Is Rob Holland a native English speaker? The poor grammar, word choice, formatting and illogical organization would lead you to think the book may have been translated into English. Even so.. If sold to the US consumer market through , someone with English writing skills should have edited it. The content is VERY basic. Very little is Cichlid specific. I thought I was going to learn much more from the author's "20 years" experience. I was seriously disappointed. He implies in the text that experts on Cichlids go to him for advice. I find that very hard to believe.
If you are wanting to learn about Cichlid fish this is definitely the guide you need to purchase. It tells you everything you need to know about getting started on having some of the most beautiful freshwater fish . This is so informative about different types of cichlids and the areas they come from. The maintenance on the fish, Ph level ,what type of substrate how to check your water in the tank to make sure it is safe environment for your fish to maintain good health. How to set up your aquarium from start to finish. What temperature your aquarium should be,how many fish you can have for the size of your aquarium you have. Tells how to clean your aquarium and how often. Talks about different types of filtration systems is best suited for your aquarium and so much more. I highly recommend this to any one that is a beginner on wanting to get started on setting up your own Cichlid aquarium.
This book is full of useful information and I would have given it five stars had it not been for the atrocious use of the English language. It is obvious English is not the writer's native tongue. I would not disregard this book on the basis of poor editing and it is well worth the few dollars that you pay for it.
I think this book gives good information! However, in order to complete the requirements the writer has set out for us readers, we would need to be absolutely perfect and spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on testing supplies, different tanks (hospital tank, breeding tanks, quarantine tanks, ect. ), medicines, filter media, and spend 80% of our daily lives monitoring and performing maintenance on our tanks. Again, great information but this book needs to be simplified for beginners. if I was a beginner I would be very overwhelmed and would probably end up not getting any fish.
I do have one question we just started and have a jewel cichlids and we went out the eggs were gone still no sign of them is been about five days they are still protecting something over there any one with suggestions please feel free, this book helped allot and made me feel good knowing what we are doing is right and good for them.... thanks
This book give enough information for new persons on cichlids including infections and other potential problems or concerns easy to understand including the solutions. I really recommend this book for anyone who wants to succesfully establish a cichlids aquarium.
The book has good usable information but the organization, writing style and grammar mistakes really detract. An editor would have helped clean these things up. It reads like a first draft
Could have found much of the info online. Pictures. Particularly of varieties would have been interesting. Fairly short read (could be good or bad thing)
