A must-have, beginner-friendly guide to keeping fish, Freshwater Aquariums by David Alderton is the ideal primer. After learning what fish are anatomically speaking, how they evolved, how they breathe, how they move, where they live, and how they behave, you’ll then learn how to set up the tank, from figuring out how many fish to setting up equipment, filtrations, plants, and more. Choose your fish via a detailed catalog of the seven categories of freshwater fishes: Cyprinids, Characins, Cichlids, Anabantoids, Toothcarps, Catfish, and others. The purchasing, maintenance, and feeding of fish are described in considerable details, and the author gives a basic overview of breeding and keeping fish healthy as well.
A must-have, beginner-friendly guide to keeping fish, Freshwater Aquariums by David Alderton is the ideal primer. The opening chapter provides solid information about what fish are anatomically speaking, how they evolved, how they breathe, how they move, where they live, and how they behave. From there, you’ll learn how to set up the tank, as well as select the right size, figure out how many fish, and set the tank, equipment, substrate, heating, lighting, filtrations, plants, water chemistry, and more. Choosing the freshwater fishes that appeal to the reader is the subject of “Introducing the Categories of Fish,” which schools readers in seven categories: Cyprinids (goldfish, minnows, and barbs), Characins (tetras), Cichlids (oscars, angelfish, and discus), Anabantoids (gouramis, bettas/Siamese fighting fish, and paradise fish), Toothcarps (guppies, swordtails, platies, black mollies, and killifish), Catfish, and others (loaches and Chinese algae eaters). The purchasing, maintenance, and feeding of fish are described in considerable details, and the author gives a basic overview of breeding and keeping fish healthy as well.
