I've had both saltwater and freshwater aquariums before, but had to give them up when I moved. Now I'm ready to try again and want to go with a nice saltwater (marine) aquarium. I wish I had this information before I did my last marine aquarium; it would have saved a lot of dead fish and frustration. Saltwater can be a real trick, but for me personally I find it the most rewarding. The author goes over the numerous setups you can get, including (and important) where in the house to put it, as well as fish that would be a good choice for you. As I found out the hard way before, not all fish are compatible with each other, and you can't always trust the salesperson at the fish store to know. He also explains the different kinds of tanks, like fish only, fish only with live rock and reef tanks. I always thought reef tanks were only for the professinals, but that is what I may try now after reading this. If you want a book that is a real wealth of information, then get this one BEFORE you go to the fish store to buy anything. It could save you a lot of time an money (and frustration) in the long run. For the small price it costs I would highly recommend it.
As someone that has always admired marine aquariums I recently found myself in the market for one.Before starting, I read this guide and it quickly enabled me to get up to speed and intelligently plan my new aquarium.I have read a few books on marine aquariums and while a few of them have the sheer volume of info, this one cuts through all of the fluff to deliver the best info for beginners to understand what is involved in setting up an aquarium and quickly help them avoid the most costly and common mistakes that beginners make.It might sound simple but topics like where not to put your aquarium (while obvious for pros, is invaluable for us newbies).Aquarium book authors tend to be a bit verbose on this subject to impress the reader with their knowledge, rather than to help beginners avoid mistakes. This book is the exception to this rule.If you buy this book it will help you improve your probability of success.It is definitely worth every cent and this book has already saved me a lot more than the list price just from the useful advice it gives.I also found out that some of the fish I was planning to put into the aquarium were not compatible. If I had gone ahead as originally planned I would have found myself at a considerable loss. Just as well I read this book as the guy at the fish store didn't know that they weren't compatible at all.This book is mostly aimed at beginners but would be a decent reference for those with a bit more experience under their belts as well.
Having had freshwater aquaria in the past (at one time I had eight), I've been toying with the idea of going marine. Anyone trying to make this same decision will be well served with this book. It can give a beginner the confidence needed to get started, plus later serve as a handy reference for all phases of care and maintenance.It's obvious that years of personal, hands-on experience with saltwater aquaria is behind this book. The info is first-rate. And great photos! Just looking at them will make you want to go out and buy a tank--but wait--you need to get all the facts by reading this book first. It contains far more than the low price would indicate.
I have been looking at converting to a marine tank and this book is an awesome reference guide. It walks you through different filters, skimmers, heaters, and other equipment along with having a nice fish reference (what fish types work well with each other)and reef/rock/sand information. I downloaded it to my Kindle app on the Xoom and I was done reading it in a couple days. It is a short guide that gets to the point and gives up to date information as I believe it was published late 2011. If you are looking for a guide and a starting point, this book will assist you for sure.
I can't have pets in my home and I yearn for companionship, so a friend suggested that I get this book.Honestly, I never thought of fish as a way to reduce my stress. Now, not only have I considered it, but I feel like I have a good start at understanding of the questions to ask and steps to take to make sure I set up my tank to make sure my fish live a long and healthy life.This book gives me the confidence and direction to feel like I can start an aquarium and have it be successful.
I've been curious for a long time about setting up an aquarium, then I read this book. Wow! There's so much information here. The author doesn't just tell you how to set up the aquarium itself, but also describes different kinds of fish and what they eat and how often you need to feed them. He provides handy lists of what to buy, and directions for the three basic types of saltwater aquariums, and discusses how to decide where to place your aquarium in your home. He talks about the quality of the water you use, how to maintain the tank, and explains the equipment. He goes over a great many other subjects as well, including lists and tips and forms you can fill out to identify what you want to buy and what it might cost.This book is written in an easy-to-read style. The topics are organized in a logical manner that makes it simple to follow along. It contains an amazing amount of information. I highly recommend it if you are thinking of setting up a saltwater aquarium.
