Found a good deal on Ebay for all 3 volumes and have been looking at the books all week. I highly recommend them to anyone interested in planted aquariums. I think that the first book was the best of the 3 but they are all good books without a doubt. The books are more pictures than information which is fine by me. If you get a chance check them out at the library or something , you can really get some good inspiration from them.

I've wanted to buy those books for a long time. Their price is what has excluded me from making the puchase. All three volumes, when new, cost as much as a pressurized CO2 system so I know where my priorities are! haha.

But I've actually been thinking lately about how bored I am with reading Aquarium Fish magazine and Tropical Fish Hobbyist. It's the same stuff, over and over again. For reefkeeping, I get my latest articles from online magazines, and with planted tanks, there really isn't much to glean from traditional aquaria publications. Those Nature Aquarium books are just what I need - inspiration for aquascapes, information on tank system designs, etc.

Could we ask how much you picked up the books for on Ebay?

I was able to get all 3 for $39 and $10 shipping. The price of them new was what always kept me from getting them too. I've spent so much on my aquariums already.
