Brilliant I had this book a few years ago but stupidly gave it away when I gave away my fresh water tank. When I purchased my Marine Tank I was mortified when realized what I had done with my book so I trawled the internet and found this one. I was so relieved to be owning this book - whether you own a Cold, Tropical or Marine water this is a comprehensive fish bible that is simple to use and follow. Written in layman's terms its an easy read and a great help whether you are a beginner or a advanced keeper.

Guy's Reviews 1 Jan. 2001
By Guy - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a very good starting point for anyone interested in the aquarium hobby. It has information on setting up both marine and fresh water aquariums, plus a section at the back of the book that gives an overview on the different families of fish, both fresh water, marine and brackish water fish. It is a very good for beginners however the main downside to this book is that it is lacking information about water chemistry. This book is not to be overlooked however if you are going to buy it you are best not to stop at buying "only" this particular book before setting up your aquarium.

Excellent book for beginners 1 Aug. 2001
By Twiztid J - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book covers everything a beginning fish keeper needs to know. It has in depth explainations on the concepts that are hard to grasp. My favorite part of this book is the second half which covers many of the popular and unique fish that exist. While it doesn't give exact care for each fish, it tells what is neccesary to keep the species and similar fish. I reccomend this book to beginners who want to set up and learn how to properly maintain a healthy aquarium, wether it be fresh or salt water.
