Alastair Agutter is one of a select few world-wide to successfully breed Wild Discus (symphysodon) species King of the Aquarium in captivity and an authority on these tropical fish species and others, as an accomplished Best Selling Author of Specialist Books Internationally.
Alastair began keeping and breeding tropical fish as a hobbyist from the age of just 9 years back in 1967 (over 50 years ago) and has successfully bred many species. He was one of the very first Aquarists in the United Kingdom breeding cichlids from the Great Lakes (Malawi and Tanganyika) in the early and mid-nineteen-seventies.
His enthusiasm as a dedicated Aquarist continues today with a number of projects underway; including the development of new biological filtration systems (Polyatomic-ion Biological Reactors), to help improve the success survival rate for keeping thriving plants with tropical fish species. Other projects include breeding a number of endangered species including original strains of the symphysodon family and other smaller indigenous species native to South America mainly inhabiting the Great River Amazon.
Alastair also continues today designing and making his very own aquariums and equipment for his projects, and also endeavours to write more tropical fish hobbyist reference books as a freelance full-time author, in the interests of further serving the local and wider Community Internationally.

All experienced Aquarists and Commercial Breeders will tell you that 99% of all Tropical Fish deaths are related to stress and poor diet. My book Super Foods for Tropical Fish and Discus is therefore very long overdue for all Aquarists around the world.
Make your own Tropical Fish and Discus Cichlids Super Foods from these fabulous recipes, and see your healthy, happy thriving fish growing by the day!
For me writing this book has been an incredible journey, where I have learnt so much about food for my tropical fish and what's best for them.
The book came about, and the actual writing of it, was in truth down to world famous Naked Master Chef “Jamie Oliver” who was the inspiration for me, where he clearly shows after selling more than 20 million of his very many fabulous books written on Great Foods, that there is a real desire and passion for experiencing food that is a real pleasure and joy to eat, and I might also add, very healthy and good for us all, we humans that is!
Then when continuing to decide on writing the book, I also thought of the line from the fabulous film “We Bought a Zoo” where the beautiful Scarlet Johannsson asked Matt Damon “why did he buy the zoo” and to which he replied “why not” and that's how this book come into being, I thought to myself “why not” write a book on tropical fish super foods and as they say, the rest is history.
I really know you will get a really big kick out of this book as a Tropical Fish Hobbyist or Discus Lover. As it is no exaggeration when I say, once your fish begin to eat these “Super Foods” on a regular basis, you will literally see your fish growing by the day!
In the book, you will find a great number of fabulous super food recipes to try for your tropical fish and discus. I know by using any of these recipes, you will eventually have healthy, happy, thriving tropical fish, and growing to a size you could have only imagined.
The Super Foods recipes found in this book, only use fresh meats and vegetables. Perhaps the book is very timely, as we become more aware today of micro beads and other grave pollutant elements finding their way into the water table system and food chain that can harm our pets, wild life and ourselves.
So by making these super foods, at least you know for your peace of mind, what ingredients are used, and another enormous benefit to you, being the massive savings on tropical fish food. Over the months your fish will grow and grow, until eventually, your tropical fish will come into breeding condition and want to spawn, if the water and other aquarium conditions are optimal and right.
So please enjoy this book and the plethora of delights you can now feed to your Tropical Fish and Discus!

All of our journeys start with a beginning and end, yet sometimes we can pause, or stop, to see, admire, or digest an event, or moment in our lives. So often these subtle signs and events have far greater meaning and relevance.
So the reading of “The Cherry Tree Garden” is such a moment, and event in your life, and meant to be, as you continue on your journey in search of finding the answers.
“Just as a wind and breeze can change direction and be invisible to your naked eye, one knows of such a presence and existence from such an entity.” ~ Alastair R Agutter
I never knew the answer then, as a young man just before leaving the forces. But I had an opportunity to ask a spiritualist what my best job would be? Filled with ambition, I was open to suggestions be it a scientist, lawyer, doctor etc. But the answer I got was as a "Father" and looking back some thirty plus years on, I knew the answer to be right.
It may seem strange for a man to write on such a subject, sadly still in today's society few really appreciate the thoughts of man and especially when it comes to the love and well-being of their Children.
Having been blessed with 5 children and today, beginning to read and hear about my expressed views in this book, now being covered by the media and press. I know the content of this book is invaluable when it comes to common sense, love and care.
Beyond the superficial material nonsense of our society today, if we all paused and looked around at all other life forms, we would finally appreciate our life's purpose is to love and create life. Such views are not romantic whims, but a scientific fact in relation to Natural Law and Quantum Mechanics.
The biggest and most important job in our lives is being a parent. It is rewarding and after time, such an experience begins to put all other things and events into perspective.
I leave you with this Quote;
"As Parents the best we can ever do is to always love our Children. For regardless of our views they will always go their own way." ~ Alastair R Agutter

The Weebies Family Collection of books have been specially created and designed for early learning Pre-School for Children. So as to provide today that very critical early start in life through communication.
Each book has been designed in full colour and where the illustrations created by the author are developed using fractal maths and here is why!
A Child's view point in early development can relate to shapes and colours at Pre-School age. Each drawing is therefore created in fractal maths only using circles, triangles and squares. As this is a creative stage that can be comprehended at an early age and this is why Children's drawings are very exact to them where pictures they create appear to be rectangular, circular etc.
The drawings are deliberately designed, so Children can connect and become inspired by the colours and shapes, where they can become confident to draw themselves, therefore developing hand co-ordination skills.
These books are very educational and all have a pertinent meaning and so they are not just books coupled together. They are deliberately written and designed to quickly hot wire Children at an early age, to learn about the World around them. For example, being taught different types of fish, animals, foods and so much more.
The Weebies books also teach early Child development with a sense of right and wrong, developing at an early age a moral compass to care for others. Learning to look after our wild life and preserve our planet. To love and care for each other, so as to develop strong communication ties and bonds.
Children are remarkable Human Beings and have the ability from birth to learn with great enthusiasm. The small word why, so often asked is a question in pursuit for knowledge by your Child in this new found world. The 21st century with all the challenges ahead for the Human Race, needs the spirit and hope of knowledge to be found in every Child.
The Children of today, are the custodians of Earth tomorrow. Each book is educational, for a Child beginning this journey!
