    Author Information
    The author Inspired and encouraged by his parents, both accomplished marine biologists, Peter Hiscock began keeping fish and aquariums as a child. He was appointed manager of a retail aquatics outlet at just 17 years of age and went on to complete aquatic studies at Sparsholt College in Hampshire, UK. He entered publishing with contributions to the aquatic press. His main interests include fish behaviour and the interaction of fish with their environment, as well as aquascaping and the natural habitats of aquarium species.
    Back cover copy
    A fascinating world tour of natural biotopes and how to recreate them in the aquarium. Using clear text, location views and photographs of the ingredients and the finished results, the book explains how to put together aquarium displays that reflect twelve different natural environments, ranging from a mountain stream to a mangrove swamp. Each chapter also presents a selection of fishes suitable for that aquarium. The book provides practical guidance on all aspects of aquascaping, from choosing substrates, rocks and wood to selecting and positioning aquarium plants.
