    First there was FAMA but it included very little info on reefkeeping. I only kept that subscription for one year. Then came Coral, an English version of the German Koralle. This was and still remains a SUBSTANTIAL improvement over FAMA. Coral Magazine - History I will continue with this subscription I suspect for a long time.

    Now we have another good magazine by Anthony Calfo which I expect to become the leading magazine after a year or so. He's put a lot of hard work into it. You might want to check it out. It's not cheap but Anthony's goal is to have a magazine that isn't 75% advertising yet is made of quality materials and content. More information is here.

    I also must say Coral Magazine is one of my favorite subscriptions.

    Nope. I don't have the first issue yet as it is now just shipping. However, I had discussions with some people quote "in-the-know" who've been quite impressed.

    Basically, the goal is to have enough subscribers to continue to print this magazine on high quality paper vs cheap paper and to prevent a bunch of advertisements at the expense of quality articles. As a result, it's a little more expensive.

    Here's Anthony's words:

    The one thing i hate about this hobby is the cost, $45.00 for four issues. I though Coral magazine was pricey, ouch!!!
