My Fish and Aquarium Books

The following is just a list of the books on fish and aquaria that I have collected over the years. Of course, there is always a long list of books I still want, especially some of the more expensive ones! I'm a real sucker for fish books, and have little resistance to parting with my money when I see one that I want! I also subscribe to 5 fishkeeping magazines. There's always more to learn in this hobby!
