This is a definitive guide to identifying and keeping freshwater and marine fishes. It provides everything you need to get started as a fish-keeper - the ultimate practical guide to setting up any type of aquarium. It includes clear step-by-step photographs and easy-to-follow instructions for planning, building, stocking and maintaining your aquarium. It contains a comprehensive fish identifier - hundreds of colour pictures of the world's most popular fish in their natural locations and habitats and how the professionals keep them. It is fully illustrated with over 650 colour photographs and specially commissioned artworks. This comprehensive guide contains all the information and advice you need to ensure you get the most out of your aquarium. The book is divided into two sections. The first half explains in how to set up your aquarium, how to select the type of fish you want and how to maintain a healthy tank environment.
There is a separate sub-section that is devoted to accommodating the special requirements of marine fish and each topic is treated with a hands-on approach. The second part of the book looks at the fish themselves and the general merits, habitats, feeding and breeding requirements of many fish in each of the major groups. Written in a no-nonsense, practical style and illustrated throughout, this is the book that every aquarium owner must own.
