Many of us saltwater enthusiasts are also freshwater aquarium keepers. If you are into freshwater and especially into rainbowfishes, then this book is one that you will definitely want to download.
Free eBook Download: Rainbowfishes: Their Care and Keeping in Captivity by Adrian R. Tappin

Book Cover: Rainbowfishes: Their Care and Keeping in Captivity

Rainbowfishes: Their Care and Keeping in Captivity by Adrian R. Tappin is a 493 page ebook that details all aspects of keeping these colorful freshwater species. The goal of this book according to the author is to be a comprehensive and illustrated guide to the extraordinary rainbowfishes found in New Guinea and australia.

The book covers all aspects of keeping these colorful freshwater fish:

  • History (3 pages)
  • Distribution and Habitat (22 pages)
  • Collection and Shipping (12 pages)
  • Keeping and Caring (38 pages)
  • Breeding and Raising (18 pages)
  • Food and Feeding (53 pages)
  • Rainbowfish Species (267 pages)
  • Disease Prevention and Control (49 pages)

It's comprehensive and is a must for any serious rainbowfish keeper. The live food section alone makes it worth the download (covers microalgae, copepods, rotifers, microworms, vinegar eels, brine shrimp, mosquito larvae, drosophila, and more).

The ebook can be downloaded from either Mediafire (53 MB file size) or from Peter Unmack's website (170 MB file size). The latter download is larger due to being more of a print-quality PDF.

I'm currently thinking about getting back into breeding rainbowfishes and I'll definitely be taking the time to read over this ebook.
