The Inspired Aquarium

The Inspired Aquarium was written to help those of us that are less creative (like me). So, if you're like me and you're not very creative when it comes to aquascaping an aquarium this book might interest you. The Inspired Aquarium could also be for those that are planning to remodel a room in their home for a large fish tank. The authors try to introduce the reader to the major topics and concepts for keeping aquariums as well as design and aquascaping ideas.

The Inspired Aquarium is loaded with excellent photographs of freshwater aquariums setups, planted tanks, saltwater aquarium setups and full blown reef tank setups. Interior Designers and hobbyists that set up aquariums for a living would probably be interested in this book too. The really neat part about this book are all the photos of not just the tanks, but the rooms they are in as well. There are some really nice houses with fish tanks out there!

Let's go over what you get with the Inspired Aquarium:

Placement and Planning Freshwater Aquariums Saltwater Aquariums The Inspired Aquarium Case Studies Hmm, what did I really think about the Inspired Aquarium? It's about 170 pages long, so it's a relatively quick read and it covers most of the topics you need to know about. However, it doesn't go into some of the topics nearly deep enough but the book does what I think it's supposed to do in this case which is to inspire. There are tons of setup photos to look at and you'd be hard pressed to come away from reading this book and not have a good idea of what you want to do with your own setup. I think this book does what it's supposed to do, so we give this book four stars. 4 stars It's definitely worth checking out, especially if you're doing some large scale aquarium projects.
