    Can anyone recomend a really good aquatic plant book? I’m looking for something with extensive, easy to ID pictures as well as as detailed care for a wide range of species.

    Thanks in advance.

    …and for inspiration, “Nature Aquarium World” by Takashi Amano is pretty unbeatable…

    I don’t know if I have an older version of the book that Eyrie mentioned but it’s called ‘The Encyclopedia of Aquarium Plants’ by Peter Hiscock.

    A fantastic book – tells you all about water quality, lighitng, Co2, nutrients etc, has a section on setting up various biotopes and half of the book is pics and profiles of plants – great book for anyone interested in aquarium plants.

    Jared, The tropicana catalogue is useful as a basic guide and you can order it from their website. It provides illustrations and photos of each plant as well as a short description and brief overview of requirements.

    I have volume 2 & 3 and have to agree with you both <img src="style_emoticons//smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” /> I think volume 2 is for up to 900mm tank and vol 3 900mm>>

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I’ve just picked up a copy of “The Aquarium Plant Handbook”. Produced by Oriental Aquarium in Singapore.

    For pics and descriptions on a huge range of plants it’s great. And it has a forward by the man himself, Takashi Amano.
