Ny Trondro Malagasy! Home to lemurs, chameleons and exotic plants, the fabulous Red Island also boasts an amazing - and gravely threatened - assemblage of endemic fishes. This introduction to the Malagasy ichthyofauna focuses on Madagascar’s endemic rainbowfishes, killies and cichlids, discusses the reasons for their dramatic decline and outlines how aquarists can play a role in saving these living fossils from extinction.
