Stuart Thraves is brand manager of a leading aquarium company.
[Review of previous edition: ] Tropical fish tanks are beautiful and soothing; the set-up, however, is less relaxing. It takes two weeks before you can put in your first fish and 10 weeks before the tank becomes a living ecosystem. Don't despair. This book gives you easy-to-follow week-by-week instructions with graphic illustrations to ensure success. You're also introduced to 50 aquarium plants, 100 popular [tropical] freshwater fish, and tips for ongoing maintenance. It's better than watching TV!--Liz Grogan"Good Times" (10/31/2009)
