endemic aquatic species, including Herichthys cyanoguttatus and Herichthys minckleyi. The website www.ciclidos-mexico.com has several galleries with hundreds of pictures from the Cuatro Cienegas area and fishes. Here are a few of the galleries: Herichthys minckleyi Gallery 1, Herichthys minckleyi Gallery 2, Lepomis megalotis, Views of Cuatro Cienegas, Poza Azul pool
