The natural coral reef environment is alive with so much colour, variety and activity that it is not surprising that fishkeepers aspire to setting up a tropical aquarium in the home. And interest is not restricted just to the dazzling fishes that dart between the coral heads. Many of the corals themselves can be nurtured and displayed in an aquarium and with them the myriad of invertebrate creatures that bring a new level of fascination to the underwater spectacle. Of course, there are new disciplines to learn compared to setting up a tropical freshwater aquarium, especially understanding how fish and invertebrates get along together. By focusing on how these animals live and behave in the wild, this book brings new insight to guide the aquarist's decision making and provide clear guidelines on how to create a harmonious and viable reef aquarium display.
