Have you ever wished you could wave a magic wand and transform the goldfish bowl you had as a child into an aquatic wonderland?

First things first. You do realize that you gotta' have a plan, right? You know, kind of like plan your work and work your plan? Before you run off to the pet store and start scooping up fish in a net you need to learn a little bit more about "fish keeping."

"Fish keeping?" Yep, that's right, "fish keeping." Or, in a more eloquent description, "keeper of fish." Did you know that "fish keeping" is actually dated as far back as medieval times? Well it's true. But don't worry, you don't have to build your aquarium as large as a moat.

If any of this is striking a chord within, you need some help before you embark on your "fish keeping" adventure and we highly recommend you acquire a copy of Your Guide to Tropical Freshwater Fish Aquariums. It's definitely just what the doctor ordered for "fish keeping 101."

  • Basic Fish Anatomy - learn to distinguish between the different types by their body configuration.
  • Furnishing your aquarium - first the basics, light, heat, filter
  • Water quality is very important - learn how to "keep it clean."
  • Then comes the fun stuff - how to select gravel, plants and other interior design elements and accessories.
  • Adding the fish - learn all about the most popular tropical freshwater fish - how many you should buy considering the tank size, should you have more than one species and how and where to buy your fish.

About the Author

David Illes

David Illes set up his first aquarium when someone suggested that watching the colorful, lively fish might help him to unwind and relax.

As the number and variety of his fish grew, friends became interested and began asking him questions or even wanted him to help them set up their own tanks.

Now, David has compiled this book based on his own experience and the questions from those people who he has helped introduce to the fascinating hobby of freshwater tropical fish aquariums.

He said, "I'm not an expert, just a hobbyist that has got a lot of enjoyment from my fish."

"I hope that readers will find all the information they need about the types of fish and how to care for them in my book."
