I would like at least one book that has a good, basic listing of the common aquatic plants, along with large, clear pictures of the plants, simple icons regarding light, height, growth rate, co2, etc. with a general description of the plant's personality.
I'm not looking for a 300lb bible of all plants aquatic! I'm looking for a beginner's book. Something very basic, but still informative enough to help a person have some idea of whether the plant may work in their tank or not.
The internet is a fabulous resource which I use constantly. However, I would still like to have a book that I can mark, flag, comment, write, highlight, dogear, drag to LFS, and whatever else I want to do while I begin the process of trying to learn the various plants. All I know about are java moss, java fern, anubias, and a few others along that line. I'm know squat! Well, that's not entire true. I am gaining experience with algae.
If anyone knows of any books like this, please let me know. My current and future plants would thank you so much.
