    A great guide for those starting a new aquarium, 9 Dec 2001

    This review is from: Aquarium Fish (DK Handbooks) (Paperback)
    This handbook is a clear and concise guide to setting up a new aquarium, containing instructions, different set-ups available, plants, and colour photographs to identify the fish. You are also told the habits and mannerisms of each fish, which is invaluable when working out which fish to put together. I found this useful to help me set up my fist community. A great book!

    This review is from: Aquarium Fish (DK Handbooks) (Paperback)
    `Aquarium Fish’ is an outstanding guide to fish species from Dick Mills and DK publications. It pays to be aware from the outset that this is solely about fish species and not their general care and health and if that is the type of book you are after I would recommend `You and Your Aquarium’ by the same author. This book is lavishly illustrated throughout and each species is generally given at least half a page (occasionally a whole page and very rarely three to a page) to explain their features, traits and specific details. Each entry looks at which family each fish is from, species, size, habitat, diet, tank levels, temperament and general information that is relevant to that fish. There are also some small chapters at the start looking at how fish are grouped, how they adapt to their environments and also very basic information on fish anatomy. The chapters are headed Tropical Freshwater Fishes, Coldwater Freshwater Fishes, Tropical Marine Fishes and Coldwater Marine Fishes, with each chapter being further subdivided for ease of use. This is best used in conjunction with a good fish care guide, like the one recommended at the start of my review, and this particular book would be great for those who are getting more into their fish keeping or really wish to research their fish before purchase and setting up of a home aquarium. This is a specialised book but still manages to be fascinating.

    Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

    Verified Purchase(What is this?)
    Best suited to the ‘total’ beginner rather than someone with at least any idea what tropical fish keeping requires, this is an all round lovely read. The photographs are clear and colourful in typical DK fashion, and the explanatory reading is of course informative and well written. As an experienced keeper myself, I did discuss certain aspects with a friend and we did agree that the book had tendecies to over-worry on certain aspects of care, and their were also a couple of anomalies; such as in one paragraph, the writer claims you should never put your hand in to avoid contaminating the water. A few pages later, a photo and text tells you to put your hand in the water for general purposes.. Hardly an easy thing to miss out on.

    It’s at a good price and well suited for introducing fish to a family of young’uns and about teaching children the moral important of caring for pets. Well done DK!
