Summary

Praise for the hardcover edition:
"For users looking for specific information on freshwater aquarium fish this will be a useful and interesting resource."
--American Reference Books Annual 2007

"Any home or library collection strong in aquarium references -- and many a fish store -- will find this packed with in-depth detail perfect for setting up an aquarium."
--The Midwest Book Review

This comprehensive full-color reference covers 500 of the most popular freshwater aquarium fish. It provides concise at-a-glance information on their behavior, diet and breeding along with guidance and recommendations on setting up a freshwater aquarium.

Substantive and well organized for easy navigation, the book satisfies a wide of needs. Beginners can start their hobby with confidence and experienced keepers can use the book as an authoritative reference.

The most important update of this edition is that species names have been changed in accordance with the latest international revisions, made to take into account recent DNA information. In all, about 120 names are updated.

Freshwater Aquarium Fish is a "window shopping" trip guided by an aquarium specialist ready to offer advice. The directory details every species appropriate for a freshwater aquarium. While most require a heated aquarium, other varieties can be kept in an unheated one (such as bloodfin tetras, white clouds and the beginner classic, goldfish).

The book organizes the freshwater aquarium species in major groups, among them: Cichlids (such as angelfish and discus); Catfish; Cyprinids (such as barbs, danios, koi and goldfish); Characoids (such as tetras, neons and piranhas); Loaches and suckers; Gouramis (such as bettas, paradise fish and snakeheads); Rainbow fish and blue-eyes; and Livebearers (such as mollies and platies).

This comprehensive and useful reference is from a highly respected fish keeper with more than 50 years' experience. His advice and guidance will be welcomed by amateur fish keepers of any age and expertise.
