August 2008 issue, page 120, picture of blue fish in middle of page. It is labeled Cyrtocara Moorii. Now I know nothing about this fish, but the speckles remind me more of Placidochromis Phenochilus.

They screw up their cichlids all the time!

I've never seen them do that, but I never liked how little information they had on cichlids...which is one of the reasons why I never renewed my TFH subscription and instead subscribed to Cichlid News Magazine...

Yeah, TheeMon, kind of surprised myself! Everyone on this forum has taught me a lot, even about fish I'm not interested in. The speckles are kind of a dead give-away though, right?

Yes, I agree, they screw up on cichlids quite often it seems. I don't bother to look at the magazine anymore, but the last time I looked inside one they had a Protomelas "Taiwan Reef" labeled as an example of a male Aulonocara species Peacock.

Used to read the magazine back in elementary school every month, but looking back TPH mag and books have a history of very sloppy editing. At least they used Cyrtocara instead of Haplochromis, they fought these name updates for years :lol:

They have some great information on planted tanks (even though it didn't help me :lol: ) and it's a great source for saltwater species...I used to subscribe, but now I just thumb through it and see if I need it before buying it!

Alot of the advise is "old school", but I'm kind of "old school" myself about alot of things!

The editor and some of the authors show up at local fish club meetings and functions. I like Amano's tanks and Finley's catfish articles even if nothing else is pertinent!

Someone should call them and make them look stupid...
Doesn't really make of a difference now, the magazine is in print, though I suppose they could put a notation in the next copy.

I caught this too a few days ago when I was going through my copy. I was going to email them too, but looks like you beat me to it DJ. At least I'm not the only one who thinks this magazine has gone down the toilet, I don't plan on renewing after this year. How does everyone like that Cichlid magazine, and how often does it come out? Also is it pretty equal when it comes to info on haps, peacocks, and the others?
