Overview


Now available in a brand-new high-quality paperback edition, this popular book instructs aquarium hobbyists in the many details that are part of setting up and maintaining a marine reef aquarium. It also advises on populating the aquarium with reef-safe fish and invertebrates. An opening section explains how to maintain correct saltwater chemistry, temperature control, filtration, and lighting in order to support a coral reef in an aquarium environment. Author Philip Hunt then discusses the use of natural rock and sand as the foundation for cultivating coral, describes uses of both chemical and natural algae filtration, and instructs on introducing invertebrates into the aquarium--particularly, the various species of coral. Vivid color photos display many different varieties of coral and fish thriving together in aquarium settings. Here in a single fact-filled and beautifully color-illustrated volume is virtually everything the hobbyist need to know about maintaining a reef aquarium. Approximately 400 color photos.
