i just bought walstads book and its great, dont understand it all yet but theres always wikipedia. I also have a book called dwarf cichlids because i keep, yip, dwarf cichlids. The books to me are far more useful than browsing forums in certain respects. eg the dwarf cichlid book has information on where they actually collected the fish. Now if i were to ask what conditions to keep one type of fish in, there would be a hundred different answers, but if you try to recreate the conditions of where they were collected you can't go wrong. sometimes forums excel for first hand info on breeding/feeding etc but having the books is a must if you want to keep a level head.
