After searching and scouring the web for a decent book for cat fish and now having my top list of three narrowed down.

I wondered which were your favourite books specific to catfish ofcourse.

And please do not mention THE GREAT LOVE BOOK ARTICLE BY DOUG.... lol.. we all know it is the Bristlenose Holy Manual...lol...
no pun intended Doug.... Smile

My number 1 =
http://www.planetcatfish.com/books/books.php?article_id=371&title=Back+to+Nature+Guide+to+L-Catfishes
between £10-£18 including postage at all good book stores online.

so come on name your books, and provide a link and price for the new members where you can...

now back to my reading...

merry christmas to all you Bristlenose enthusiasts.

regards

benefit from it also.

Cheers for the mention guys Smile

I must admit I have never read a book on bristlenose, or any of the L numbers, well apart from mine lol!

I have done all my research through scientific journals, talking directly to researchers and of course, doing it myself.

I have ordered kathy jenkins' book a while ago but it still has not arrived, prob should check that.

After ages of "yea I wouldn't mind a copy..." I finally got my hands on Kathy Jinkings book Bristlenoses: Catfish with Character. And I must say it is a great read and well recommended for others like myself who enjoy sitting down with a cuppa and flicking through a fish book Smile

For those interested in purchasing a copy it's easily found on amazon uk. I live in Australia and I had no difficulty at all with shipping and delivery.

Just checked my books, and there is not too many about BNs. However, here is my list and rankings:


No. 1
K. Jinkings: Bristlenose - Catfish with character
Only disturbing thing about Kathy's book, is that there are all too many pictures with notes "this is not XX ancistrus/pleco/etc"
I want to know what is on the picture, and not what isn't. Bit annoying.

Otherwise a very good book. I especially like the biology part.
Unfortunately there is very little about behaviour.


No. 2
Back to Nature: L-catfishes
I find the symbols very helpful. I. e.: some species does not require strong currents - L-134 -, which is not mentioned in other books.


No. 3
David Sands: An Interpet guide to African and Asian catfishes
A very good book with all the basics.


No. 4
AquaLog: All L-numbers
Unfortunately there is no index, so if you wish to find a BN, you have to go through the whole book.


Thanks Jim for mentioning the book by Dr Carl Ferraris, Jr.! cheers
Just placed my bid on eBay. Keep fingers crossed. :bounce:

The books 20 years old now, I got it when it was first published pale so obviously there is a lot of the L numbers not mentioned, but saying that there is plenty of information that will always be relevent, plus lots of amazing photos Very Happy
