A totally fresh look at fish.

Focus on Freshwater Aquarium Fish is a valuable reference for fishkeepers at all levels. The book features a wide variety of fish illustrated in a dynamic way and offers practical advice for their care.

The book presents the fish based on their families or fishkeeping groups. These groupings consist of:

American and African Cichlids: bold inhabitants Characins: from tetras to piranhas Live-bearers: includes guppies and mollies Killifish: short-lived beauties Anabantids: air breathers including Bettas Danios, Minnows and Rasboras Catfish: found in tropic and temperate waters Rainbowfish: tropical fish at home in tap water Sharks and Loaches: bottomfeeders and efficient algae eaters Barbs: active and gregarious Oddballs: pufferfish, low-voltage eels, elegant predators and more Goldfish: a wide variety of a perennial favorite.

Each section opens with an overview that introduces the range of fish within that group and explores their adaptations. The images and text provide details of the mature size and main characteristics of each fish, its behavior in the aquarium and a brief look at how it breeds.

The bright, colorful photographs display the fish swimming rather than as static side views. This evokes a clearer sense of the personality of each species. Freshwater fishkeepers will be delighted at the beauty and choice available.
