Reefkeeping science involves the interplay of biology, chemistry, and physics. However, a reef aquarium is not simply a product of scientific knowledge. The application of engineering and its product technology, makes it possible to duplicate the specific biological, chemical, and physical requirements of a coral reef in a relatively small volume of water. This third volume in The Reef Aquarium series, provides the most thorough description of the science behind the creation of a captive reef, and critically reviews and explains the different philosophical approaches to reef aquarium design. It also describes and illustrates the existing as well as emerging technology for building reef aquariums, to help guide the selection of equipment, its proper use, and installation.

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.
