OK, so it is not a new book (pub 1994) but it is still the best book I have and I love it! So much so, that I had lent it out a few years ago (and never got it back...vol. 1 and 2 >) and I went and rebought it again! at the meager fee of $70 It is like a textbook in size and detail! Chapters are as follows.. The Reef In Nature Nutrient Regulation on Coral Reefs Biology of Corals Biology of Tridacnid Clams Systems for Maintaining Corals and Clams Lighting the Reef Aquarium Aquascaping Water Quality Parameters Control of Nutrients and Undesirable Algae in Closed Systems Diseases, Parasites, Pests, and Commensals of Corals and Clams Collection and Transportation The ID and Care of Tridacnid Clams Stony Corals Spectacular Reef Aquariums around the World It gives great detail and several options on everything chemistry related! At just over 500 pages!!!! it is by far my favorite reference book! Info is still very relative today! Not that much has really changed! Check It Out!!!
