just bought encyclopedia of aquarium & pond fish
Hey I just bought encyclopedia of aquarium & pond fish by David Alderton. Great book! It has a nice bit of information on all types of fish inverts and plants used in the aquarium & pond, fresh, salt, and brakish. I stayed up til about 12 last night reading in it. Very nice book 400 pages.

Sounds like a perfect way to spend the evening. :-)

I know the feeling. ALthough I am not familiar with your new book, I am sure it was very informative and enjoyed.
Also try looking into Hans Baensch Aquarium Atlas. i believe they have either 4 or 5 volumes. Great book on fish and plants with specific species info and pics.

rsheets, are we going to have a new expert on the forum? Noticed you have already been putting the book to good use! :-)

Hmmm...Any snails mentioned there? I wonder what it says about goldfish. I'd be interested to know both accounts. I haven't read that book although I have quite more than a dozen books here on aquaria, etc.

Hummm funny.

Not much on fresh water inverts. But lots if info about koi and gold fish.

What does it say about goldfish? I am eager to know this one.

Yea, you must think I love to type books huh?!! Sorry, but I can't type that much stuff. I'm not a good or fast typer. What would you like to know?

I was hoping to know everything written It's not bad to type at least 40,000 characters in an hour but I guess this is just one of my habits. I remember vividly typing some block info if I cannot get my scanner to connect well to my pc.:rofl:

You crack me up! There are pages of info about goldfish. Go check it out, maybe you could go by the book store and look through it. It's a big thick book in the aquarium section next to the dog, cat, and bird section.
