The nomenclature changes, new collections, new species, new equipment,
new techniques never stop. There is no single reference book and they all are

These are the books that I find invaluable:
Wildekamp Volumes 1, 2 and 3 have been published and the names have been

within the next year.
Huber Killidata 2000 is almost up to date and lists fish names and collections
Killifish Master index to be published very soon and will up to date as of
now for names
Wild Collections - published up through 1995. Another edition is due soon.
AquaLog Volumes I and II Old World Kills and New World Killis. A good, not
great, collection of color pictures with minimal information.
Rivulins of the Old World long outdated but all the information except the
current names is very useful and the color pictures are great.
Atlas of Killifish by Scheel (TFH coffee table style boo, but still very
Huber's Rivulus book
Costa's Cynolebias book
Eberl's Cameroon book
Brousseau's South American annual book
Tony Terceira's Book
Ed Warner's book

If I needed just a book on how to keep killies, I would recommend Ed
