  I too looked for their website after reading this post, but I was also
unable to find one. Pisces Publishers Co. Ltd. is the Japanese equivalent of
TFH Publication. Most pet and aquarium stores sell at least a few
publications by Pisces. I myself managed to pick up a few when I was in
Japan. Mostly I have their plant and fish catalogs, but my favorite is the
'Picture Book of Aquarium Layout & Water-Plants' ISBN: 4-938780-16-X C3676.
This 360 page book is filled with many different biotopes, layouts, ideas,
pictures, plant species, and shop advertisements. Great book.

  I did see that Amazon at one time turned up one of Pisces catalogs when I
was searching for aquarium books. Amazon wanted close to $100 for a catalog
that is only around $40 in Japan. No thanks. If you do find any decent
prices on their publications all of us here might want to know about it. I
can't recommend the Layout book I mentioned above enough. I bought it for
38,000 yen, or $35. Even if you find it for $50 it might be a nice book to
pick up.
