    Great text This is a great reference text for some common species as well as the unknown ones; especially if you want a quick reference of a variety of species to create a “species” or “community” tank this book will be helpful in decision making. The book gives good details regarding the expected size of the fish, general behavior and environment just to name a few. The photos contained within the text are well detailed. I would recommend this book to beginners and intermediate aquarists.
