    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. :arghh:

    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.

    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.

    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.
