Books

Post what books you've read or purchased and are planning to read.

Here are some of my recent reads since getting back into the hobby (no particular order) :

'The 101 Best Aquarium Plants' by Mary E Sweeney
'The 101 Best Tropical Fishes' by Kathleen Wood
'The 101 Best Freshwater Nano Species' by Mark Denaro and Rachel O'Leary
'Tropical Fishes, 500+ essential to know species ' by Mary E Sweeney, Mary Bailey and Aaron Norman
'Tropical Freshwater Aquarium Fish A-Z ' by Ulrich Schliewen
'Setting up a tropical Aquarium week by week' by Stuart Thraves
'The Marine Reef Aquarium' by Philip Hunt
'The New Aquarium Handbook' by Ines Scheurmann

These are my recently read books. I'm sure there are more laying around here. Share your Aquatic library!

Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them
In the halls of Valhalla
Where the brave may live forever.

I have read quite a few, including some very out-of-date antique books that are interesting because of how different things are now, or intriguing because of what's the same. I like old fishkeeping books that have hand-painted illustrations, they've very fun to look at. Here's some of my favorites:

A Guide to Aquarium Fishes and Plants by Arne Schiotz
Aquarium Owner's Manual by Gina Sandford
The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Aquarium Fish and Fish Care by Mary Bailey and Gina Sandford
Fish Behavior in the Aquarium and in the Wild by Stephan Reebs
You and Your Aquarium by Dick Mills
300 Questions About the Aquarium by Petra Kölle
Aquarium Fish by Ulrich Schliewen
The Simple Guide to Freshwater Aquariums by David E. Boruchowitz
Breeding and Raising Angelfishes by Ed Stansbury
Catfish by Oliver Lucanus and Gary Elson
What a Fish Knows the Inner Lives of Our Underwater Cousins by Jonathan Balcombe
Aquaria Fish Management and Care of the Aquarium and Its Inhabitants by Frank Lee Tappan

The last one, by Frank L. Tappan, requires special mention. It's a very old book- 1911- from the days when fishkeeping was a brand new hobby and pretty much only goldfish and paradise fish were kept. It's fascinating. You can read the entire text online.

Ecology of the Planted Aquarium by Diana Walstad
Nature Aquarium World (all three volumes as well as the Complete Works volume) by Takashi Amano
Aquarium Plants by Christel Kasselmann
are the ones I can think off the top of my head, as I refer to them quite often. There are a few others in my collection, but I will have to check.
