[APD] RE: books

1# Diana Walstad's 'Ecology of the Planted Aquarium'. 
2# Kasselmann's new 'Planted Aquariums'. 
3# NW 1-3
4# Aquarium Plants, Kasselmann
5# Terry's "The Simple Guide to Planted Aquarius" (likely better than the
Barons''s Aquarium plants, or His cock books)
6#Bench Atlas are quite good in their advice and pictures.
7#, Rataj/Horemannii Aquarium Plants Their ID, Cultivation and ecology, old
but still good and did not support too many myths!!)
8# print out some of the on line articles, "the how" is easy, "the why" is
another animal altogether.

since they can find all the info on line these days and read through them
rapidly at the store.
