books and magazines with Zebra plecos.

If it's about fish in general, or it's a little bit random, then this is the place to post it.

books and magazines with Zebra plecos.

Post by tirzo13 » Mon Apr 02, 2007 9:16 am

Hello, my 2 favorite fish are frontosa and the zebra pleco.
I pretty much have collected most of the books and magazines with frontosa in them over the past 10 years.
I have only been into zebra for a short time, so the only book i have so far is "the most beautiful L numbers.
I'm just wondering if anyone can list a couple of other books and magazines that zebra pleco have appeared in.
I heard the Practical fishkeeping has a couple, but i don't know which issues.
thanks

thanks CivicR,
it does not matter to me if the info is correct or outdated.
I just want to collect.
I'm sure most of the relevant information can be found here and with experience.

Just something about having a book or magazine that has your favorite fish on the cover, or an article about them.

I know that DATZ magazine have a downloadable PDF on their website that contains a few articles on the zebra pleco. I know this because I bought it.

However, it is in GERMAN. Luckly for me I have a native german speaking partner.

I've been into plecos for quite some time :D I had a few Zebras a while before this mag came out.

BAENSCH CATFISH ATLAS, Volume 1, actually does not have any pictures of zebra, per Racoll, but does mention them, and has a excellent passage about the Xingu.

Still worth the pickup, thanks. Looking for a deal on one.
