I did not give a 5-star rating for a couple of reasons. First, most photos are much too dark. I cannot say if this is a printer's error or the result of the quality of the original photos themselves. I suspect that expert use of Photoshop would have, and should have, fixed these issues before publication. Second, the index is grossly insufficient. There is no subject index, only a species index-- and much of it is grouped into various complexes, instead of listing actual species. Granted, a lot of this is due to the fact that species names had not yet been assigned to the various fishes at the time of the writing, but it does make it harder to find information on a species you know.
Finally, I wish there was a companion volume that discussed the non-rock-dwelling cichlids of Lake Victoria.
