Title: Penang Discus (revisited edition)
Author: Shaifullah Yeng
208 pages, 440 color photos
Penang Discus by Shaifullah Yeng, owner of Nura Discus, Penang Printed
in May 2001.
The first time I saw this book it was a dual version German/English and
introduced at the 3rd International Discus Championship in Duisburg Germany
(2000). The first volumes I saw were hard covered and looked very good not
only from the outside but also from the inside.
I don't own this multi language version but the newer, completely English
one which was revised in 2001 as described above.
If you think you can get a better book than this one please don't read
further, buy and read that other book. Why I am so sure about this book?
This 19 chapter book is so good, up to date and easy to read that everybody
needs a copy. This book gives information about Purchasing your Discus,
Quarantaine, Discus colors and patterns, Sexing Discus, breeding discus,
genetics, discus foods etc. etc.
All chapters are well written and have clear photographs to support the
comments of the author.
The last 9 chapters are about different strains and they are not only
having color pictures but also explain in detail all about these strains and
what to look for in good discus and what to take note of in bad discus.
This is a book every breeder and every hobbyist needs on the shelf. I am
glad I got a copy of this great book
