Product Description

Mini Encyclopedia of the Tropical Aquarium

Synopsis

The traditional image of an encyclopedia as a large, heavy volume only occasionally taken down from a dusty shelf is blown out of the water by this new range of mini-encyclopedias. These are comprehensive, concentrated packages of up-to-date practical guidance on a variety of fishkeeping and water gardening themes. The core text is amplified and extended by panels, captions and annotations that accompany the photographs and graphic illustrations. The first part of each volume consists of a hands-on practical section that follows the step-by-step progress of a specific project. Accompanying text includes technical advice on the equipment required to complete each stage of the project. The second part features a wide range of species or varieties relevant to the subject. These profile sections are profusely illustrated with stunning colour photographs and are designed to inspire readers to expand their collections. By combining practical and reference sections, these mini encyclopedias represent the ideal compromise in a world where shelf space is limited but the thirst for knowledge increases every day.

Excellent product! Have a few different books on fish keeping but this is one of my favorites for general advice, includes tank set up, plant and breeding etc. A great section on fish breeds that helps decide which fish are compatible to keep together and what tank specification such as size are required. Whilst your aquarium seller can advise you on your fish purchases its good to have an idea of the type of fish you would like to keep. Does not have all the fish stocked at local aquariums (would be a massive book otherwise) but covers a lot of of the more popular breeds without naming all the variations of that breed which keeps it concise. Would defiantly recommend to tropical fish keepers or anyone with an interest in fish

This book is perfect for people who, like me, want to find out about keeping tropical fish before committing to buy anything expensive.

I read it cover to cover and even now I'm all set up I still find myself referring to the book to make sure I'm doing things correctly. It is one of the only books that I've looked at that describes the nitrogen cycle properly, and details how to cycle your tank to ensure your fish stay healthy.

The listings for different fish species at the back of the book is an excellent place to start deciding what fish to stock your tank with. Being a small book there is obviously not space to list all the fish you'll see in your local fish shop, but it gives a very good foundation to build on.

A very good book for the beginer as is gives information from setting up the tank to choosing the right fish. An extensive list of fish with detailed information on their origins and the care they need. I bought a couple of books but this is the one we turn to most often when we need advice.

I bought this book when I was just starting out in the hobby and have referred to it ever since. It tells you pretty much everything you will need to know. I have since bought far more expensive books but this is still the favourite.

Really helped me plan the fish I would buy. Use it all the time to look up species. In conclusion, a great little book that was well worth the money!

This is a great book for beginners. Covers all the basics including setting up an aquarium, choosing fish, dealing with illnesses and a bit on breeding. It has an extensive section on different fish, it didn't cover everything that my local pet shop stocked, but it covers the most popular fish. The size is good as you can take it along when choosing your fish.
