Format: Hardcover
All of the Aqualog books are excellent value, although they are not particularly cheap. They are full to the brim with first class colour photographs and to reproduce these in a book is an expensive process. Whether they are about Puffer fishes, or some other species of fish they are the most comprehensive identification books you can buy. They never become dated because as new fish become available to the aquarist trade the books are updated.

They do not deal with the basics of fish keeping, there are many and varied books that do that. They are in the main a fish identification encyclopaedia and nothing more. But for those aquarists who are particularly interested in a single species they are indispensable.

RARE FIND 12 Jan. 2007
By almondjoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I started off with 2 figure 8 puffers and fell in love with puffers. I now have 7 different species. I had a total of 10 different species but 3 of them died. I was desparate to find a book strictly about puffers. A pet store employee who also had an mbu puffer knew that I collected puffers and had ordered me this book. I now call it my bible. There are many bright and colorful pictures but the information on each puffer is very general. Ebert goes a little more into detail about the puffers that he had owned throughout his years of raising puffers. I use it mainly to match the species to the name (many times, pet stores do not give the correct name or scientific name). Then it's easier to look up more info on the internet. I like this book a lot just because it focuses on fresh and brackish water puffers only. There are so many books on goldfishes, cichlids, etc, but it's so hard to find one on puffers. Also, everying is measured in metric so I had to convert every measurement into gallons or inches.

It's ok. 7 Mar. 2013
By Amzwizzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The photographs are amazing,but for how much I paid I thought the book would have a lot more content about the actual fish. It's very thin and most composed of photograph. Kind of disappointed.
