This unusual book, now in its 10th edition, already caused an international furore in its original American edition. The author, a biologist and enthusiastic aquarist, used her extensive physiological and chemical knowledge to make her aquariums better and easier to maintain. Her aim is to achieve cost-effective aquaristics with as little technology, chemicals and time spent on maintenance measures as possible through targeted planting and very simple methods. This principle has worked in her aquariums and those of her readers for many years. There are plants that inhibit algae growth or have a detoxifying effect on polluted water, a well-chosen combination of fish, plants and substrate that makes frequent water changes unnecessary or even harmful, simple maintenance management that does without the many aids such as water conditioners, fertilisers or algaecides? Curious? Then read this book!

Reader comments/review:
  • “BOOK OF THE MONTH” (DATZ 5/2006)

  • “I wish there were books like this on fishy topics too.”
  • “The best book I have ever read on the subject of aquatic plants!”
