I've been quite underwhelmed by some of the Barron's aquarium books I've seen. Hope this one's somehow better.

Barron book are short and to the point. I don't think they've made a really good one since the original aquarium plant manual came out - which is outstanding. I will probably buy this one anyway.

I say give that money to TPT and just be active on this forum. That book will be outdated in less than a year and this forum is updated every second. There is much much more information here than there will ever be in a book. You also get a sweet colored username too

I've always found (from the books that I used to check out from the library) that the books have the same information (if not less, or just outdated) that's available on forums. But then again all of the books at my library on aquariums are from the late 90s. Let us know if it's a good book
