The sections on individual species of Clownfishes and Anemones were very helpful, including some great pictures of anemones both in tanks and in the wild. Ratings of difficulty in each phase of the breeding process are included for selected species.
"Articles" in boxes outside the text provide simple, step-by-step procedures for doing just about everything: culturing algae, culturing rotifers, setting up various tanks (brood stock, larval, growout, etc.), preparing your own foods, tricks of the trade for handling various little chores, hints on how to sell the fish you raise, and ways of doing it all with a minimum of fuss and cost.
While the main purpose of this book was not to tell someone how to setup a tank or teach about basic saltwater aquarium keeping, I found several explanations in the book to be easier to understand than those found in books by Tullock, Delbeek and Sprung, and Moe.
It is probably superfluous at this point, but I highly recommend this book - to anyone interested in breeding marine fish in particular, and to salt water hobbyists in general.
Next, there is a list featuring detailed information on each of the host anemones. Anemone care & physiology are also covered. I found the chapter on species selection very helpful. Each of the different species is described in detail.
There is also great information on choosing companion fish. General care of fish including aquarium setup, feeding, keeping your fish healthy & treating diseases is next. A section on breeding clownfish is invaluable.
Clownfish reproduction & spawning as well as care & feeding of the eggs, larva & young fish are thoroughly covered. With its expert information this book would make a wonderful addition to any marine aquarist's library.
