    Hey folks, just wanted to pass along a book I found. I've read through a couple chapters and found it easy to read. A few parts were a little dry, but overall a good read. Best part was only $5 for the first book.

    The (New) Marine Aquarium Reference Volume I: The Chemical Environment is the first of a five volume set of ebooks based on The Marine Aquarium Reference:Systems and Invertebrates by Martin A. Moe, Jr.This first volume covers over 92 topics dealing with the chemistry of natural seawater and the management of captive seawater in marine aquariums. Less
    The book that helped launch 1000 marine aquariums (and many more) is coming back greatly expanded in five ebook volumes. Martin A. Moe, Jr. is releasing The (New) Marine Aquarium Reference Volume I: The Chemical Environment in May of 2014. The original Marine Aquarium Reference: Systems and Invertebrates was first published in 1989 and sold over 80,000 copies. It has been out of print since about 2000, but used copies are still available and sought after. This first ebook volume, The Chemical Environment, is the first chapter of the original book and has been expanded with an additional 180 pages on the chemical environments of the sea and captive marine mesocosms. Volume I contains 92 topics, each is an easy to find chapter in the ebook format.

    The chapters include the Marine Environment, An Aquarist's Perspective, Water, Composition of Natural Seawater, Composition of Captive Seawater, Salinity, Methods of Salinity Determination, Specific Gravity, including conversion factors, Titration, Conductivity, Refractive Index, Salinity Levels in Marine Systems, Distribution of the Elements in the Sea, The Elements, Major, Minor, Trace, and Ultra Trace, Avogadro’s Number, Natural Sea Water, Artificial Sea Water, Trace Elements, The Role of the Elements, 49 Elements of Interest to Marine Aquarists, 11 Methods for Maintenance of Calcium and Alkalinity, Alkalinity Replacement (Sodium Bicarbonate/ Sodium Carbonate Addition), pH, Dissolved Gasses, Dissolved Organics and Nutrients, Redox Potential, and References.

    I actually just got my much delayed new copy. This was the book that taught me everything I knew back in the late 80's. I still have my old, well worn copy. I can't thank Martin Moe enough for all the great advice - the mistakes have been mine alone.

    I can't wait to read this new version, it looks great.

    If and when you get the digital, can you do a quick comparison? If prefer analog copy if there aren't major changes.

    I'll take a look at the digital copy when I get the chance. I ordered analog as soon as I saw the announcement. Some books are worth the printing cost :)

    I didn't realize that they did print up the revision. I'll be getting a copy. Thanks.

    I enjoyed this book as well and still have it. Anyone hear Martin Moe at MACNA last year? That was a cool talk on breeding and I enjoyed his DIY.
