KEEPING LIVE CORALS has been likened to "bonsai for the Cousteau generation" and "the ultimate underwater gardening experience." Beautiful, bizarre, and among nature`s most colorful creations, living corals are now being successfully kept and grown in tens of thousands of home saltwater aquariums.

For the first time, master aquarist Eric Borneman offers an authoritative, comprehensive, and fully illustrated guide to appropriate aquarium species, including a diversity of soft corals, as well as popular and rare large-polyp and small-polyp stony corals. More than 700 world-class photographs and text reviewed by leading coral biologists and coral keepers guides the reader through the selection and husbandry of hundreds of species. Includes a foreword by the preeminent coral biologist Dr. J.E.N. Veron, author of Corals in Space & Timeand Corals of Australia and the Indo-Pacific. 464 pages, hard cover.

Aquarium Corals by Eric Bornem

This is one of the books I wish I got when I first started. I have this, along with Calfo's Book of Coral Propagation and Calfo and Fenner's Reef Invertebrates. All three are great not only for beginners, but intermediate and advanced aquarists alike.

Excellent`

If you only get 1 book on corals, this should be it. It is very informative and easy to follow, uses both common and scientific names, covers husbandry, regional info and tons more, by far the best single source of information I have regarding corals specifically.

Good book

This is the book Marine Depot recommended I buy. It's not a cheap book but it's pretty big. Needs to get to the point sooner, to much reading. Nice beautiful pictures.
