Information for Aquarium Sitters
When you go on vacation, you can give your aquarium sitter the authorâ€™s easy-to-fill-out checklist. That way, youâ€™ll be sure that your tank is properly maintained.
Here's basic information on setting up and stocking a tank, including advice on equipment the beginning hobbyist will need, plus descriptions of many appropriate fish. Titles in this growing series of pet care books are especially focused to answer the questions and meet the needs of inexperienced and soon-to-be animal owners. My Pet books combine detailed instruction and advice in a somewhat larger format than Barron's longtime popular Pet Owner's Manuals and Pet Handbooks. They also feature more than 250 color photos, eye-catching and informative sidebars, and colorfully illustrated cover flaps. The text is clearly written, and accessible both to adults and older children.
