Postby Donelan47 » Thu Jul 10, 2014 9:08 pm

Hi all my names Shaun I am a new commer to the salt water hobby myself! Throughout highschool I had lots of freshwater fish and was very successful with keeps African cichlids in my 55g tank I got out of fish tanks when I left for the military and got rid of all my equipment! I've always wanted to do saltwater but never had the know how on it and now that I have the time I will be slowly building my first saltwater fishtank the right now so I apologize in advance for a numerous amount of question asking!

Welcome to the club! Do yourself a favor and grab the book "Reef Aquarium Volume 3" and read that bad boy front to back. I loved it but read, read, read anything you can get your hands on to be aware of the many aspects of this hobby. That way when a situation arises, you will have had a little exposure to it and possibly an avenue to correct it. But there are a lot of good people here ready to help out

I would check Amazon. Probably a good spot to pick one up at a decent price. eBay maybe as well?

Welcome Shaun! Was a pleasure to meet you at the store! I have the book here at home still sealed. I thought I could sell you a copy and get another one. But unfortunately looks like they are no longer printing that book, New on amazon is $100 Used is $80. Ebay - $190-200. OUCH! So I don't think Ill sell it off. Even my supplier where I got this one from dropped it. :( If you would like to browse through it someday day the store, you are welcomed to. Another good book is The Coral Reef Aquarium by Tony Vargas. It is more current, but also out of print production. I have that one as well. I will have to bring my library to the store I guess.
