For plant identification, I like The Aquarium Plant Handbook by Oriental Aquariums.

Or, you can just go to www.tropica.com for an online resource with most of the more common plants plus some of the more unusual/newest ones.

As fare as I know, there's not really any books that cover designs and layouts in any depth. Sure, you have amano's books, but that's just alot of photo's of his tanks, it dosent really tell you much about the concept and progress of the tank. there's alot of websites and stuff around, but it's mostly just a page or two, not something that cover the topic in deapth.

Aqua Journal magazines are pretty good. They have step by step layout guides.
i'll go to ask my local Japanese bookstore. i have to bring a sample or publiser name something like that. i was going to order Japanese Wrestling Magazine, but they want me to bring one as sample. :lol: ... there are few books/magazines published by ADA that listed on the back of my ADA 2003 Catalog. hopefully they can find some for me. :wink:

I purchased my copy (and the Tropica book) from the Aquatic Gardners Association web site (www.aquatic-gardeners.org) bookstore.
