    Fish Tank Tips ~ From Knowing Very Little To Knowing A Lot Yesterday I knew very little about fish tanks. Today I’m much wiser, thanks to Alison Benjamin’s terrific book. This book is chock full of need-to-know tips and related photos. Who would’ve thought there’s so much to know for a wannabe pet-fish owner. Heck, I thought you’d only need to buy the tank, pour in a number of good looking get-along fish, sprinkle in some fishy food, then throw in a hook attached to a fishing rod (kidding!). This book is a prize. Now I’m hooked!

    Just what I needed! I’ve been eager to move from my one-beta glass bowl to a more complex setup, so I’ve read Ms. Benjamin’s book with a great interest. HOW TO SET UP A FRESHWATER FISH TANK is right to the point, yet a very thorough guide detailing each step of the way, from getting the required equipment and components to cleaning, filtration, feeding, and breeding issues. The bad news is, I realize now that it takes more work and preparation than I thought, the good news is that I have all the info I need in one place. Thanks, Alison!
