    I found this book today in a secondhand book shop. I instantly remembered it from my childhood as one of the books that I had out on permanent loan from the local library...that is I just kept renewing it.

    It was published in 1970, and like it says on the front cover "With a special colour section on Aquatic Plants". I remember being excited and somewhat frustrated in equal measure by this section. On one hand it was great to see plants I only previously read about in full colour. But on the other it was way too short and the plants weren't exactly presented very well.

    Anyway, I'm really pleased I found it and got the opportunity to add it too my collection, especially since it also has several very informative paragraphs on "Aquascaping"; which I'm guessing wasn't a word you heard too much way back then...;)
