There are several reasons why interest in setting up a reef aquarium is booming. The sheer impact of recreating such a vibrant underwater scene has always been the main motivation, but in recent years the development of aquarium life-support systems has seen major moves forward. Even novice fishkeepers can feel confident that the complete systems they buy will form the foundation of viable and long-lasting aquarium displays. In step with these 'technical' achievements, there have been vital advances in foods and feeding, plus huge progress made in successful breeding and 'farming' of both fish and invertebrates in captivity. The realisation that coral reefs are among the most endangered natural environments has also increased our awareness of their fragile beauty. With such a fascinating subject matter, this book will find a ready market of enthusiastic readers.
