Product Description

Any reef aquarium that contains less than 15 gallons of water is considered a nano-reef aquarium. These tiny ecosystems are almost as popular in the fish keeping community as full-size marine aquarium setups and, with the proper information and tools, can be set up and maintained by aquarists at any level of the hobby. The Nano-Reef Handbook covers a wide range of topics, including: the importance of water quality and tips on maintaining stable water parameters; components of a nano-reef and how to choose the appropriate aquarium, lighting, and accessories for a tank; which fish and invertebrates are best for these types of tanks; and much, much more. For the reef enthusiast looking for a new challenge, or any up-and-coming fish hobbyist, this all-inclusive guide contains all the information you’ll need to achieve nano-reef success.

5A must read!
By Karen W
This book is a must read for any beginner or advanced Nano Reef aquarist. It clearly explains how to set up and maintain a perfect reef. It also has a great comprehensive list of suggested fish, invert and coral for nano reef. I refer to this book quite often to answer my questions.

5A very useful book
By Leinad11S
After doing a lot of research online I found that this book tied up a lot of loose ends as the information I found online for free was fragmented at best. All my questions and curiosities on nano reef keeping were answered within the one text. Highly recommended, with an abundance of detailed information that can be applied to general and multipurpose reef applications.
