Exotic Aquarium Fishes
Posted 29 January 2017 - 01:49 PM
Reading this book again has taken me down memory lane. William T. Innes' accounts of collecting fish and live foods kindled a spark when I was about 10 years old.
If you get the chance, buy an old copy in the original binding and enjoy it for what it is, an out-dated but delightful celebration of aquarium fishes both exotic and native. Highlights include the hand-painted color plates and the correct pronunciations of scientific names, definitely school.

This is also the book that changed a mild interest into a lifelong hobby, first in aquariums in general and then into native fish. I remember reading and rereading the page on Elassoma in that book. It was a library book that I remembered and then purchased one of my own a couple of decades ago.
