I just got this aquarium book....

I just bought this book up at Walden Books and I wanted to get some people's opinions on the quality of info in it. It's titled Simon & Schuster's guide to Freshwater and Marine Aquarium Fishes including plants, amphibia, reptiles, & invetebrates.

Based on the info in this book I was thinking of getting these plants for my tank (which I usually keep water temp at the high end of 70 up to 82 degrees)
Here is the list: Anubias Lanceolata, Cryptocoryne Lingua, Ceratopteris Thalictroides, Labelia Variegata, Nomaphila Stricta, and Riccia Fluitans

Tank description:
10 gal planted FW

sand substrate with some pebbles
Tetratec DW24-2

2 adult (1M 1F) Mollies
1 "teenage" male Molly (Silver Lyretails)
100s of pest snails
soon to add: 1 Clown or Dojo Loach
interested in: 3 Threadin Rainbow Fish (1M 2F)
