Many books have been published solely about Killifish, however these often go out of print very quickly.
Luckily e-librarians such as Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, E bay (or others, please search online) regularly sell pre-owned (second hand) books allowing the opportunity to find and collect unavailable titles. It should be noted that simply because a big supplier like Amazon does not stock a book at one point in time, it does not mean that its competitors do not at this time and that it cannot be the case some day in the future. Note that if you own Seegers's series of Aqualog (and also Wildekamp's series of a World of Killies), a page is herein dedicated to names UPDATES for those books.
This page, last updated on November 19. 2019, is edited without paid advertising (list is without any order, most books are in English, no purely aquarium book is listed… for a wider selection with older books see FAQ1).
