Boruchowitz, the editor of Tropical Fish Hobbyistmagazine, has worked as a fish keeper for more than 60 years; his expertise and his inspiring vision of nanoaquariums are reflected in this comprehensive yet detailed guide to creating and maintaining aquatic minienvironments, both fresh- and saltwater. The book discusses the important elements concerning setup, equipment, and the wide range of specimens including fish, vegetation, coral, invertebrates, and amphibians. The author dispels myths and misconceptions about goldfish and other types of misunderstood species. Although this volume focuses on small aquariums, it lends itself to responsible and creative larger aquarium systems and will educate and inspire those who enjoy them. There is an engaging section on outdoor ponds and water features that complement Boruchowitz's concept of small aquatic ecosystems. Physically, this is a handsome hardcover with color pictures, tips, sidebars, resource lists, and an index for quick reference. Recommended for all pet-care and fish-keeping collections.
