Review by: Jim E. Quarles
Title: Handbook of Fish
Author Dieter Untergasser.
Publisher. T.F.H. # ts-123
This books is 160 pages packed full of must know information for anyone
who has the desire to be informed about this important subject.
Dieter Untergasser has written other books about fish disease, I note the
one entitled Discus Health. But this book proves to be much more
informative with far greater detail than Discus Health. (which I
personally feel falls far short of it's title).
The table of Contents is very detailed and explains what the reader can
expect from each well developed chapter.
The book has a listing of flow charts that can guide you right to the
exact cause of a tropical fish disease problem. In fact these flow charts
is what makes this such a great addition to any hobbyist's book
As each topic is covered, a wide array of actual photographs show what
the disease or parasite looks like. This book offers a wealth of
photographic information that will help anyone develop skills using a
The book also gives details about how to use your 35 mm camera when
fastened to the microscope. This allows you to take clear color or B&
W photos to be studied later for identification.
I think this is a must have addition to any fish hobbyist collection.
It is clear, it is detailed and easy to read.
