    A Breath of Fresh O2 in the World of H2O! This book is really a breath of fresh air in an industry of VERY stifling books! While not a colorful book, this is well written in a descriptive and easy way that renders it far more enjoyable and informative than half the other books that have first rate photos and “appear” to contain more information. I was looking for a book that would cover everything from inception to enjoyment with starting a salt water aquarium, and this book fit the bill. It also includes many up-to-date aquarium methods that other “guides” such as the Dummy’s book don’t offer, such as creating a refugium in the place of bio balls. For those of you who might have thought you were a “Dummy” in this hobby, please decide to be an “Idiot” instead!

    Best Saltwater Guide Ever This truly is one of the best saltwater aquarium book. I have read and I currently own 6 saltwater aquarium book, and this is the best and the number of books increases daily. It goes through every thing you need to know about aquariums from plumbing to lighting to compatible fish. I love the CD rom that came with it; it was unexpected, but so happy it came with it. If you’re considering starting a saltwater aquarium this is your book. The dummies version is ok, but this is better. It gives you all kinds of recommendations on setting it up, and maintaining the system so you are not stuck with just one way. There are several ways to set up an aquarium, and several different products to use on various set ups, and this book goes through them all. I recommend purchasing this even if you have been in the aquarium business for a while; it is always nice to go back and have a reference for issues. It also tells you have to set up a quarantine tank, and care for unhealthy fish. Look no further for the right book. This one is the best other books i’ve spent $30 or more on still do not compare to this one. You will NOT regret this purchase.
