Discussion in 'Aquascaping' started by Dave Spencer, 10 Jul 2007.
Has anybody got this book by Takashi Amano, and an opinion on it?
Too late! I have gone and bought it.
It contains a lot of the usual fare; beautiful tanks and excellent photography. The book goes in to aquascaping and putting together a tank a bit more than usual, but those with AquaJournals will find some of the pictures familiar.
There is a great looking tank on p.52/53 in my opinion, but Riccia is the in thing for me at the moment. Judging by the printing date on the book, it only leaves me ten years behind.
Where did you buy it Dave, any bargains online?
I got the book from Amazon, but I can`t remember what I paid for it because I ordered some other books also. I would say that it is not as good as the Nature Aquarium World series of three books.
Ok cheers Dave probably buy it anyway, had my eye on it a while back.
Ive had this book for a number of years now. Its not that indepth, sorry to dissapoint.
The English aquajournal are far more informative than this book.
Having said that ,it is a nice book to own, only very thin book.
are the english aqua journals available on back order?
I'm pretty sure they are...
Yes they are, looky here. http://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/index.p ... Path=16_26
Volumes 33,34,35,36 and 38 are must buys, and all in English. The Janese versions are just as good for insparation.
I need to start getting some aquajournals. I will look into your recommendations Graeme.
hi there, have you seen the web site called http://www.aquamoss.net its asite dedicated to moss growing. regards john.
I love the book itself but pretty much the more recent ADA catalogs have great info in them too. The Aquajournals, both english and japanese are amazing and I would recommend any of them. I have LOADS of aquajournals so if you want me to recommend some good ones around your specific area of interest please let me know.
