Editorial Review

I bought this book about a year ago and I find it very useful as a quick reference. The information boxes and short discriptions help when deciding on the next friend you would like to invite into your tank. Also I find that the large color photos are very clear and easy to understand when trying to decide if the look and facts (behaviour, size, aquarium conditions, etc.) are right for starting a new tank or adding to a pre-existing one.
