Lavishly illustrated, comprehensive, and accessible, this is the first book on the market to provide care and identification information on all types of fish for every possible environment, from indoor aquariums to outdoor ponds. The Encyclopedia of Aquarium & Pond Fish contains a directory of more than 800 of the most popular pet fish species—freshwater, saltwater, coldwater, and tropical—showing not only what each fish looks like, but what food they eat, which species they can cohabitate with, how big they grow, and much more.
The book also includes a thorough guide to the general principles of fish care, from choosing the right type of fish for your lifestyle, to constructing a tank or pond, to setting up a complete ecosystem with multiple fish and plant species. With beautiful, full-color photographs to accompany the incredible wealth of information, it’s both a joy to look through and an indispensable resource for any fishkeeping enthusiast.
