Review Date: Thu August 12, 2010 Would you recommend the product? No | Price you paid?: $7.99 | Rating: 2 

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Has some basic information on small fish (danios, rasboras, cories)
Cons: Drastically inaccurate information on anything above 5" regarding size and aquarium care

I am VERY glad I didn't use the information provided in this book when I was stocking my first tanks as a child. A 20 gallon for sorubim lima, a pimelodus catfish reaching over 1.5'? A 55 gallon for the 2' fire eel? A 30 gallon for a Oscar? I was horrified at some of the things that came up. It also totally lacks anything other than their bogus species articles. It's like talking to a bad PetSmart Employee. If you're looking at this book, put it back on the shelf.

10 gallon planted with betta
55 gallon Malawi Cichlids
120 with SA cichlids, Pleco and Pictus Catfish
