Panaqolus – An overview in theory and practice


In this talk I‘ll introduce the loricariid catfish genus Panaqolus. Some of these plecos are well known for ages in the aquarium trade – but they are a little misjudged, although they are perfect fish for the aquarium trade because of their small size and in many species nice color pattern…
I pay a close attention to this genus for several years and want to make them more common for other fish keepers. I‘ll actualize this talk continuously and add the newest scientific results.

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.
