This book is the second in the series.
The third is due out sometime in January Wonderful sections on the biology of soft corals, Zoanthids, Anemones and Corallimorpharians. I was paying close attention the the sections on care and identification of soft corals. This volume seems to concentrate on soft corals as a whole as compared to the first volume which was more general on reef keeping.
The last section on Predators, Pests and The Good Guys is a must read for identification of those odd looking animals you can't quite figure out if they are friend or foe. It was written by well known author Martin A. Moe Jr. This is my all encompassing reference book for fish and reef management. I sold both of these books to beginning hobbyists for years. The tables, diagrams and information contained inside are top notch. Moe gives special attention to water chemistry with a strong section on feeding creatures.
The reef aquarium vol 1
He gives good tips on how to buy and prepare food from the supermarket. I feel all of Moe's books are great reading. It was written by Nick Dakin with the forward written by Julian Sprung. I like this book as an all around guide to the marine hobby. It has pictures of over marine fish and invertebrates. This book is a much more elaborate edition than the first one and contains more information and pictures. This my favorite book put out by Tetra that I own. This is a good reference for the beginning marine hobbyist. I enjoy the pictures this book has to offer.
They contain some of the most natural habitat pictures I have ever seen. It was written by Martin A. Moe jr. This was the first book I ever read about saltwater aquariums. It is filled with useful information and a large section on food. I highly recommend this for all hobbyist.
Natur + Tier Verlag
John B. Gratzek and Ms. Janice R. The majority of this book covers freshwater fish, however there is a section in Diseases covering marine fish.

I use this book regularly concerning the diagnosis and treatment of fish. It also gives an easy to understand explanation on the internal structures of fish. I would pay special attention to the sections dedicated to gills and the effects of poor water quality. I would highly recommend this book to every hobbyist! This is an introductory text to the aquarium hobby. It is written to cover the basics such as equipment, setup, maintenance and brief descriptions of fish species.
Well organized, but lacking in technical information. Tropical Fish was printed in by T.
The Reef Aquarium Volume 1
This book is written in black and white text with sixteen color pictures. It was written as a fish reference covering the Genus and Names of species, descriptions, and habits. Community Aquariums was printed in by T.
LTD and written by Dr. This is a nice full color book written to cover most of the species contained in a community tank. I would recommend this as a beginners book! H Publications.
This is the bible of freshwater aquarium fish. I don't have to say another thing.. It was written by Dr. Gratzek, Dr. Richard E.
thrivedentalplan.ascensiondental.com/sound.php Wolfe, Dr. Emmett B. Shotts, Jr.
Donald Dawe, and George Blasiola. This reference book is for diagnosing and curing freshwater and marine fish. This particular book only has the Disease section. Both are well organized and informative. This book has nice color pictures to illustrate disease. The book was written by Dieter Untergasser. This is by far the most informative book about fish disease I have ever read. The flow charts to diagnosis and cure is informative and easy to follow.
