I referred to the magazines because several magazines that we know often release issues monthly with more updates whereas a book is simply compilation of information and nothing more is added to it once published. Tropical Fish Hobbyist (USA), Practical Fishkeeping (UK) and several others receive positive reviews for up-to-date articles. There is always a new single species of fish discovered every week. Authors there also relate their experiences about the fish.
As for forums, you get to interact with several people and able to relate their experiences to you so you get the idea of what is the general consensus and what else you need to know. The websites, if updated from time to time, are just as reliable though most tank size mentioned for a fish is either misleading or exaggerating.
