I have been away from fish keeping for a long time. I am ready to go back, and I wanted a book to help re-acquaint me with aquarium plants. This book is a good guide with sections on aquascaping, suggested fish for certain plant types, maintenance of plants, etc. A great book for those wishing to go back to fish keeping or those just getting into fish keeping.

The book is rather primitive. Could be good for beginners.
