    A good beginner’s guide and reference for keeping freshwater tropical fish This is a concise book that provides basic information on selecting combinations of fish focusing on species for 10 and 20 gallon auariums though with some species just for larger tanks The fish profiles include notes on adult size communal behavior recommended group size tank environment preferences feeding and breeding habits Color coding makes it easier to reference seperating the easier and peaceful fish from the aggressive and territorial species While I was familiar with the gallon per inch of fish rule of thumb I didn’t know different fish tend to hang out at different levels of the tank—top middle or bottom and occasionally combinations and how to use this information for a balanced tank The majority seemed to prefer a group of at least 3 which limits the number of species a 10 or 20 gallon tank can accommodate There are also a few suggested combinations of fish based on tank size After reading through the profiles of species the selection at the pet store no longer seems uite as overwhelmingThere are also profiles of fish to avoid some pretty creepy—fish that are aggressive large can survive for short periods out of the tank and will jump out given the chance I may have nightmares There’s also basic guidance on feeding and breeding Some of the feeding recommendations seemed unrealistic for a beginnercasual hobbyist ideally you should feed your fish small meals four times a day and feed them prepared live food or frozenfreeze dried that also must be prepared five times a week I barely manage to feed myself three times a day let alone prepare meals daily But the variety of foods seemed reasonable and interestingly some fish really like green beans

    This book was really informative The author did cover a lot of fishes and it must have been difficult to give information on all of them I liked the way she gave important and interesting facts on the fish but didn't go into so much detail on each that the reader was bored I found the information I was looking for for the most part But unbelievably I have one tropical fish I could not find in Wood's book

    This book is a good overview of many different fish However since it attempts to cover 101 fish as well as 33 to be avoided the depth of coverage for each fish leaves a lot to be desired The article in the back of the book by Mary Sweeney Preventing Stopping Common Fish Diseases is very helpful and made a great addition to this book
