Robert Patzner, Dr. Horst Moosleitner, Dr. Manfred Schluter, Wilhelm Tomey - Mergus Publishers The Baensch Marine Atlas Volume 1 is the first in a series of three books that covers the setup of saltwater aquariums and the plants, animals, invertebrates and corals that could be kept in them. These books are very thick and the first volume has around pages! It is huge and packed full of saltwater aquarium setup, invertebrate and fish information. The first half of volume one covers saltwater aquarium setup information and the second half gets into the detailed profiles for algae, inverts, anemones and fishes.
They use a key in the profiles that takes some getting used to but once you do get used to it, it makes sense. More details below on the each of the sections. Equipment Choices, the invertebrate aquarium, the fish-only aquarium, the combination aquarium, the basic algae scrubber, technical equipment and systems, choosing a tank, the bottom substrate, aquarium backgrounds and decorations Water The aquarium water is one of the most important components in a saltwater aquarium and getting your parameters correct is crucial.

These Baensch Marine Atlases are massive, loaded with information and expensive but definitely worth it if you find marine aquarium keeping as fascinating as I do. I can never get enough good information and even though it is a bit dated, I still give this book 5 stars.
