What a great book! featured

Comments One of the best I have read in a long time. Calfo really spent some time on this book. Researching corals, equipments and all aspects of keeping a marine aquarium. What I love best about this book are the pictures. Of all the books I have the pics in this one are the best. You almost want to cut it up and frame them. Very vibrant and printed on heavy duty glossy paper this book is built very well. From equipment selection to setup. From water chemistry to livestock selection he r4eally covers everything you need to know. This is a very easy read, not technical at all and if your new to the hobby or been doing it a while I suggest you pick up a copy. You will enjoy the read.

Another selection for Chris's must have books!


Liked about it The picture, They are just great. This book has the best pictures of any I have read.
Clea and concise, even at 400+ pages this book is an easy read you you wont get lost in any technical jargon.
Written by Anthony Calfo!


Didn't like There was not much I did not like about this book if I had to choose something I would have to say I would like to see more specifics on corals, specific species and their care and requirements.

Good reference book for many facets in the hobby

Comments This book provides a lot of general information about many different aspects of the hobby. There are good words on various filtration methods, lighting options, and lots of info about different genera of coral (including captive needs, methods of propagation, compatibility with other corals, etc.).


Liked about it A good read, it's easy to see the passion of the author. It was great to read about his experience, particularly some of the greenhouse experience he relates to the hobby.


Didn't like I had the original publication of this book, which had a rather cheap binding. There was nothing negative about the content of the book.

book of coral farming

Comments This is a great book for someone who is going to try and go into business for themselves. I was expecting a book for the hobbiest which was very detailed on a very large quantity of specific corals. Instead it covered family's and groups which is pretty comprehensive, just not what i expected. I would consider this book a good tool for a club to pass on information and techniques but does not need to be part of everyones library.


Liked about it I liked the fact that all major propagation styles were covered as well as different techniques for grow-out. Additionally several systems for shipping were covered which was invaluable information for people who want to trade even over long distances including mail. I was very satisfied by the tools section which gave a lot of options other than spending a mint on bone clippers or trade prop tools. I think everyone is happy when things are made easier by showing how standard household items can be utilized instead of specialized tools.


Didn't like The title and selling audience is not targeted very well. The book should never be judged by its title but with no background i did not believe that the book was for coral farmers.
