Advanced Marine Aquarium Techniques by Jay F. Hemdal

As per usual I read the blurb about the book which promises all the usual things that every other 'new and all-encompassing' aquarium book does and 9 times out of 10 they contain all the same information as all the other books you have seen and read before.

This one has new information! It is not a bible, a person looking to set up an aquarium would struggle with the information in this book. It is exactly what it says on the tin, a book full of ADVANCED MARINE TECHNIQUES. I have read many books on the subject and have not found information like this in them.

Ecology of the Planted Aquarium by Diana Walstad

A real scientific book on the basic ecology of aquariums. This is perfect for all those people who are sick and tired of buying "new and updated" aquarium books, only to find out they are full of the same old advice as the other 150+ books they have bought/read before.

Animal Physiology: Adaptation and Environment by Knut Schmidt-Nielsen

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes Physiology Easy, 13 Feb 2004
Schmidt-Nielsen is an invaluable addition to any zoologists book collection. It covers all subjects neccesary for physiology modules, from electric production in eels to the workings of neurones and hormones in all animals. All concepts are explained well and to degree level, but are written in a way that is eaily read and digested, a perfect book for the student who is a bit bogged down in the subject. THIS BOOK IS A PURCHASE YOU WILL NOT REGRET!!
