Recommended Books

Posted 05/16/2014 at 05:42 AM by snorvich (System configuration and fish for my two tanks)

Two books I highly recommend are:

Fish Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment by Dr. Edward J Noga.

Captive Seawater Fishes: Science and Technology by Dr. Stephen Spotte

While not the easiest reading, they are both superb.

Both books are somewhat expensive but are well worth the money.
