Research suggestions please...


I'm been in the hobby a few months now. I will be setting up a 75g in about 9-10 months. I've been researching either doing a wet pet tank, a reef aquarium, or a planted freshwater tank.

For a variety of reasons I am leaning toward the planted tank option.

I have began reading some of the faq threads and articles here on the site, I also am about to start studying Diane Walstad's Ecology of the Planted Aquarium.

I would like to ask for some other suggestions of books I could read or other online resources you have found valuable.

Thanks for the direction.

i highly recommend Takashi Amano's books on plated aquaria--by far the best represted pictures and some reasonably informative tech specs.

i learned alot form this site alone, and some varoius other books like Aquarium Desings: Inspired by Nature by Peter Hiscock (general info) and The Aquarium Plant Handbook (fantastic plant info)

do your research--it is invaluable

I feel like everyone can benefit from reading "Nature Aquarium World" the first volume by Amano. I think you can actually get a lot more out of that book than anything ADA has done/shown/wrote since it.
