    Disappointed with Dummies I bought this book and The New Marine Aquarium: Step-By-Step Setup & Stocking Guide by Michael S. Paletta in order to plan my new saltwater aquarium. The Paletta book is fantastic, up to date and is everything a beginner could want. The dummies book still pushes the undergravel filter as the best method for filtration. About a dozen websites that I checked dissagree. That’s my major problem with this book. Having read both books over the course of two nights, I was astounded by how little information you actually get from this book. No subject is given in enough detail, even for a beginner’s book. You will see my copy on ebay soon.

    Out of Date and sometimes misleading information I was very excited to start my aquarium and used this book to start, within a few weeks I found out by visiting stores that I was basically doing everything wrong. I went to buy an underwater filter and they laughed at me and told me that they haven’t sold any since the 70′s. They also fail to mention how important and easy to maintain live rock is. I didn’t even get any until a very knowledgeable sales person mentioned it. This book mentions very little about it and even less of it’s importance. Overall the book is terrible, I am shopping for something new.
