Reef Invertebrates


Reef Invertebrates 
 An Essential Guide to Selection, Care and Compatibility
by Anthony Calfo & Robert Fenner
A healthy reef aquarium hosts much more than just corals and fish. This book explores the broad variety of invertebrate organisms that reef aquarists often keep. The frequently encountered incidental acquisitions, “hitch hikers” on live rock and corals, and from live sand, are also addressed. Reserving coverage of corals and anemones for a separate volume, this book includes:- 
• Crustaceans: crabs, shrimps, lobsters, zooplankton 
• Giant Clams: Tridacna and Hippopus 
• Other Mollusks: oysters, scallops, snails, nudibranchs 
• Echinoderms: starfish, sand dollars, urchins, cucumbers 
• Worms: featherdusters, fanworms, bristleworms, flatworms 
• Sponges, sea squirts and tunicates 
• Algaes, refugiums, live rock and sand. 
Complete coverage of individual selection, system planning and long term care of these organisms is combined with taxonomic information and practical advice. Each section is packed with helpful tips for the successful husbandry of invertebrates appropriate for captive marine aquaria.
