Whats the name of that book? I forgot.

Hey all,

Im trying to remember the name of a book my friend had about freshwater aquarium fish (This was in 97-98 but I know it was a popular book). It was a rather thick book with profiles of each fish including pictures. I think they've had updated volumes as well.

Sorry if that info is too vague.

Inne's Exotic Aquarium Fish springs to mind. Almost any public library should have a copy (might be an old one, but the profiles don't really change, they just add more)

I don't know if this is it, but Simon & Schuster's Guide to Freshwater and Marine Aquarium Fishes certainly fits the bill.

Tank 30 gallon (36x12x16)
Hardware 96W PC 6500K, Rena Filstar XP1, DIY yeast CO2
Substrate 3" Eco-complete
Plants Crypt(Cryptocoryne wendtii), Wisteria(Hygrophila difformis), Moneywort (Bacopa monnieri), Rotala(Rotala indica), Java fern (Microsorum pteropus), Hornwort (Ceratophyllum demersum)
Inhabitants 6 zebra danios(Danio rerio), 2 Kuhlii Loaches(Acanthophthalmus kuhlii), 2 Badis (Badis badis)

See how I made my DIY CO2 system here!

Axelrod comes to mind. Hes the author so search for his books. He has pretty much cataloged every aquarium fish on Earth.
