The second volume in the heavy hitting Public Aquarium Husbandry Series may not be for everyone but if you are at all looking into building a very large reef aquarium or you just really want to know more about corals, Advances in Coral Husbandry is sure to be a steak and potatoes kind of read. This large publication is a recap of the Coral Husbandry symposium which took place at Burgers Zoo in Rotterdam, Holland just under two years ago. Many of the topics focus on how corals really work and the book brings together all of the big names in large coral system design including Dr. Bruce Carlson, Mitch Carl, Fernando Nostrapour and many, many more. The volume is sure to include a plethora of novel information about corals. For more information about what this book covers, see the table of contents. The 444 page volume will set U.S. residents back a cool $90 and it is now available to order online.
