Positive aspects of the product (pros): has a lot of good advice
Cons: could be better

The product title is slightly misleading. At least 20% of the book's tips are for people who have never, ever, ever set up a fish tank. However, even though I have not read ALL of the tips yet, there are some good ones in there. Some of the ideas presented are new to most fishkeepers and very interesting. A little outdated since it's from 2005 and lacking more detailed/key advice. Worthwhile read even though some of the tips are for

I tested 97% positive for Multiple Tank Syndrome
