    I have several of the new books, great photos in them...but none has all the fish I'm interested in...somewhat disappointing since none of the fish I'm interested in are especially rare or unique...

    The older books are okay too, but you have to sort through a lot of out-dated information in them...

    What about Dr. Axelrod's Atlas of Freshwater Aquarium Fishes? Go to ebay Half.com under books. You can get it there. It's a little expensive!

    I received mine yesterday, the 11th edition. I order it on amazon.ca, they have it now, so if you want it, go for it!
    At first I was very surprised because, there's not much text...
    But the number of picture is...wow!!!! And even if it's coded, the information are very clear...
    That's just an insane number of fish in just one book!!!!

    By the way, Dave, if you can give me a little advice (and if you pass by this thread...):
    I want to invest in another good books in fish, I've seen your list, but, I have to admit, that the Baensch encyclopedia is a little too much for me right now... I want less species than the Atlas give, and more information.
    I hesitate between:
    - Aquarium fishes of the world by Dr Axelrod
    - Encyclopedia of exotic tropical fishes for freshwater aquarium by Dr Axelrod
    - The Complete book of the freshwater aquarium : ... by Vincent Hargreaves
    - 500 freshwater aquarium fish (Greg Jennings editor).

    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    Another excellent book is the Aquarium Atlas by Dr Rudiger Riehl.

    Well over 600 different aquarium fish as well as over 100 aquatic plants with full coloured pictures of every fish and plant .

    Fantastic book ,very detailed.
