    Awesome!

    There are so many things to consider when you establish an aquarium. Which fish need what type of water conditions. Which fish are predators, agressive, or shy. This book was the best guide I found that helped me pick out the fish that would be compatible. The many icons told me at a glance the basic needs and special attributes of each fish.
