The Bible for any beginners

This is a no frills book that explains all essentials aspects of setting up and maintaining a saltwater aquarium. I've read many books before starting up and this one is by far the smartest comprehensive one. I've actually bought it for 2 friends.

THE BEST Beginner's Book

Do not even think about setting up a new saltwater tank without Mike Paletta's book. If you have already done it and are having problems, it will let you know how to start over.
