    A book I picked up when I started researching corals is a book called "corals a quick reference guide" written by julian sprung. It shows pics, tells you what to feed them, lighting requirements and placement. Brand new they are a little pricey but I got mine used from barnes and nobles and its in perfect condition. Julian sprung has an invertebrates quick reference guide too.
