KIRKUS REVIEW

This collects all tested information to date on a marine fish aquarium for beginner or more advanced hobbyist and provides a work book of importance for those who have strayed from fresh water to salt water varieties. From the setting up of the tank and its management and maintenance to the collecting of both natural salt water and the specimens themselves, this concentrates on the care and precautions needful to keep the aquarium family alive and healthy. The watchful housekeeping against toxic conditions, against changes in salinity, against materials not stable in salt water; the need for cleanliness, attention to feeding, prompt action for sickness; the choosing of compatible varieties and the decoration of the tank- this guides and instructs from personal experience as well as from advice of others in the field. One of the few books on this particular, growing hobby, this should find a steady market.
