Not every reader around the globe has access to reliable and affordable postal services and printed copies of AMAZONAS, and for that, we offer a digital version of AMAZONAS as well. You may have admired a copy of AMAZONAS at your local aquarium retailer, or tucked among the offerings at Barnes & Nobel, still wrapped in its protective poly sleeve, and wondered what mysteries were hidden inside.

Our print subscribers agree that the hard copy of AMAZONAS is a rich and sumptuous experience unlike any other freshwater aquarium magazine and a much-read part of their permanent aquarium home reference library.

Without further delay, welcome to the inner treasure of the September / October 2015 issue.
