Nano aquariums have become so popular that beginning aquarists are gravitating to smaller tanks as never before! With their immense popularity comes a growing appreciation for the smaller aquarium fish and invertebrates that would be lost in a typical larger community aquarium. But which species are the most ideal candidates for the modern nano aquarium? What are the special challenges and things to know about setting up and running a nano freshwater system?

The 101 Best Freshwater Nano Species is the book to answer these and many more questions. Written by Mark Denaro and Rachael O’Leary, additional contributors to the book include well-known AMAZONAS Magazine writers and photographers Hans-Georg Evers, Gary Lang, Dr. Paul Loiselle, MP & C Piednior, Mary Sweeney and Sumer Tiwari.

The book isn’t simply a “list of 101 best” anything, but in fact could be considered the perfect nano aquarium handbook, particularly for those new and intermediate hobbyists just starting to get their hands wet with nano fishes, invertebrates, and plants. Don’t go livestock shopping without it!

Of course, 101 Best Freshwater Nano Species covers more than simply fish; invertebrates and plants are discussed as well, giving a complete sampling of what goes into the typical nano aquarium that hobbyists are drawn to. “Meant as a field guide to nano-aquarium species, this guide uses color photographs taken in home aquariums for quick visual identification. Species appearing here have been selected as outstanding for their hardiness and durability in aquarium conditions, and for their attractiveness and interesting behaviors.”

The book starts of the species selections looking at fishes.
