Giant Clams in the Sea and the Aquarium by James Fatherree Information

If you’re the type of aquarist who wants to learn about how you can care for your reef life at home, then it will really help you if you just read a book or two, which will tell you everything that you need to know when it comes to the maintenance of this kind of tank. However, if you are intent on finding more about tridacnid clams and how you will properly raise them, the best choice for you is the Giant Clams in the Sea and the Aquarium by James Fatherree Pet Store. This is definitely a colorful guide, which will not only catch your full attention, but will also educate you thoroughly on the dos and don’ts of improving the state of these large invertebrates.

Physically, this product has a diameter of eight inches in length by nine inches in width. Each page is made from glossy paper, which will keep it from being destroyed when it gets wet, and this type of material will make every picture look stunning. This book contains everything you need to know, as well as those that you’re very interested to see, since this is filled with interesting graphics. It also uses simple wordings, which makes this quite a good piece that will be enjoyed by all aquarists, from beginners to experts.

Taking care of your giant clams is easy when you’ve learned everything you need to know by reading the Giant Clams in the Sea and the Aquarium by James Fatherree.

There are lots of books available that cover marine aquariums, fishes, and corals, but there hasn’t been one dedicated solely to the tridacnid clams since Daniel Knop’s Giant Clams came out in 1996 – until now. I have recently finished my book Giant Clams in the Sea and the Aquarium, which will be available in October, 2006. The book is an 8" x 9" 227-page hardback, printed on high-quality gloss paper, which includes over 300 photographs, and covers all aspects of tridacnid biology and aquarium care.

The book`s foreword was written by J. Charles Delbeek, co-author of The Reef Aquarium: Volumes 1-3, and here’s what he had to say about it: "…James Fatherree has brought together the most up-to-date literature and anecdotal information on the biology and care of tridacnid clams for the hobbyist available, along with his stunning photos. Using his distinctive, conversational and light-hearted writing style, James has written a book for every hobbyist, be they absolute beginners or seasoned veterans."
