4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but not a guide, 16 May 2003

This review is from: Aquarium Plant Paradise (Hardcover)
Everyone should own at least one Takashi Amano book, and if you are interested in tetras and other small Amazon fish, this is as good a place as any to start. But be warned - this is not a beginner's guide or a technical exposition on planted tanks. What it is, is a collection of stunning photographs (with brief technical details plus a few design pointers) which will inspire you to incorporate some of the elements (or a complete design) into your own tanks.

4.0 out of 5 stars A visually beautiful book with plenty of information., 4 July 2001
This review is from: Aquarium Plant Paradise (Hardcover)
I have just recived this book and have really enjoyed looking through it. As usual the pictures make the book worth buying by them selves. From a practical point of view I was a little dissapointed as all the aquariums shown were done for Tetras. I use Takashi Amanos books as a reference point for my business and had hoped from the title that it would have a little more about the plants and would cover larger aquariums as well. Having said all that its a lovely book I wouldn't be without it. I shall just have to do an aquarium for Tetras now!

4.0 out of 5 stars A picture book - not for all, 15 May 2006
By 
This review is from: Aquarium Plant Paradise (Hardcover)
Hi,

this book is just packed with Amano's usual pro quality pictures and a few bits of info about the aquarium. It is geared towards tanks from 40-200ltrs I felt, with most of them being around the 60cm size. I'm not complaining as that's the size of tank I want to work with but it does mean that it's not for all. TBH, I'd save your money and put it towards either his Nature Aquarium books or the Diana Walstad book.

Thanks,

Chris
