    Is this magazine worth subscribing to?

    I had a subscription to this years ago and realy enjoyed it. It seems to be a little pricey now. I used to get 12 issues for $24.00.

    So I was wondering if anybody reads it anymore and if it's worth getting again?

    I got a few copies. For me not worth it. It now tries to do too many things at once.

    I had a subscription last year but didn't renew it. I personally found there was allot of info and stuff about fish or products I am not interested in. There was nothing about fish I am interested in or keep.

    As a newbie, I don't get much info from them.

    Your local library may carry copies. I read a few of them each time I go. Or if you have a library card, you can take them home to read. No subscription or $$$ outlay needed.

    I get them monthly and have for 3 years+ and have every issue dating back 10+ years thanks to my grandfather. I love the different articles, not for most practical applications, but Jack watley has great discus info, Jeff Rapps and a few others do a lot of input. Planted tanks are always covered and its a great all around hobbiest mag to edjucate beyond the normal stuff.

    I always recommend them.

    Is it worth it? I guess that depends how much enjoyment you get out reading them. I usually just borrow them from a friend, he has around 30 years worth of them. Mostly look at them if looking for a certain article.

    I now enjoy Amazonas Magazine more and so I read that. The photography is excellent. Content is good as well.

    You would make me extremely happy if you could look trough the magazines for late 1999 and scan the article where Ancistrus Claro is introduced. It's not available anywhere else and Dr. Knaack who wrote the article isn't the easiest person to reach.
