I bred and raised all types of tropicals prior to 1975. I've bred and raised many tropical fish for over 50 years - 52 to be exact. Ed Brandt**************************************
My copy of Scheels's Rivulins of the Old World has been part of my fish library since 1968 and it is a little worn like the owner from use and age.
Speaking for myself, the point of having a library that includes some books many well informed tropical fish breeders regard as "classics", enhances the richness of and the enjoyment of the hobby. Some of us are breeders, some of are readers and many of us are both and "see the point."
I've been breeding fish for 44 years, to be exact, the fish and most people don't care. They care more about what one has contributed to the hobby.
Writing a book people still care about some 39 years later is a significant contribution.
