This first book contains photos of dozens of tanks ranging from very small to very large, and for each tank there is a listing of data which characterizes it: Photographing date, tank dimensions, water content, lighting, filtering, substrate, CO2 supply, fertilization, water change, and the levels of temperature, pH, GH, KH, Nitrite, Nitrate, CO2 and O2. In this book there is hardly any info on the fish and plants portayed in each tank.
Breathtaking photos and exacting descriptions (of both the photography techniques and the plants, stones, substrates, etc. used to create the scenes are included. I would've given it the full 5 stars, but..like most amazing 'how-to' books, these scenes are more of a nirvana that aqariums could wish to attain instead of practical set-ups for Joe everyman. However, even the lush (and very expensive) plant materials and displays can serve as inspiration for current or potential aquarium owners to harmonize their little underwater worlds with nature...instead of masking it over with horrid fluorescent colors.
While this book is very inspiring, it is not a comprehensive planted aquarium book. You would do well to purchase this book alongside a general "how to" book on planted Aquaria.
