Love these books Product Review by ANTONIO RIVERO (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I've been in SW tanks since 1987 and I wish I would have had a book like this when I started. Great info. on just about all types of inverts. Big help when you need to know how to care for an invert or which ones you can place together. I also have the Marine Fishes edition and love it. These books are great for the beginner and for the seasoned aquarist.

Great!

Comments: I have been using the marine fish handbook for about 4 years and wish I had found this one sooner... Ever wonder if that sally lightfoot crab is a nice addition to your reef tank? Stop wondering, read the facts about its suitability... Same goes for that nice new piece of coral. Good stuff, I don't go to my LFS without either of these books in tow...

Good stuff.
