This atlas is excellent as a supplemental book in your aquatic library, but it shouldn't be your main reference. Dr. Axelrod does a great job of packing a lot of species between the covers, but the symbolic representations of care parameters for each species covered oversimplifies things too much (and aren't always entirely accurate), leaving out a lot of important (not-so-)subtleties in properly caring for them. Better to use the Baensch Aquarium Atlas as your main volume and refer to this book when needed. On the positive side, there is a very helpful and extensive section devoted to tank setup and maintenance and aquatic diseases and treatments towards the back of the book.Was this review helpful?
