Hi everyone,

I often see people talking about Amano's book. And I think I found the "one":
But it also looks like that is a compilation of 3 books that he released on separate occasions.

I have The Ecology of The Planted Aquarium, The Optimum Aquarium, and I have George Farmer's book on the way too.

But I would love to also get my hands on some copies of the Amano ones that inspired so many people. Does anyone know if they are still in print and/or how I can acquire them/which ones are the "right" (often quoted) ones to acquire?

Amazon seems to not have the complete series available but it sometimes has the other ones.

Thanks!

Josh

Thanks @Nick potts !

Are all/assuming the complete works has all a must-read/have or are some “more must-have” than others?

I know local libraries used to have a service were you could request a book what they might not have for a nominal fee. They then resource it and loan it to you . At the prices they cost good way of seeing whether they are worth the cost

In my opinion the Complete Works is a must have, the others less so. Good luck finding them.

Let's have a laugh. For whatever reason I checked today - and it was on Amazon (a used copy (they're all used) :banghead:-- I went back and forth .. what if it's ripped!) ... I hesitate ... 10 minutes passes ... then it was gone. Next time, insta-buy. :)
