Description: Translated from the popular 1999 revised German edition, this text describes the temperature, water, fertilizer, and light needs of more than 300 aquarium plants. Artificial lighting - lamp types, color temperatures, and mounting - is discussed in detail and the author provides advice on choosing the right plants for an aquarium. Ecological factors, flower biology and morphology, and reproduction methods receive detailed coverage. The book contains 525 color photographs with nearly all plants depicted with fully developed submerged foliage. Many of the photographs of rare plants were published for the first time in the German edition. Botanists as well as professional and amateur aquarium keepers will find this book indispensable.

I finished reading the book yesterday. It is a extremely recommendable book. It contains a very complete and useful information about aquatic plants.

What I found amazing is the description of the natural habitat of the different plants.

The only small negative aspects is that it would be nice if the book should have had more photographs of the submerged plants.

ProsVery useful and complet information.
ConsAlmost none. In some cases more photos of the submerged plant could be better.
Would you recommend?yes
