Aquarium Plant Paradise by Takashi Amano

By Takashi Amano

Every person may still personal at the least one Takashi Amano publication, and while you're attracted to tetras and different small Amazon fish, this is often nearly as good a spot as any to begin. yet be warned - this isn't a beginner's advisor or a technical exposition on planted tanks. What it truly is, is a set of attractive photos (with short technical information plus a couple of layout tips) in order to encourage you to include a number of the components (or a whole layout) into your individual tanks.
