Aquarium hobbyists will refer to this handbook time and time again for general information and for advice on dealing with everyday problems. The book's question-and-answer format is divided into six general categories that deal with all aspects of stocking and maintaining a home aquarium. They include selecting fish varieties, equipment for the home tank, fish anatomy and the traits of different varieties, compatible fish varieties for the aquarium, feeding and water maintenance, and recognising diseases and keeping a healthful tank environment. Each section has colour-coded page edges for fast and easy reference. The book features hundreds of colour photos plus information-filled tables and sidebars.
