Although very easy to read and understand, the book is very basic in every aspect. It has some nice pictures, and the fish description section is very good.

This book doesn't talk about calcium aditions to the home reef, which is an escencial aspect of reef keeping.

Also it gives little information on lighting, and the different kinds of lights. Lighting is also escencial and it surprises me how the book doesn't have much information about it.

Also it talks about some types of filters that can be use, which are really not important or good for the reef aquarium.

I would suggest more complete readings by J.Sprung

Good as a starter book maybe, but a little too sparse on some critical info necessary when considering this hobby. In fact, I'd really only give it 2.5 stars.

I would have to say that this book is out dated and the info it does offer is very basic. would be ok for someone with just a passing interest in the hobby. But if you plan to set up a full reef I would look else were

The title description of this book is way off. Please note - this is not the book you need if you really want to setup and maintain a marine aquarium. It is very basic and is worth looking at if you want to get a general idea about a maine aquarium. With that said, I really do like this little book. It is easy to find stuff in and does have a lot of useful information. Lots of good pictures and lots of good ideas, but really isn't all that you need to get going.
