I just received his 3 volume reference &quot;Corals of the World&quot; and spent about 6 hours reading and reviewing. If you are a Reef Aquarium hobbiest or simply appreciate Coral classification and taxonomy this reference is an absolute must have. I have Veron's other reference &quot;Corals of Australia and Indo-Pacific and it too is remarkable in every sense. If you are a reef hobbiest and simply need an easy reference book on coral care and compatabilty this publication might not be for you. However, if your a serious reef keeper, the money spent on this reference is worth every penny. The reference primarily gives you highly acurate coral clasifaction and taxonomy. The photos are astoundingly amazing as well. I give this book marks well above 5 stars. I seriusly doubt that there will ever be another book published with this type of information. I consider my new reference set one of my most prized possesions. http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=303&cat=16 Thu, 29 Jan 2004 12:29:56 -0600 <a href="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=303&amp;cat=16"><img title="41water_chemistry.JPG" border="0" src="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/data/16/thumbs/41water_chemistry.JPG" alt="41water_chemistry.JPG" /></a><br /><br />by: mojoreef<br /><br />Description: Written by an expert on marine biology, this title is must reading for the marine aquarium hobbyist. Keeping ocean-dwelling fish and other marine life forms thriving in the synthetic environment of an aquarium requires special knowledge and care, especially in regard to water quality. The author discusses the properties of natural seawater, then gives details on how to create and maintain high-quality synthetic seawater. He describes biochemical cycles and fluctuating conditions that are normal in a flourishing marine aquarium, instructs on adding needed chemical components, and advises on water analysis test kits, instrumentation, and record keeping.

There really is nothing miniature about keeping the reef aquariums described in this book. Emmens has a stragiht forward way of explaining how to keep a reef aquarium. Although some of the methods of keeping reef aquariums have changed over the years since this book was published, it still excels with great sections on water parameters, biological and chemical filtration, and a limited guide to certain reef organisms and fish. It's to the point and it is still relevant today.

Each type of creature (usually a phylum or an order) is organized into its own chapter, which begins with a couple of pages of general facts that generally cover reproduction, feeding, and interesting characteristics. Then come the pages of very good color photos of each variation (there are over 20 different clownfishes identified... not bad!) These are labeled with their common name and their Latin name. http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=291&cat=16 Thu, 29 Jan 2004 11:33:39 -0600 <a href="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=291&amp;cat=16"><img title="41The_Reef_Set_Reef_Fish.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/data/16/thumbs/41The_Reef_Set_Reef_Fish.jpg" alt="41The_Reef_Set_Reef_Fish.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: mojoreef<br /><br />Description: If there is one set of reef identification books to own then this one is it.

