I have never been interested in keeping aquariums, I find it too messy, but I have friends who are seriously interested in it and I have understood that it can be quite addictive. When I came across this book, to say the least I was surprised because I never knew there was something called a shrimp aquarium. And what started off as a curiosity thing and taking a peep into a book was only brought to rest when the book was finished.It was very interesting to read the book and I found it quite detailed with complete information as to how a novice could set up a fresh water shrimp aquarium. There was information about researching and what to research for before taking the step, it also gave information about online websites that deal with this. That was a nice touch; it meant that a lot of researching was already done for the reader.
