This book will find a place on the shelf of every serious aquarium hobbyist. It's a quick-reference source that provides information on all aspects of aquarium maintenance and water chemistry. You'll also find descriptions of the many varieties of fish and other aquatic animals and plants available to home aquarium owners. Approximately 1,000 terms cover everything from Amyloodinium (a fish parasite) to Zooxanthellae (a variety of algae). Entries are supplemented with black-and-white line art, plus a 32-page insert of full- color photos. Appendices feature a wealth of practical information in chart and table form.
