Changings at Rio Xingu


The Rio Xingu is one of the most important tributaries of the amazon in Brazil. I‘ll present the situation in the low water season and compare it with the high water season, when most rapids are flooded. Especially I give information about the actual situation at the Belo Monte dam and what that means for the future! Furthermore I‘ll present the breeding facility from UFPA that is managed by Leandro Sousa.

For more than 10 years I have been working as a specialist author and speaker in aquaristics. My main topic is the ichthyofauna of South America, especially the plecos and dwarf cichlids.

I hold my lectures at meetings or events of aquarium associations, specialized shops or at trade fairs at home and abroad.

Recently I was on a three-week lecture tour in the US, but I also like to come to your aquarium club, whether it's a small gathering or an event with several hundred participants.
