The New Encyclopedia of the Saltwater Aquarium

The New Encyclopedia of the Saltwater Aquarium is a comprehensive guide of over 150 species of reef fish, invertebrates and algae; a great book for starting your first saltwater aquarium at home.

The beginner starting with saltwater aquariums will find this richly illustrated reference manual practical and informative, especially on the latest technologies available as well as their pros and cons.

The natural history of the most popular saltwater aquarium inhabitants, their basic biology, chemistry and behavior in the sea are all well described in simple details that make it clear how to architect your very own aquatic micro-universe as a novice.

The population distribution of certain species in the wild, their sizes, diets and how compatible any given species will be to the conditions of your aquarium are all included.

Simple procedures, such as temperature, tank decoration, lighting, filters, sumps, isolation tanks, feeding and general health care are all dealt with in precise language that fully inspires you to go beyond the book itself, inspiring the desire to research an even more academic bibliography.

Taking your minds eye out to sea, 20,000 leagues under the ocean, this project can be done from the comfort of your own home with a saltwater aquarium that you design on your own; while your understanding of this vast and as of yet still not fully explored world expands 100 fold after each new addition to your tank.

This 304-page hardcover published by Firefly Books in February of 2007 measures 11 x 8.6 x 1.1 inches and ships at 3 pounds, written by Greg Jennings (consulting editor of 500 Freshwater Aquarium Fish with over forty years of aquarium experience).

The New Encyclopedia of the Saltwater Aquarium was designed to make your dreams of lost and ancient civilizations below the deep blue sea come to life, in the comfort of your own home, by doing it yourself for the first time; and Marine Aquarium building correctly.
