    Can anyone provide a page number that provides a legend for the remarks that Romer uses at the end of each species profiile as I was having some difficulty in locating that?

    T: temperature
    L: Length for male & female
    A: I'm assuming is aquarium length/size
    R: ?
    D: Distribution?

    I don't think there is a legend at all in the Römer book. However i did some thinking combined with reading the book back and forth.

    T= Temperature
    L= Length of species
    A= Recommended aquarium length
    R= Region, i.e. m= middle of the tank, b= bottom
    D= Difficulty 1=easy, 4=rather demanding species

    Hope it will help u, if someone else has another interpretation, please reply

    If you have the book, or can read it somewhere, the legend can be found in Mergus Aquarium Atlas 1. It's page 200 in mine, but it s french version so might not be the same in yours. (it's the page just before species description).

    Also Chris is right.
