A Good Guide for Aquarist

This book is informative. I almost got a whole bunch of LPS to put in a 95gallon tank (technically called 100 gallon) loaded with live rock along with hard corals. This book just saved me from a disastrous mistake. I ended up avoid all LPS since there is NO ROOM for them. They need to be AWAY from most hard corals. Buy this book!!!!

Loads of Information

I am always on the lookout for a great coral book and in most cases find myself disappointed – well not this time!! This book is loaded with great photos and loads of valuable information. It’s a book you will find yourself reading again and again. And each time I pick it up to reread I always find something I hadn’t noticed before. Very easy to understand also –a real plus to any library!!
