The all-new second edition of the BSAVA Manual of Ornamental Fish makes a timely and welcome appearance as the number of clients keeping freshwater and marine aquaria increases. It is an area where particular expertise is valued and of great importance not only to clients who keep fish as a hobby, but also to aquatic traders and those involved in public aquaria. Part I presents an overview of the aquatic environment, commercial farming and trade in ornamental fish, together with the important aspects of filtration and husbandry in garden ponds and aquaria, with the help of specially commissioned illustrations. Part II looks at the individual fish patient, detailing the approach to clinical examination and disease investigation, including anaesthesia and diagnostic imaging. Diseases are described from both a systematic and an aetiological viewpoint to give maximum assistance to the reader. Full-colour photographs illustrate the clinical features of diseases in a number of species and give an appreciation of the variety of infectious and parasitic organisms encountered. Part V then presents a practical approach to treating ornamental fish, including common surgical procedures. Throughout the book, at-a-glance tables provide important information in the BSAVA's established accessible style. Written for an international audience by experts from the UK and the USA, the BSAVA Manual of Ornamental Fish, 2nd edition guides the reader through the vast subject of ornamental fish from a veterinary perspective. It is also a first-class resource for non-veterinarians with an interest in fish health.Butterflyfish, raccoon Chaetodon lunula Fighting fish, Siamese Betta splendens Carp (family) Cyprinidae Flounder (family) Bothidae Carp, black Mylopharyngodon piceus Glassfish (family) Chandidae Carp, common Cyprinus carpio Gobyanbsp;...
