About Us

 Cichlid Press (UK) was founded in 1997, and is closely allied to Cichlid Press in Texas, USA, which publishes books and electronic media on cichlids by Ad Konings, and occasionally other selected authors.  We can supply English language editions of Cichlid Press publications to any country in the world except for the USA, Canada, and Central American countries, which are serviced directly by the publisher (cichlidpress.com).  We operate primarily by mail order, though you may find us at events in the UK such as the Catfish Study Group (UK) conventions.  

Our company watchword has always been efficient, courteous, friendly service.  Our new website will continue to embody that principle, and if you have any complaints, we want to be the first to know so we can put things right.  We realise that a satisfied customer is a customer who comes back again, and who tells his or her friends.  

Our service goes further than what you will see displayed on this site.  If you want a book in a hurry for a special occasion such as a birthday, we will make a special trip to the post office to get it on its way by Special Delivery, and we expect you to pay only the extra postage, not for our time and petrol.  If you want a cichlid (or catfish) book we don’t stock, we can probably tell you where you can get it.  We will also, if we can, point you in the right direction for other aquarium hobby books if you are unable to source them.  Never be afraid to ask – if we can help, we will.  

We are also open to suggestions for improving our service, so feel free to contact us if you have any bright ideas.

We hope you enjoy visiting our site and shopping with us!

The first item bearing the logo of Cichlid Press proved to be the first volume of  "The Cichlids Yearbook."
 Since then, Cichlid Press has published many books dedicated to the family cichlidae, in the main dealing with cichlids of the Great Rift Valley, Lake's Malawi and Tanganyika Ad Konings has spent a great many hours diving in the two lakes resulting in thousands of photos and dozens of publications and is cited in literature by many 
scientists from around the world.
