Ophthalmotilapia boops in DCG-Informationen

In the latest issue (May 2016) of DCG-Informationen (the journal of the German Cichlid Association), Wolfgang Staeck tackles the lesser known species Ophthalmotilapia boops. In a comprehensive article the author describes how he discovered the beautiful "Neon Stripe" variant in the Kipili Archipelago back in 1977. The article also includes a taxonomic history of the genus Ophthalmotilapia, and instructions on how to care for it in aquaria.

Based on our expeditions along the southern Tanzanian shores in 2008, where many new geographical colour variants of Ophthalmotilapia boops were discovered, the author presents the latest findings on the species, which includes, among other things, its exact distribution range. The article is accompanied by pictures of 40 different geographical variants, photographed in their natural habitat. This publication is the first to cover all geographical colour variants of Ophthalmotilapia boops.


A detailed map of the southern Tanzanian shores of Lake Tanganyika is available in Tanganika Magazynno. 17 https://goo.gl/kMQz4B
