Setting up and maintaining a themed aquarium requires careful planning for a correct and aesthetically pleasing balance of fish and plant life. This photo-illustrated book presents detailed instructions and specifications for several different attractive themed aquariums in any of three recommended sizes: 17 gallons (63 liters), 35 gallons (128 liters), and 55 gallons (200 liters). The author advises on selection of tanks, filters, heaters, lighting, plants, substrate, fish families to populate the tank, and miscellaneous decoration. He focuses on several geographically themed aquariums, which include populating a tank with compatible fishes from South America, Southeast Asia, North America, Australia, and Africa. He also advises on setting up tanks for cold-water fishes or for closely related species. All recommendations include water plants that are most appropriate for each fish grouping. The text is enhanced with approximately 70 color photos plus helpful checklists and attractive sidebars.
