5.0 out of 5 stars A very specific book-not for beginners
A very specific book-not for beginners. Exactly! Contrary to a previous reviewer's opinion, I don't see that as a downside to the book. The book sets out to be "indispensable guidance for the Marine aquarium hobbyist", and keeping tropical marine fish is a complex procedure. A welcome addition to the science of the hobby. For glossy photos, although there are some,...

3.0 out of 5 stars A very specific book-not for beginners
If you are interested in hard and soft corals, or invertebrates, then this book is very specifically and succesfully aimed at you. The text is very informative if a little dry, but the photos are very dissapointing, and make identification of species quite tricky.
The section on fish is short and lacking any in depth guidance on compatibility either with other fish...

If you are interested in hard and soft corals, or invertebrates, then this book is very specifically and succesfully aimed at you. The text is very informative if a little dry, but the photos are very dissapointing, and make identification of species quite tricky.
The section on fish is short and lacking any in depth guidance on compatibility either with other fish or corals and inverts.
A great book for everyone except those who wish to keep fish and corals and/or invertibrates.
The index also takes some getting used to.
If it's general information you're after or you're a new marine aquarist then Palletas "New Marine Aquarium" would be a better bet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marine Biology Degree in a small book., 5 Aug 2009

G. Kirby "Especially Goldfish" (Halifax England) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Marine Reef Aquarium Handbook (Paperback)
A marine biology degree in a book. Well first year of anyway. True Robert Goldstein stuff. No quick reference book, a book to be read from cover to cover then refered back to. Can be heavy going in places, but take it easy and it all makes sense.

A must for anyone wanting to really know what is going on in their artificial enviroment, of their home reef aquarium.

Well done Doctor Robert.

I bought this as a Christmas present for my uncle who has a marine aquarium. He told me that it's a really good book to have around. He's been keeping marine for several years but he said there was quite lot of info included which he found helpful.

This review is from: Marine Reef Aquarium Handbook (Paperback)
I purchased this book because I am new to marine reefs and needed to research the topic, that said this book takes you from the very basics of fish keeping and goes on to explain the needs and various type of living corals. this book was one of the best purchases I have made and it has been used as a reference from day 1.
