Rosario LaCorte finally has his book An Aquarists Journey out in Paperback. It is available from Amazon. He is still breeding fish and is considered one of the best in the world. I have met him several times. I ordered my copy. Charlie

I got some of his line bred Melanotaenia Boesemani Rainbows and gotta say they are very colourful and bright.

The link works for me. If you just do a search with the title and author it will come up on Amazon as the seller.

I just received this book and I cant put it down! What a great history of an interesting and humble guy! A worthwhile read for sure - in my opinion!

It turned out to be a biography of his life in the hobby. The only thing that I picked up was that in Elizabeth New Jersey. The water comes from the tap so soft and acid you can breed Neon Tetras and Cardinals in it. Also a lake and stream there is full of Daphnia and Tubifex. Makes it hard not to be a good fish breeder with the two most important items. Food and water. He tells about his 7 trips to Brazil and mentons a lot of people. Some I new personally.
