Books

There is a wealth of knowledge available to us in the form of books ... here are some books which are highly recommended ("required reading") ... these are "World Class" books for the marine hobbyist!

These are books which I consider to have been immeasurably important in my understanding of how saltwater tanks work. In a large part, due to the ease of readability and the simplicity of how they communicate the complexities of our hobby. I couldn't imagine my bookshelf without them.
