Disappointing black & white photos
on 27 December 2006
Whilst this book is undoubtedly useful to the beginner, which I was when I bought it, the fact that all the photos are in black & white is a major drawback.
Overall the book is easy to read and full of useful tips, although now i am more experiemced I would have to disagree with some of his advice. For example I think that a UV sterilizer is a must to prevent disease in the tank.
To accompany this book I thoroughly recommend you also buy a book called Marine Fishes by Scott W Michael. Illustrated in full colour, it covers over 500 species of fish and gives you lots of useful information to assist you in choosing the correct fish for your aquarium
