I am not new to aquariums, but I am new to the saltwater/ reef aquarium hobby. Like many others, I have read several books on the topic over the past few months. But I have referred to none of the others as often and as successfully as to this one. Laurren Schmoyer writes simply, clearly and concisely. He explains the reasons behind everything that you need to do and gives you step by step instructions on how to do it. He explains the various options and choices that are out there for things like filtration, lighting, protein skimmers, etc. He gives photos and descriptions of the corals that would make good choices for beginners, and also the invertebrates and fish that will be compatible with them and with each other. His checklists are extremely valuable for a beginner.Because of this book I have been able to go into aquarium stores and ask intelligent questions and have some confidence that I know what I am talking about. Since it's an electronic book it's in my pocket all the time, and I often pull it out when I am in stores. I have learned another trick too. If you want more detail on a topic, try googling "Laurren Schmoyer" AND "whatever that other aquarium topic is." He's written lots of articles on the internet which have also been very helpful, and which have led me in my quest for the right vendors that I want to use.The other books I read probably would not have convinced me that I actually could build a reef aquarium and be successful. This book did because it is simple and straightforward and not overwhelming. As proof, I now have a flourishing 29 gallon fish and live rock aquarium with one soft coral that was given to me as a gift. Fish, invertebrates and coral are all doing great! This is my practice tank--the future quarantine tank. The reel reef will be 175 gallons and will take a few months to build. I plan to come back and share my thoughts again when that aquarium is built and stabilized!

The information in this book is very good. A thorough discussion of common reef animals--their behavior and requirements--is especially useful to beginners. The book's major downfall is the extremely low-quality grayscale photos that are used. Frustratingly, the book references these images as if they were in color saying things like, "note the blue and red stripes" or "the pump is outlined in lime green." If you do read this book, have a computer nearby so you can Google images of each animal as you go along. The book is also riddled with poor grammar and typos, adding to an already amateurish feel that is incongruent with the $20 price tag. These criticisms aside, I do not regret my purchase, because the information is quality, and this will be a valuable reference for me in the near future as I build my first reef tank. In summary, then, the content is excellent, the presentation is poor, the overall value is fair.

Potentially a good beginners read, but a bit sparse in information otherwise. It does a decent job of walking you through the process of building your first reef tank, but i was hoping for more in depth information

Background: I've done a little research online and read a few other books and I'm in the process of starting a saltwater aquarium.I thought the pictures the information in this book were excellent. The reason I gave it four stars was because it could have contained a compatibility chart that I could quickly reference what fish could go co-exist and what fish would work with what corals. Although the book has this information, it is contained over a large area of text.The information contained in the book seemed to be accurate (with my little to no experience with saltwater aquariums), but a reference chart would have been helpful as well. A chart that contained important values that I could briefly look at - like PH levels, salinity, etc.These are only minor complaints. I felt this book was very useful for its price.

This book gets 1 star. It's very repetitive and has black and white pages and pictures but describes what's the colors and what to look for as if it was in color. How do you explain the true colors of fish or corals in a black and white pictures. The only color is the front cover and the back cover.

This book clearly explains how to set up and maintain a reef tank. It provides a great deal of essential information which is extremely helpful to new hobbyists as well as useful reminders for the veteran reef keeper. The information seems up-to-date and well structured. There are a lot of fish and corals available and the author shares his experience by listing quite a few that are hardy and safe for a reef tank. I highly recommend this book.

I gave this book a 5 star rating because it covered everything you need to know to setup a reef aquarium.The information is presented in steps that are informative but easy enough for a beginner to follow.I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the reef aquarium hobby.

Good basic book on reef aquariums. I was hoping to find a book with the newest techniques in reef tank science, but it really doesn't go there, but instead focuses on the basics. Honestly, my ten year old reef tank books say the same things. I don't understand why some of the review say the book's pictures are in black and white, mine are all color and my book is digital.
