    Do you have any good books about aquariums and fish-keeping? I'd be particularly happy about different books about fancy goldfish varieties ;)

    So far I've got Fancy Goldfish by Rick Hess and Erik L. Johnson, An Essential Guide to Keeping Goldfish by Bernice Brewster, Encyclopedia of Aquarium and Pond fish by David Alderton and Manual on Fish Health by Chris Andrews.

    You should definitely check them out! :D

    Thank youu very much :) Sorry I didn't see the other posts, mainly because there's such a load of posts around here o_o

    Edit: I checked them out and couldn't really find any helpful titles of books, rather other discussions...
    Have you btw read these books yourself? So you know that they're good? :)

    search engine (advanced) and topic only.

    those are book titles, but I haven't read them as I don't keep goldfish. Not sure if Rick reads the books, but if so he'd be your guy to ask (cooltow1).

    It is sort of strange the concept do not change the tech. does. Always a better way to improve old ideas and gadgets.

    They put a tremendous amount of time and resources in to heating these aquariums
