Are there any good Aquarium books that teach you about different fish, behavior, etc. as well as proper aquarium plants and how to decorate your fish tank?

I found this book informative for plants when I was starting out a couple years back:

Amazon.com: Encyclopedia of Aquarium Plants (9780764155215): Peter Hiscock: Books

Pros: It covers the basic science and gives you some idea of what some of the common plants look like. Talks about various biotope type tanks and setups. It is a nice color print book with lots of pictures. It isn't overly expensive.

Cons: It doesn't talk about the fish a lot beyond mentioning some that are compatible with plants. It doesn't provide any specific equipment recommendations, but then you can always get that here.

I don't have any more fish oriented recommendations to offer, at least none that are anywhere near current. Perhaps others will.
