Description:
This book is written to fill the gap between the simple guides, those small books on special topics, and the big books only a few hobbyists need...and for which fewer have the funds. It offers mega-doses of information, concentrated so that it is informative and interesting. Included in this book are photos of over 600 species of fish and 100 aquatic plants, yet this is not an encyclopedia of fish and plants but a practical guide on the keeping, care, breeding and adaptation of aquarium fish and plants. For both biological and aesthetic reasons, we feel live plants and fish belong together. It is a World Class Atlas for the dedicated aquarist.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Very good book for the beginer or advanced hobbiest
Cons: A few mistakes, like the size of some fish, but not many.

 
A must have for anybody that is interested in keeping tropical fish. It has all the common fish and alot you will probably never see and this is just volume 1.

I paid alot for a new copy but you can find good used copies for a lower price.
