About the book
The author Dominik Niemeier has been interested in these fish since his childhood. He is considered one of the most accomplished snakehead experts in Europe. In this book, he sheds light on the subject from all sides, closes knowledge gaps, explains interdependencies, and offers new lines of thought.
In the second part, the book deals with keeping snakeheads in the aquarium. Among other things, the author discusses the ideal tank for Channidae, socialization with other fish, behavior, reproduction and breeding.
In the third part the author presents nearly all the species represented in the aquarium hobby, both those that have already been scientifically described and those still waiting for a description, in words and pictures.
The book will be published in the beginning of summer 2022. There will be a German and an English version.
It is their individual character, their uniqueness – I’ve never been able to find that in other fish

In addition to his involvement in various social media groups and forums, he runs the largest German-language website on the subject of snakeheads. In the meantime, he has kept and successfully bred most of the snakeheads known in the aquarium hobby, and even managed to breed some species that have never been bred in the aquarium hobby before. Currently he dedicates himself to breeding Channa barca in captivity, and as he was able to be the first to document them spawning he comes ever closer to this goal.
Since his childhood he has been actively and passively involved in animal, nature and species conservation, and he works as an animal (conservation) officer for the pet trade. This book on snakeheads was born from his desire to share knowledge about these unique creatures, and his hope that this will lead to more efficient protective measures for these fish families in their habitats and, at the same time, to optimizing the conditions for snakeheads in the aquarium hobby.
