Here’s your missing aquarium owner’s handbook: A guide from the beginning of aquarium keeping to that of an up-to-date review of aquarium filtration processes. Whether a beginner or expert, this must-have reference work is for both freshwater and marine aquarium owners. It is filled with a considerable amount of what has been learned over the past numerous decades about aquarium filtration processes (i.e., mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration). Then it applies its relevant advancements and thought processes to help promote a “balanced” filtration approach that can be applicable to many different styles of closed systems. And as to the word Camelot, it brings to mind a mythical place of perfection. It’s the reason why it was placed in the title of this book as aquariums can at times appear to contain the perfect environment. Nevertheless, aquarium environments tend to change as they age, sometimes not for the better! Therefore, fully understanding aquarium filtration and tying its processes together in a “balanced” approach can result in Camelot-like environments! A win-win situation for both aquarium inhabitants and their owners!

This is one of ten eBooks on the commercial production of ornamental fish. It is based predominantly on the author's 30 years of experience, mostly on his own farms. While a few of the eBooks are purely commercial, others, particularly those on breeding, will also be helpful to hobbyists, understandable even by beginners. The following description is provided as a guide. All about pathogenic disease, with some golden rules on health management on fish farms, and descriptions and illustrations of the causative organisms of many common diseases, with treatments. Includes identifying signs and symptoms, and common causes of ill health and disease in fish. Predominantly commercially oriented, but potentially of interest to serious hobbyists.

This non-fiction, family history narrative should appeal to a general audience. Story begins with the emigration of my eight great-grandparents from northern Europe and ends with my parents during World War II. It intertwines highlights from each character's life story against a historical backdrop--immigration in general, homesteading in Nebraska, oil drilling in 1915 Burma, the 1946 shipping of "war brides" to America, etc. In describing the lives of my ancestors, I bring up sociological and public health topics--maternal mortality, pre-marital sex, tuberculosis, alcoholism, sibling rivalry, dating in the 1920s, problems of stepmothers, etc. I have used family members to illustrate the human condition and produce a riveting story. I believe it will inspire, educate, and entertain.

Nikolaas Tinbergen has devoted a lifetime of research to exploring the behavior of many types of animals in their natural environments, and has founded centers of worldwide renown for research and teaching in the behavioral sciences, first in his native Holland and later at Oxford. His influence extends far beyond the borders of Europe and zoology proper, and he has contributed substantially to international and interdisciplinary collaboration. He has tirelessly worked for the use of scientific methods in the study of human behavior, both normal and abnormal. Volume I is devoted to field studies. Volume II includes accounts of Tinbergenâe(tm)s remarkable laboratory experiments as well as his significant general papers. These selections explore the search for animal roots of human behavior, behavior and natural selection, appeasement signals, and the nature of ethology. âeoeEarly Childhood Autism,âe written by Professor Tinbergen and his wife, is among the most important papers. It is a pioneer work in applied ethology and is a product of thirty years of observing non-verbal expression in both animals and children. Also included is Professor Tinbergen's 1972 Croonian Lecture, âeoeFunctional Ethology and the Human Sciences.âe These classic original studies will fascinate the increasing number of readers interested in the topical problems of animal and human behavior.
