The Simple Guide to Marine Aquariums



The Simple Guide to Marine Aquariums 
by Jeffrey Lutz
The fundamental beliefs about keeping marine aquariums have changed. Once thought to be far too difficult for mere mortals, a successful marine aquarium is now well within the grasp of any interested hobbyist. One of the biggest reasons for the increased emphasis on saltwater fishes and invertebrates in the aquarium hobby is that technological advances in aquarium equipment, coupled with advances in knowledge about marine biology, have made the keeping of marine animals of all types easier than it has ever been before. 

This book clarifies the most important technical aspects of setting up and maintaining a marine fish-only or mini-reef aquarium in clear and straightforward language and is an excellent guide for beginners.
