A real inspiration for me to keep marine fish.
on 5 February 2002
This book is excellent for anyone considering moving from keeping tropical fish to keeping marine fish. Keeping marine fish is always considered tricky, due to its subtle blend of black art and science. This book covers both the science and the black art admirably and also covers the grail for fish keepers "the reef system". The book is broken down into three sections, the first covers the kit required to keep marine fish/reef systems. The second section gives a description of the marine fish themselves. Giving hints on which fish will tolerate each other and whether they will live in a reef environment without eating the reef/inverts/tank mates. The third section covers the inverts. All in all an excellent book which has definitely encouraged me to have a go at keeping marine fish.
