Books are invaluable to all fish owners, from beginner to advanced. If you are new to fish keeping here are titles I recommend to get your aquatic library started.
This is an excellent beginner book that explains what you need to get started, how to maintain your tank, how to choose fish, and how to care for them. Even young fish enthusiasts will find this book interesting and easy to understand. The one weak point is the small number of fish species that are profiled.
The more I read this book, the more I like it. It covers virtually everything a new aquarium owner needs to know and presents it in an interesting way. There are lots of photos and practical advice throughout the book, and it's well worth the investment!
This guide covers all setup and care in a very concise and easy to understand way. Although the number of species covered is limited, the information is excellent. Gina shares many of her own personal experiences, offering tips that are often omitted from standard reference books. That alone is worth adding it to your library.
Don't like the slim size fool you - this book is full of lots of aquarium problem solving tips. Information is well organized, covers a wide range of topics, and is written in an easy to read humorous style. Be sure to price shop - I've seen some pretty big price ranges on this book. They have also come out with a paperback version that is more inexpensive.
