Adrian Indermaur was born 1984 in a remote countryside village in Switzerland. This environment sparked an early interest in nature and its processes, which led him to the study of biology. He finished in spring 2014 handing in his dissertation on ecological and phylo-geographic aspects of Lake Tanganyika cichlid assemblages. Today he works permanently as head of fish facility at the University of Basel, Switzerland. His brother had introduced Adrian to the aquarium hobby in 1996 keeping Betta spp. and finally a pair of Pelvicachromis pulcher. Ever since cichlids of all kind have never lost their fascination and during his travels in Nicaragua,Costa Rica, Panama, Egypt and so forth, he would always have an eye open for the colorful fish. In the framework of his job he took part in several sampling trips to Lake Tanganyika (Zambia, Tanzania and Burundi) as well as the Crater Lakes and rivers of Cameroon during the last 8 years. Further to this, Adrian is an author for the Cichlid Room Companion and has recently started to publish articles in popular magazines.

Adrian is a PhD student of biology at the University of Basel (CH), working on ecological aspects of cichlid evolution. His focus groups are mainly cichlids from Lake Tanganyika. He began keeping fish at the young age of 12 and has been on and off ever since. A particular interest for cichlids has always been there, but has been strongly enforced since he started his scientific work around the group of the Tropheini from Lake Tanganyika. At the moment he is taking care of approximately 120 tanks with several different tanganyikan species. In the last years he has participated in several sampling trips to Africa (Lake Tanganyika) and Central America (Nicaragua, Costa Rica), where he gained quite some experience with cichlids in their natural habitat.
