Marine Reef Aquarium Handbook

This is a serious work for people interested in marine aquarium life, in particular invertebrates. It's really suitable for experienced fishkeepers with some knowledge of the biology of marine fish and invertebrates. There are easier to understand guides for novices, for example the Mini Encyclopaedia from Dick Mills (see below). Robert Goldstein's book is also not the most informative guide to selecting fish (What Fish? from Tristan Lougher, see below, is more useful when you are choosing fish), nor is this a 'coffee table book' with lots of pretty pictures, but if you are after reliable information especially on corals and other invertebrates, and how to prevent and deal with diseases and parasites, this is a very useful book. It has been expanded and updated since the first very successful edition was released.
