Keeping live corals has been likened to "Bonsai for the Cousteau generation" and "the ultimate underwater gardening experience." Beautiful, bizarre, and among nature's most colorful creations, living corals are now being successfully kept and grown in tens of thousands of home saltwater aquariums.
For the first time, master aquarist Eric Borneman offers an authoritative, comprehensive, and fully illustrated guide to appropriate aquarium species, including a diversity of soft corals, as well as popular and rare large-polyp and small-polyp stony corals. World-class photographs and text reviewed by leading coral biologists and coral keepers guides the reader through the selection and husbandry of hundreds of species.

This review is for the Kindle edition only:
The pictures are so small they're not viewable and the text describing the pictures is indiscernible from the rest of the text on the page. I like what I'm reading but these issues take away from the e-book.
Please fix these issues!

The book is more than just a great introduction into coral and other invertebrates. It provides a good jumping off to lace for understanding the structure and physiology of corals. I have the kindle version so don't think much of the pictures. It is also not a good choice if you want the simplified version. It covers a number of coral topics in detail. If I only had one book on corals (hint, I have a few) this would be it.
