Excellent!

Comments: I had the original and read it many times, but one thing that always troubled me was that there was descriptions of interesting designs and ideas, but never any pictures to go along with it. This book rectified that. I enjoyed reading it again, even if some stuff is a bit dated at this point.

Terrific book Product Review by FRANK JOHNS (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I was not expecting the depth to which this book takes you into all facets of Coral husbandry. It was interesting to read about how to create a business around Coral farming, although there is a ton of helpful information which will help the aquarist propagate his/her corals in the reef tank. Very satisfied! I recommend this book to anyone interested is keeping all types of Coral.
