Nothing rivals the color and appeal of a saltwater aquarium. The Complete Encyclopedia of the Saltwater Aquarium simplifies the complexities of setting-up and maintaining a successful saltwater aquarium.

The book illustrates and explains:

  • Specific characteristics of invertebrates and marine fish
  • Important differences between tropical and freshwater fish
  • Choosing a tank: advantages and disadvantages of glass and acrylic, different shapes, and critical construction details
  • Accessories such as aquarium heaters, lights, and filters
  • Water testing and maintaining the correct chemical balance

More than half of the book is a directory that covers species from 34 fish families. Details include their characteristics, natural environment, diet and feeding, size range, and aquarium behavior.

Coldwater aquariums are covered in a separate section that shows how to establish an artificial habitat for fish requiring temperate saltwater.

This full-color reference will appeal to saltwater tropical fish enthusiasts at any level.
