More Description

For those who believe that a guppy is a livebearer while a goldfish is an egglayer, this authoritative text will set you straight. It seems straightforward: livebearers produce live young, while egglayers lay eggs -- right? Wrong. Unfortunately, it isn't that simple. Learn about the degrees of livebearing and classification of the species. Study the diversity of fishes' features, and the deceptive art of sex determination. Aquarium layouts most suitable for different livebearing fishes are discussed, along with examples of compatible tankmates. Health care subjects like fin rot, belly sliders, humpbacks, and other diseases will help keep your fish in top shape. Practical information, accompanied by a breakdown of livebearing fishes by family, subfamily, supertribe, tribe, and genus, makes this a truly comprehensive reference source.
