Reviews about Aquarium Care of Livebearers (Animal Planet® Pet Care Library) (7):
Obong
This is a very interesting book. It's probably required reading for anyone who wants to breed livebearers, be they guppies, mollies, swordtails or platys. It dispels any myths that these 'aquarium firsts' aren't challenging. I learned about how mixing species within a particular genus results in hybrids that are not as hardy as the original species, so for anyone who wants to breed these fish or even keep them, Dengler-Coletti's words are echoing in my head: ONLY ONE SPECIES PER GENUS, PLEASE! Now my problem is I have a fish that doesn't fit a species and is some mix that Coletti warned about.
There's alot of advice on feeding these fish and even a recipe for frozen fish paste...I have started feeding my fish a wider variety of foods and she's really perked up after being treated for fin rot. I like especially the photos of Dengler-Coletti's outdoor water gardens, large plastic laundry buckets filled with aquarium media and overflowing with amazing plants. These are kept outside on the patio and require no heating during the summer, and then fish are taken back inside when September hits. Some fun photos of 'the kids' with their hands in the buckets of guppies.
The pictures of wild guppies (few and far between) are really special. If one is looking to specialize in these healthier, more realistic versions of what is sold in pet stores now (day-glo, metallic blends) then the author advises to go to an aquarium society and buy from them. If you join, local auctions can be your ticket to acquiring a new breed. In any case this book gives very scientific advice for breeding livebearers for show, sale or fun. This book also has an endangered species list if you want to keep an aquarium for livebearers (goodieds) extinct in the wild.

This was also an excellent book and resource for information and care of livebearer fish! We purchased multiple books on fish when my daughter got her aquarium.

A comprehensive little book on the subject of Livebearers, one of the most popular tropical fish around that does not lay eggs but give birth to young fries instead. The livebearers has been bred in many forms and a multitude of colours, such as guppies, mollies, platies and swordtails.The book gives all the information that you are likely to require, either for breeding these lovely fishes or simply making sure that they are happy and healthy in your tank.

Very nice overview of everything you need to get started with keeping and breeding livebearers. Nice section with species profiles as well.

I would have never bought this book if I saw it in person. I learned all of these extremely basic things by googling it. I should have returned the book, but it took me a little while before I picked it up.
Most of the information on livebearing tropical fish is old and dated, and very little covers information on either goodeids (a group of livebearers from Cnetral Mexico) or some of the more exotic species. And many of the books are written by Europeans from a European perspective. I'm happy to say that this book solves these problems! There is anformation on the more exotic species of livebearing fish, but there is also information on care written from an American perspective discussing equipment currently available in American retail stores. Ted also includes contacts of various livebearer groups.
But don't get the idea that this book is only for advanced hobbyists. There is a lot of basic information on aquarium care that applies to the succesful keeping of all tropical fish. This information is useful and understandable to almost all levels of hobbyists. And it is profusely illustrated with excellent photos which are unique to this book.
Thanx, Ted!!!!
