Overview

A comprehensive guide to creating a reef environment in the home aquarium.

Designed with the beginning hobbyist in mind, this richly illustrated reference introduces the hobby of marine aquariums in a practical way. Explaining the technology and terminology clearly, Greg Jennings relates the aquarium setting to that of the natural saltwater environment and offers fascinating insights into the biology and the behavior of the most popular marine fish.

Over 150 species of reef fish, invertebrates and algae are described: their distribution in the wild, size, behavior, diet, aquarium requirements and compatibility. A large, full color photograph appears for each featured species, with personal recommendations on the fish considered best for the beginner.

The New Encyclopedia of the Saltwater Aquarium covers:

  • The natural history of saltwater fish
  • The pros and cons of the latest in equipment and technology
  • Saltwater aquarium setup and maintenance - starting out, water quality and temperature, tank decor, lighting and filters
  • Feeding, general care and health matters
  • An extensive illustrated selection of saltwater fish, invertebrates and algae.

A glossary, suggestions for further reading and a list of useful websites round out this complete reference.

Editorial Reviews

The Globe and Mail
A wonderful project book for those creating a small marine world in the home.
American Reference Books Annual 2008 - Mark A. Wilson
This extraordinary book will give anyone with the proper equipment the opportunity to enjoy his or her own beautiful marine ecosystem in an aquarium.... Illustrated with stunning color photographs and useful color diagrams... This book is attractive enough to sit on the coffee table. Although probably not a typical selection in an academic library, public libraries everywhere can make good use of it.
