About this book

In this third volume of the encyclopaedia on The Modern Coral Reef Aquarium, you will find seven chapters containing a well of information not found in any other books on the subject.

The book starts out with a small chapter putting the animals we keep into an evolutionary perspective. Chapter 2 contents microscopic single-celled animals that are so important for the biological balance of any aquarium. Chapter 3 takes a look at the sponges, true filter feeders among the invertebrates. Chapter 4 deals with many small invertebrate phyla – such as the sea spiders and the water bears – most of which are rarely described in other aquarium books. The huge chapter 5 covers all the phyla commonly called "Marine Worms", and here you will find scientifically updated information on all sorts of marine worms as well as unique photos and comments on those species and groups frequently found in your reef aquarium. Do not miss the chance to view and learn about these interesting groups of animals! Chapter 6 tells you a lot on the Crustaceans, a group of invertebrates that have been popular among aquarists since the beginning of the marine hobby. You will find a well of new information on the most common species seen in the trade as well as presentations of more uncommon, but never the less highly interesting species for the reef enthusiasts.

Last, but certainly not least, chapter 7 presents 43 private reef aquaria from all over the world. Here you will find interesting photos, technical descriptions as well as a lot of information on the animals inhabiting the different tanks. Buy this book and see how other aquarists have chosen to build their coral reef aquaria.
