Freshwater Aquarium Fish is a "window shopping" trip guided by an aquarium specialist ready to offer advice. The directory details every species appropriate for a freshwater aquarium. While most require a heated aquarium, other varieties can be kept in an unheated one (such as bloodfin tetras, white clouds and the beginner classic, goldfish).

The book organizes the freshwater aquarium species in major groups, among them: Cichlids (such as angelfish and discus); Catfish; Cyprinids (such as barbs, danios, koi and goldfish); Characoids (such as tetras, neons and piranhas); Loaches and suckers; Gouramis (such as bettas, paradise fish and snakeheads); Rainbow fish and blue-eyes; and Livebearers (such as mollies and platies).

This comprehensive and useful reference is from a highly respected fish keeper with more than 50 years' experience. His advice and guidance will be welcomed by amateur fish keepers of any age and expertise.
