Not what I'd hoped. But good for what it is.

Comments If you are expecting to know the ins and outs of how these systems were set up you will be disappointed. This book gives a general overview of each system (lights, pumps, etc.) and comments to the unique aspects briefly. It is good as a coffee table book or to get an vague idea of what can work but specifics are lacking. Some of the photo are not too great. For what it is this book is good but it is not what most will think of when looking at it online.


Liked about it -Good book for ideas/inspiration
-Great coffee table book
-Not overly expensive


Didn't like -Not in depth case studies of each aquarium
-Some photos are sub-par

Nice picture book, great coffee table fodder

Comments This book is all about showing the wife or significant other what your aquarium could be and or what your trying to build.


Liked about it It had great ideas on different ways to do business
great photo's
Great to compare systems you like to your current tank and how to copy a tank that you like.


Didn't like i think it would have been cool to have a table in the back of the book that showed avrages of light ie watts per gallon of which light, and circulation etc. not nessary but would have been neat.

Nice Picture book

General This book chronicles the authors travels and photo documentary of several large and smaller scale reef aquariums. It doesn't really give much in the way of design ideas other than the "wow that's a cool tank I wonder how they set that up ... oh what they don't explain how" factor. Save your money and borrow a copy from a friend or the library.


Didn't like Not what I thought it was going to be, a road map to how some of these systems were setup.
