This is quite simply, the best all-round book on discus I have ever read, Jim Quarles started keeping discus exclusively in 1964 and is one of the pioneers responsible for the growth in popularity of this extremely colourful fish. Writing articles for various major magazines and associations, he was always eager to share his experiences and successes. His noted work - Discus as a Hobby - published by TFH, stands out as informative, easy to understand and a must read for anyone serious about discus.
This book was proposed as the first in a series which his untimely death curtailed. In these pages you will read everything you need to know to successfully keep the unprecedented King of aquarium fish - the majestic DISCUS.
