The New Zealand Native Freshwater Aquarium



2018, New Holland Publishers Paperback 208 pages
Back blurb text:
New Zealand’s unique native freshwater fish have been too long ‘out of sight, out of mind’, but they are surprisingly charismatic, intriguing, and bursting with personality.
Difficult to observe in the wild, the fish are much more accessible and tangible in the aquarium, immediately becoming advocates for the conservation of their freshwater habitats.
Native fish are an interesting and unusual alternative to exotic aquarium species. They are easy to look after in the aquarium thanks to this comprehensive and practical guide. Stella McQueen’s enthusiasm and expertise is evident on every page.
This book:
  • Discusses the species most suited to aquaria, with a strong focus on conservation and ethical fish keeping.
  • Covers how to find, catch and look after native fish, with tips on how to identify different species.
  • Provides an understanding of the fish in their natural environment, with suggestions for creating an attractive aquarium reflecting these habitats.
  • Is for scientists, fish keepers and the generally curious alike.
