Authors Editorial and Review 
"This book has been a favourite with Tropical Fish Keepers and a Best Seller now for over 28 years. The Discus Fish, King of the Aquarium is the hardest species to breed and keep in captivity. By following the routines and methods in this book, ensures any hobbyist can keep successfully any type of tropical fish, be it a community aquarium full of tropical fishes, or seeking to specially breed cichlids and other species of interest successfully. The fish food menu's inside this book I think are very unique, where folk can make up large amounts of specially prepared food that can be frozen down and used when required, creating vast savings on fish food and providing the very best for your fish, with a high protein diet and with all the essential vitamins and nutrients, for healthy thriving fish. - Alastair R Agutter.

    Bedtime Stories for Dogs

    The tales in Bedtime Stories for Dogs are written just the way dogs like things—they're short and simple, they have happy endings, they usually involve food, and they frequently refer to things that smell really awful. Each one of these stories was proofed (and woofed) by the author's two wiener dogs: "If they didn't give a story two paws up and two tails wagging, it was back to the drawing board," she says. This is the perfect treat for anyone: *Whose dog has control of the remote (and flips when watching dog food commercials) *Whose dog occasionally allows him to sleep in the bed (but only if he doesn't hog the covers!) *Who doesn't even notice the dog hairs in their food *Who carries their dog when he gets winded Anyone who has a canine companion will want this charming book. It's a bow-wow bedtime bible!
