Booklist Review

Dawes provides solutions to 450 problems that water gardeners could experience in creating and maintaining a pond. The first section of this instructive book covers the main types of ponds and their characteristics. Another section gives facts and tips on buying fish and on their breeding, feeding, and care. There are profiles of a large number of fish, giving information on size, habitat, temperature requirements, diet, and breeding habits. Yet another section gives data on plants, and reproduction, propagation, and health and diseases are discussed. Sixty-six plants are profiled. A section on pond wildlife provides an overview of the main groups of animals that are generally encountered--frogs, toads, turtles, etc. Dawes also offers tips on managing water quality and on season-by-season maintenance. --George Cohen
