Stephan Reebs writes in a clear style and does so with a light touch. For anyone interested in the inner workings of fish, I highly recommend this book. Technical enough to be accurate but not 110% jargon and incomprehensible without a degree in ichthyology

Stephan Reebs writes in a clear style and does so with a light touch. Fish Behavior will engage and enlighten the reader with an interest in the natural history of animals. George W. Barlow, University of California, Berkeley). Technical enough to be accurate but not 110% jargon and incomprehensible without a degree in ichthyology. As a freshwater fishkeeper of over 20 years, I still learned a lot about my "wet pets" from reading this book.

A home aquarium seems a peaceful place. Reebs not only describes the behaviors, but also outlines simple experiments that can be performed by observers wishing to learn for themselves just how resourceful-and bizarre-these creatures can b. ow Fish Behave introduces us to damselfishes that sing like birds, elephantfishes that communicate electrically, and sticklebacks that deceive other fish into believing they have found food.

Stéphan Reebs provides a delightfully entertaining, yet scientifically grounded, look at what fishes do and how they do it. From defending their young, to seeking out the perfect sexual partner, to telling time, fishes display a variety of behaviors that may not be readily apparent to the casual.

A home aquarium seems a peaceful place. Gazing at its inhabitants as they swim slowly through their small universe is a soothing, even hypnotic, experience. But this seeming tranquillity is only surface deep. Like their wild counterparts, these tiny, glittering beings exhibit a wide array of fascinating behaviors.Stéphan Reebs provides a delightfully entertaining, yet scientifically grounded, look at what fishes do and how they do it. From defending their young, to seeking out the perfect sexual partner, to telling time, fishes display a variety of behaviors that may not be readily apparent to the casual observer. Reebs not only describes the behaviors, but also outlines simple experiments that can be performed by observers wishing to learn for themselves just how resourceful―and bizarre―these creatures can be.How Fish Behave introduces us to damselfishes that sing like birds, elephantfishes that communicate electrically, and sticklebacks that deceive other fish into believing they have found food. Drawing on the experimental evidence behind such intrinsically interesting responses, Reebs demonstrates how science is conducted in the field of animal behavior.

  • Such great anecdotal AND scientific stories and explanations, well paced with just enough humor. Covers vast array of species and details in depth some common questions I personally always had over fish in aquarium, such as "do they sleep?" "spawning habits" "Why does the same bass keep getting caught on hooks in the world of fishing?" "Why do fish chase each other and just how is pecking order/territories broken down?" All these questions and more, Reebs writes an excellent quick yet in depth, entertaining and informative read. A must for icthyologists and fish lovers!

  • It's a good book; very technical and in that respect, a bit over my head. But if you want to know about experiments and the "why" of fish behavior and in very scientific terms, this is your book.

  • For anyone interested in the inner workings of fish, I highly recommend this book. Technical enough to be accurate but not 110% jargon and incomprehensible without a degree in ichthyology. As a freshwater fishkeeper of over 20 years, I still learned a lot about my "wet pets" from reading this book.

    Perfect for the aquarist interested in how his fish think!

  • Learn how fish hear, recognize each other, navigate around obstacles despite blindness, take care of their kids, and many other interesting facts. Reebs is a Biology professor but he saves the references for the back of the book.
    Give this one to your friends who don't understand why you need a 300-gallon tank in the living room...

  • Keeping it forever for reference.

  • A great book, an inner understanding of fish behavior. Fish behavior that have been moderated by evolution and you can now see the direction. A serious read, not many pictures. Recommended for all hard core aquarists.

  • I think everyone who has an interest in fishes, should read this book. You will get so much more insight in why your fishes behave as they do. Highly recommended.

  • This book is a must have for anyone who is interested in fish behaviour.
