(A guide to fresh water Aquarium keeping
- Gordon Rodricks)
Fresh-Water-Aquarium keeping is an absorbing hobby. It requires very little attention
(1/2 an hour a week. It appeals to young and old alike. In fact it is established the world
over that the hobby is pursued more by grown ups than children. It is soothing and relaxing,
so much so that hospital wards in several countries have Aquariums installed to help in the
recovery of the patients. In todays busy lives of the students, excecutives & businessmen a
hobby with so little to give and so much to receive from is a great boon. I have pursued this
hobby for 45 years and many of my best friends are Aquarists.
The subject is exhaustive, but I am setting out guidelines for an average homesteader to set
up & maintain an aquarium easily.
