Their new book, The Most Beautiful Aquariums in the World, continues their movement away from technical material of interest to experienced aquarists and toward a wider international audience spectrum, this time aimed at those who would use aquaria as design features in their dwelling or working spaces. The volume’s international approach is evident in its first few sections, presented in English, French and (I think) Norwegian. The Most Beautiful Aquariums in the World is not an aquarium book. It is a book about the use of aquariums as decorative elements and focal points in room furnishings.

Older book with still great photos. In multiple languages, and has good tips on all types of aquariums. May inspire me to move from freshwater to saltwater.

I love this book. It's got better photos on better paper than the book "The Inspired Aquarium: Ideas and Instruction for Living with Aquariums" and I had thought that was the best until now.
  • Lbe
no so good pictures, and the comments are basic, something that every aquarist know. And trust me, these are not the most beautiful aquariums in the world, not ugly but not really good.

Let me preface my review by stating that I am not trying to be mean or harsh, just honest and objective.

The title of this book places itself on a rather high pedestal, (plot spoiler alert) I'm about to knock it off that pedestal and attempt to put it in its place.

I found the book extremely disappointing! The content and presentation are lacking.

The content. Yes there are some nice aquariums in this book. Certainly not the "most beautiful in the world" so don't expect that. However, the biggest problem I had with this book was the presentation, specifically the photography.

This book, in my opinion should be visually stunning, captivating even. It is not, so again, don't expect that. Good photography would have allowed the reader to be drawn into studying each minute detail of the subject matter as if it were fine art. Truly amazing aquariums exceed fine art in my opinion, but that is not the point of this review.

Instead, indulge me for a moment, the photography and feel of the book has the incongruity one might feel or experience when viewing an ad for a steak house in any given in flight magazine. You know that quasi subconscious conundrum that your brain can't process as to why this purportedly world class steak house is using a remarkably horrible photograph to promote their establishment. That is how I would describe the essence of this book.

I had high hopes for this book and was excited about acquiring it to add to my collection. I was hoping it would be a book to savor. A book to go back to time and time again, to be inspired by. It is not any of these. Instead when I do open this book I'm baffled by it. I'm astounded by the utterly mediocre and rather amateur photography. I can hardly comprehend how the photography was approved and it (the book) got published. I'm guessing it is self published.

In a nut shell, there is no eye candy, no stunning photographs that inspire awe, no truly amazing aquariums, and no informative captions that give the reader the slightest buzz from having gained a modicum of knowledge or insight to the subject matter.

The title of this book should read "The most mediocre photographs of some nice aquariums of the world".

I would personally like to have my money back. This book is an embarrassment. If you were to pay a dollar for this book in a thrift shop it then might be a good deal. I'm giving it one star only because I have to in order to submit a review. If there were dog turd icons available instead of stars I would give it five.

I have loaned the book out(with a strong caution of its mediocrity)and don't care if I get it back.

This book is not a technical aquarium book! (it actually says that in the book's introduction) It doesn't even try, so don't buy it if you're looking for information on how to set-up an aquarium or raise tropical fish. It IS a book about aquariums that are incorporated into beautiful interior designs. If you are looking for some inspirational ideas for using an aquarium as a dynamic and significant piece of decor this is a great book.
