Planted Aquariums: Creation and Maintenance starts with a discussion of light, soil, and water requirements for keeping plants in aquariums. The next chapter gives the reader guidelines for choosing the right plants for their tanks. The major portion teaches how to plan for, purchase, and install plants in the aquarium. There is a detailed section that is useful for someone who just wants to put a few hardy plants into a small tank as well as for the serious hobbyist aiming to create a show tank. Sections on plant care, water quality, problem solving, and fish in planted aquariums round out the picture. A special section on Dutch and Japanese planted tanks provides a wider perspective. "Hands on" information is available for hobbyists who want their tanks to shine. Although the book is comprehensive, the beginner can learn how to create and maintain a simple tank or a more complex one.

"… this book is a highly recommended "must have" for all people interested in planted aquaria. It is not a "simplified" version of Ms. Kasselmann's previous book, so even those who already own Aquarium Plants are encouraged to consider adding this volume to their library as well. Planted Aquariums: Creation and Maintenance contains applied information that, when coupled with Aquarium Plants, provides the most comprehensive treatment of planted aquarium care available in any set of English language books to date. The chapter on tank set-up is by far the best printed material on the topic we've ever read." -- Phil Edwards and Karen Randall, The Aquatic Gardner, Volume 18 No. 4

"… a meticulous resource, accessible to both novice and experienced aquarium owners, and a "must-have" for anyone seeking to cultivate a vibrant and healthy aquarium environment. Stunning full-color photographs on every page illustrate this handy and detailed guide."--Midwest Book Review, Vol.16, No.1, January 2006

"Even if you have never given a thought to starting an aquarium, this book makes you want to rush right out to the local pet shop or aquarium shop and start one." -- Kathy Taylor de Murrillo, California Garden, Vol. 97 No. 1, January/February 2006

"For anyone new to aquariums - these pages should be mandatory reading before any attempt is made to start an aquarium. The color pictures throughout the book make this book very useful to people at every experience level. The author and publisher are to be commended for a fine job in this translation." -- Thane Johnson, Library News for Zoos and Aquariums, June 2006
