CHARACINS—NEW BRAZILIAN TETRAS?
“The Characins Special Edition is incredible!”
The tetra issue is going to be a historical reference for at least the next 10 years….it is incredible, and I hope it becomes a huge hit for you guys!
“The first publication showing many of these species…”
It is very exciting to be part of a project showing all these new fishes. With the incredible diversity of new tetras coming from Brazil, it has been great to work on the first publication showing many of these species.
“The best thing published about small Characidae in decades.”
This special issue is—in my opinion—one of the most important publications on small South American Characidae in the aquatic hobby literature. I was always dreaming of such a compilation. Now, it is reality.
“I hope there are plans for more of these Special Editions!”
Just a quick note from a long time aquarist, 55 years, and an initial subscriber to AMAZONAS who has seen many aquarium magazines come and go. I have thoroughly enjoyed AMAZONAS and recommend it to many of my associates. I particularly enjoyed the Characins-New Brazilian Tetras Special Edition. Keep it up and I hope there are plans for more of these Special Editions.