Throughout the Florida, Caribbean and Bahamas areas there are no better books available. Each fish, creature, coral, grass or algae has it's own full color picture along with a line drawing that points out the defining characteristics of that particular species. With a plastic cover and the pages treated to resist water, it can be taken to the beach or onto the boat without much concern about the water damaging the book. http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=290&cat=16 Thu, 29 Jan 2004 11:22:58 -0600 <a href="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=290&amp;cat=16"><img title="41The_Modern_Coral_Reef_Aquarium_Vol_3.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/data/16/thumbs/41The_Modern_Coral_Reef_Aquarium_Vol_3.jpg" alt="41The_Modern_Coral_Reef_Aquarium_Vol_3.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: mojoreef<br /><br />Description: In this third volume of the encyclopaedia on the Modern Coral Reef Aquarium, you will find seven chapters containing a well of information not found in any other book on the subject! The book starts out with a small chapter putting the animals we keep into an evolutionary perspective. Chapter 2 contents microscopic single-celled animals that are so important for the biological balance of the aquarium. Chapter 3 takes a look at the sponges, true filter feeders among the invertebrates. Chapter 4 deals with many small invertebrate phyla - such as the sea spiders and the water bears - most of which are rarely described in other aquarium books. The huge chapter 5 covers all the phyla commonly called &quot;Marine Worms&quot;, and here you will find scientifically updated information on all sorts of marine worms as well as unique photos and comments on those species and groups frequently found in your reef aquarium. Do not miss the chance to view and learn about these interesting groups of animals! Chapter 6 tells you a lot on the Crustaceans, a group of invertebrates that have been popular among aquarists since the beginning of the marine hobby. You will find a well of new information on the most common species seen in the trade as well as presentations of more uncommon, but nevertheless highly interesting species for the reef enthusiasts. Last, but certainly not least, chapter 7 presents 43 private reef aquaria from all over the world. Here you will find interesting photos, technical descriptions as well as a lot of information on the animals inhabiting the different tanks. Buy this book and see how other aquarists have chosen to build their coral reef aquaria! http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=289&cat=16 Thu, 29 Jan 2004 11:19:20 -0600 <a href="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=289&amp;cat=16"><img title="41The_Modern_Coral_Reef_Aquarium_Vol_2_The_Modern_Coral_Reef_Aquarium_.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/data/16/thumbs/41The_Modern_Coral_Reef_Aquarium_Vol_2_The_Modern_Coral_Reef_Aquarium_.jpg" alt="41The_Modern_Coral_Reef_Aquarium_Vol_2_The_Modern_Coral_Reef_Aquarium_.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: mojoreef<br /><br />Description: by Fossa Svein A., Nilsen Alf Jacob This volume deals exclusively with the phylum Cnidaria, the group of animals that, among others, contains corals, anemones and jellyfishes. All three classes in the phylum - the Hydrozoa, Scyphozoa, and Anthozoa - are discussed in details. Ch apters on evolution and reproduction biology of the cnidarians are also included. Several scientists, all experts in their individual fields, have contributed to this volume. With their help and that of scientific and popular literature, we have tried to make the content as up to date as possible. You will therefore find, not only an extensive list of references, but also a wealth of information never before grouped together in a popular book dealing with the cnidarians. The text is focused, both on the b iology of the group, as well as on how to keep cnidarians successfully in aquaria. The book also contains more than 800 high-quality photographs showing different groups of animals in their natural habitat and illustrating details of their biology, as wel l as their growth and survival in The Modern Coral Reef Aquarium. http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=288&cat=16 Thu, 29 Jan 2004 11:16:58 -0600 <a href="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=288&amp;cat=16"><img title="41The_Reef_Aquarium_A_Comprehensive_Guide_to_the_Identification_2.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/data/16/thumbs/41The_Reef_Aquarium_A_Comprehensive_Guide_to_the_Identification_2.jpg" alt="41The_Reef_Aquarium_A_Comprehensive_Guide_to_the_Identification_2.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: mojoreef<br /><br />Description: by Julian Sprung, J.

I enjoyed reading about the set-ups, what additives were used, the salt that was used. I also liked reading about what people liked and disliked about their own tanks. But the photography is awful. I mean, this is a picture book! Some of the photos are downright out of focus. I could take better photos with a throw away camera. My driver's license has better photography. I'm shocked that a book that is a &quot;picture&quot; book has such terrible photos. A lot of time must have been spent compiling all the information about everyone's tank, but no one took the time to send a professional photographer to take pictures. I often read this book to see what someone's set up is, but I never bother to look at it for the photos, which is a real shame, because saltwater tanks are a visual feast. http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=283&cat=16 Thu, 29 Jan 2004 11:00:42 -0600 <a href="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=283&amp;cat=16"><img title="41Reef_Invertebrates_An_Essential_Guide_to_Selection_Care_and_Compatibilty.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.reeffrontiers.com/reviews/data/16/thumbs/41Reef_Invertebrates_An_Essential_Guide_to_Selection_Care_and_Compatibilty.jpg" alt="41Reef_Invertebrates_An_Essential_Guide_to_Selection_Care_and_Compatibilty.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: mojoreef<br /><br />Description: At 400 pages, this first volume of the Natural Marine Aquarium series takes a comprehensive look at the wide range of wondrous organisms both large and small for modern marine aquaria.

There are lots of great pictures. The book is an excellent resource for those who are starting a reef tank. There are thorough and informative chapters on issues such as set-up, live rock, lighting, fitration, feeding, etc. The sections on selection &amp; care of corals, other invertebrates, fishes, and algae are excellent. Issues of care, compatibility and conservation are addressed for all species. I did notice a couple of incorrect pictures, but this is a very minor problem.

Using live rock and live sand as part of a natural filtration system, the home aquarist can now create vibrant reef tanks that are biologically stable and simple to maintain. With Tullock’s suggestions, the reefkeeper can now mimic natural habitats such as a Florida Keys Lagoon, a Caribbean Turtle Grass Flat, an Indo-Pacific Deep Cave, or a Red Sea Patch Reef. With more than 200 color photographs and illustrations, Natural Reef Aquariums provides inspiration for both beginning and expert marine reef hobbyists.
