I just received this book yesterday and I'm already finding it useful. I've been keeping fish for a little over two years (so I'm still new to the hobby, especially compared to others who have been at it from 20-40 years+). While I've learned quite a bit from being engaged in the hobby and partaking in online forums regarding the trade, I admit that there's a plethora of information I don't know and it seems there's something new to learn (even for the old pros) every single day.

One thing that I really wanted in a book, was basically an organized list of tropical fish that could be kept in the aquarium, with a quality photo, because looks are important to me. I love an interesting and beautiful fish in the aquarium and I love having options to choose from. Unfortunately, my options are limited to what I can find online (should I know the names), what I see in the local fish store, and many times I'm reliant on suggestions/recommendations from others in the hobby. This book gives me a direct source, where I can search through a variety of tetras, corys, etc. and pick/choose which I'd prefer to keep and see if they'll work in proposed setup.

I perused through the book with my daughter (which was fun, because she actually enjoyed it - she's 3) and I must say that I'm very impressed with the quality of the book, pictures and quantity of species profiles within. I will say, however, that the profiles are more generic than I'd prefer. They give a little backdrop on where they're from, their temperament, compatibility needs, maximum size and preferable water params, but lack on the specifics, such as pH, GH, temperature requirements, etc.

I really like it, though, because it gives me a great idea about what's out there, before I just settle for anything, and the generic descriptions are a good starting point. I can always look up the minute details online at a later date or invest in the Baensch Aquarium Atlas volumes (which I plan on doing next).

So, not sure what you find in a quality fish/aquarist book, but I would recommend it to anyone that has similar needs to mine.

A very expensive book with good photos but very little information on the fish which is the purpose of the book.
Deeroman
Good general info but not enough on individual fish. For example water parameters, PH, etc.
Awene
I love it.
Goltikree
Really helpful reference book.

I will add my vote to the other negative reviews of this book. The information in the opening sections on aquarium management is cursory and doesn't need to be there. Much better sources are available with better and far more comprehensive information.

The author's foreword promises that the book was written for amateur aquarists, and states that it will not cover " ...fishes completely unsuited to home aquarium care..." but then proceeds to list hundreds of species that are far too large for home aquariums. In addition text descriptions of many entries state that they aren't available in the retail trade! Coverage of fish genera is very uneven as well -- the Poeceleids (livebearers like guppy, platy and others) section contains 15 entries spanning 10 pages, while the Chichlid section is 234 pages long (almost 30% of the entire text!) and covers 350 species.

The three indexes are divided by the book sections, an unwelcome and unnessary feature that makes searches more difficult. The author condescendingly announces in the foreword that he has eliminated popular names from the index to avoid ''... cluttering up people's minds..." and then goes on to include a smattering of popular names in the index and individual entries often indexed by the first word in the name, e.g. Blue Ram. Older scientific names for fish that have been revised are also absent from the index and should have been cross-referenced in the index. A single merged index would have been far more useful.

The author also states that he has eliminated whole sections contained in his previous book, thereby limiting the "... number of pages so as not to become unwieldly and overly expensive". At five and a half pounds, 850 pages, and a price tag of almost $58, this bloated tome fails to deliver.

This book is great. Agree there are typos in the book, but I didn't find it too major. I like how the book contains a lot of new photos of the different fish. Some fish which are rarely shown in other books as well. great job on the short and sweet description. I like how this book strayed away from the Typical "You're fish will like in water that is 70-80 degrees in pH that is 7.0...etc etc" If you're buying a book with the word EXOTIC, you should already know these things. Less beginners information and more great photos. The paper quality is great, that is why it weighs a ton. My legs got sore supporting it. Needs a warning label saying "MUST READ ON TABLE" LOL! The little built in bookmark is awesome. KUDOS to whoever recommended adding that into the book. Price is at a decent level. I honestly think it's not so bad at all. The paper quality, Cover quality, new pictures and book size make it worth the price. I have paid much more for imported books from Japan that I can't even understand!!! Hope this review helps.
