Oh man, this is one of the most ridiculous fish books I have *ever* read. There are a some good aquascape examples contained within, but if you actually read some of the things they suggest, you'll bust a gut laughing. The one that sticks in my mind: 4-6 oscars in a 20 gallon tank. Seriously, that was the stocking suggestion. And then there are the bizarre aquascaping suggestions like ball bearings, metal whisks (the kitchen impliment), and glass Christmas ornaments. Obviously the author of this book is more concerned with having the fish match the couch than actually meeting their environmental needs. Worth flipping through for a laugh but I would never actually buy it.
