Barron’s Complete Pet Owner’s Manuals are written mainly for prospective and inexperienced pet owners, introducing them to the details and responsibilities of pet care. This manual focuses on the care of Betas, brilliantly colored beginners’ fishes that are wonderful for brightening an aquarium tank. This book describes all the Betta varieties and advises on where to get them and how to keep them. The heavily illustrated books in this series are also helpful for older children seeking pet care information and advice. Barron’s selection of titles in this large series covers every popular dog and cat breed, bird varieties, hamsters and other small caged animals, fish varieties for aquarium hobbyists, terrarium pets, and even reptiles, amphibians, and exotics. Each title features approximately 70 color photos and advises on purchasing, housing, feeding, health care–and where applicable, grooming and training.
