Books?

I was wondering if there are any good books? I saw one today by Tyosho Sageti or something. He was japanese and the book was white. I really liked it. Does any one know the name of it?

I found a GREAT small manual called "Aquarium Plants Manual". It's published by Barron's and written by Ines Sheurmann.

The reason I like it, is because it is cheap, it is concise and it really is great to have on-hand as a reference book. I found it at my LFS and it is a great resource. It shows how to prune various plants, talks about hardiness and light requirements, and also has great pics of how the plants should look when healthy or sick.

For beginners, it's terrific.

I have one called 'You & Your Aquarium" by D.Mills

It is really well written, has tons of great photos and illustrations and is an awesome reference guide for fish and plant species as well as diseases and general maintenance advise.

This list is great. Something this site has needed since day one was a freshwater suggested readings list. We have one for salt.

Keep the ideas comming. Once we have a good list Ill make up a suggested readings list with links to amazon.

I also Checked out used book stores and once again there were lots of refrence there aswell Aqurium fish atlas but the dates were behind and we all know how the Scientific names of species tend get altered with time. So i left it on the shelf.

Last fall I picked up Takashi Amano's "Nature Aquarium World". AWESOME!!!

Great for pictures and layouts, very inspirational. NOT good on technical details (lighting, subsrate, ferts, etc...)

The aquascapes are amazing, I will never come close to his work. Also, he is a pro photographer so he really knows how to get the best shots of everything. All his work is worth looking at ,at the very least, if not purchasing.
