Tanganyika Cichlids in their Natural Habitat 3rd edition - Ad Konings... 400 pages

Supposed to out in February 2015... if it is like the 2nd edition with more fish, and the 4th Malawi edition, should be a great book.

If it is anything like the others, it will be well worth the price tag and will more than likely fly off the shelves! I'll be eagerly awaiting it's release.

I'm hoping that Konings has finally done the best he could to cover all the coasts of the lake. Doesn't sound easy at all with the political and logistical problems around the lake.

Seems like an end to an era in a way. Even if someone else could try to follow up his books with new photography and discoveries, the lake environment will be changed by humans, fish will go extinct, habitats will be altered. Specialized print books like this probably will no longer be viable...

Had an older version which I loaned out and forgot to whom and has been lost for a few years. New edition will be w great excuse to replace it :-)

I can't find any info regarding this book. Would love to pick up a copy!
3rd edition you say? Was there a 2nd Edition? Don't remember ever seeing one.

The January issue of Cichlid News has an ad saying that the book is coming out. It says "3rd edition".

Actually you are quite correct. Not clear what is the "2nd" edition. There is an earlier book, but it was called "Tanganyika Secrets". There is a Tropheus version, but that shouldn't count.

I got the 4th edition of Konings' Malawi book for Christmas, and I have to say, it might be the first reference book I ever read from cover to cover. :D
