Born in 1956, Dr. Anton Lamboj has been an aquarist since the age of ten. In 1980 he began to take a special interest in the cichlids of West and Central Africa. These interests led to Anton’s academic education at the University of Vienna, which began in 1988. Works for his Master degree and Ph.D. were focussed on the systematics of West African cichlids, which still embodies both his major work and his aquaristic interest. Anton’s scientific work combines morphological and anatomical methods, as well as ethological studies and molecular methods.
As an aquarist, Anton is also interested in many other groups of fish (as he says, “every fish is of interest and beautiful”), with a detailed focus on anabantids and killifish. Other hobbies pursued with passion are maintaining orchids in a small greenhouse and gardening.
Currently, Anton is President of the Austrian Association of Aquarium and Terrarium Clubs. Over the years, he has made 14 field/collecting trips to Africa, and at the present time maintains around 45 tanks to breed and study his fish. Having authored more than 150 papers (both academic and hobbyist) in seven languages, including three books, including the celebrated The Cichlid Fishes of Western Africa, and several contributions to various other books, Anton has also given over 250 presentations in 11 countries (including the USA).
Passing along his enormous wealth of knowledge in an easy to comprehend manner that is vibrant with his characteristic enthusiasm, Anton is a rare treasure to the aquarium world.
Join us in this episode as we take a look at some of the not commonly seen cichlids in the hobby.
Learn all about the odd balls that people often confuse with it being a non cichlid.
Find out about some of the down right weirdo cichlids that are commonly seen in the hobby and ones that you can easily keep!
With the ACA national convention right around the corner this is a basic rundown of the different classes of cichlids with Sam Scalz and Conway Stevens
All of the major groups and even a few of the minor groups will be covered along with the different showing classes for the convention.
Join Mr Sam Garcia Jr. and Mr CJ Bourg of the Geo Life facebook page, along with Mr Conway Stevens of Aquatic Support Systems as they have a general discussion about the geophagus and some of the other earth eaters.
Join Sam Scalz and Conway stevens as they are joined by Shawn Armentrout to discus the ins and outs of operating a hatchery.
Been fish keeping since I was 19, so for about 25 years. I started with Midevils and Dempseys. Up until about 10 years ago I only had a hand full of tanks with my 135 gallon being the largest. Then I met an awesome fish keeper here in Washington at a LFS that showed me that there are a lot more Cichlids out there than Midevils. I started ordering fish from Rehoboth Aquatics in Texas, and then met Gage Brady at Cichlid Connection. Shortly after that I met Jeff Rapps, and the rest is history. I went from 6 tanks to 30 tanks, my largest being 406 gallons, in about 3 years. I got addicted and wanted everything. I read and studied and learned all that I could, so that I could be the best fish keeper around. I currently own around 30 different species of Cichlid, 20 different types of plecos, 5 different species of loaches and 11 different species of Bichir. My pride and joy are my 23”Costa Rican Blue Dovii, 13” male Amphilophus Hoga, 13” Amphilophus Labiatus, 12” Amphilophus sp ‘red isletas’, 12” Paratheraps Zonatus, 13.5” Paratheraps Hartwegi, 13” Paratheraps Bifasciatus, 12” Paratheraps Melanurus, my Peruvian and Ecuadorian Festae pairs. These have all been with me the longest. My goal is to either get set up to where I can raise and breed hundreds of different species and distribute them across the country, or open my own fish store. Some day when I am ready to retire.
