Format: Hardcover
It's about time that a talented group of aquarium hobbyist (who are also biologists I believe) got together to write a book that the layman can understand and appreciate. You will not find convuluted passages common in the scientific literature. Each species account is well written and contains the information that the hobbyist wants.
Goldstein, Harper, and Edwards are well known hobbyist and if there are any real experts in the field, it's these guys.
This is an all around great reference for the North American native fish hobbyist.

11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on January 24, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This comprehensive reference volume will appeal to both specialty and general-interest libraries: American Aquarium Fishes provides over 118 color and over 200 black and white photos of various species of aquarium fish, providing detailed discussions on where to find native fishes, how to collect and transport them around the globe, and regional rules of collecting. The depth and detail and the vivid photos are impressive.

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Brian J. Torreano on February 9, 2004
Format: Hardcover
The book in its entirety is fairly good. The authors tried to cover a broad scope. This book may be useful for the breeder in that there is specific information on each species. Please note that you may need to combine the information in this text with information from other sources (print, web, etc.) to take complete care of your native fishes.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
American Aquarium Fishes by Robert J. Goldstein whose PhD is in microbiology and parasitology and is a member of The American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists, among others, is a reference that should be in the library of every aquarist who is interested in native American fish. Too little is written on this subject and this book covers ninety percent of everything you need to find, collect and keep these fish. The only drawback I see is that, although there numerous are color plates in the center section of the book, I would have liked to see all of the photographs in color. Bottom line? Anything I have read by this author is well worth the price of admission.
