Martin Moe is truly one of the ground breakers in the hobby and his tome “Marine Aquarium Handbook: Beginner to Breeder” is a must read and handy companion to have around. Recently Moe’s book was awarded a Ben Franklin Award in the Best Science Book of 2010 category. The annual awards are presented by the Independent Book Publishers Association and the Ben Franklin awards are in their 23rd year celebrating excellence in writing, design, and independent publishing.
We are huge fans of Moe’s Marine Aquarium Handbook that recently went through a revision and was released with the introduction from one of our other favorite trailblazers — Julian Sprung. For many years Moe and his wife Barbara published the book themselves producing over 300,000 copies. The revised version of book was published through the publishers of CORAL magazine under the Microcosm/TFH imprint.
Many hands worked on the new version with updated photography from Matt Wittenrich, Scott Michael, Alf Jacob Nilsen, Denise Nielsen Tackett and Larry Tackett, Charles Delbeek, and our very own contributor and breeder Matt Pedersen. Congratulations to Martin and Barbara and a big thanks to all that have contributed to this book over the years.
