This title covers all important species of apple snails of the world. It gives taxonomic information, help in distinguishing the species, general apple snail biology, snails in their natural habitat and in the aquarium. It is written by real experts and rectifies many scientific errors that are only too common in fish books that also cover freshwater snails. The text and the photos are both very good and the print quality of this book (especially the photos) is excellent. It is a real must for aquarists who see in apple snails more than a tank cleaning device. I really did not expect that much when I bought this book!
Overall the book was quite good, however I do not know why they call it Apple Snails "IN THE AQUARIUM" Only one small chapter in the book is dedicated to that. If you are looking for a good book about Apple Snails this is it. However if you are looking for a book about keeping pet apple snails the info is very limited! You can find that information for free on the web.
