    Hello all! I have a spare tank laying around, and am considering building a nano reef. does anyone have any recommended books or articles? I have heard that the Nano Reef Handbook is good, is there anything else? Thanks for any suggestions!

    The New Marine Aquarium; Step-by-Step Setup and Stocking Guide, by Michael S. Paletta or The Conscientious Marine Aquarist: A Commonsense Handbook for Successful Saltwater Hobbyists, by Bob Fenner are about the best two books to buy on how to setup and maintain saltwater tanks. They will teach you a lot. Make sure you read one or both of them before buying any equipment.
    Stock the tank you have, not the tank you plan to have. Always have and use patience.

    For those of you who want a SW tank and never have had one before or just starting out, read this blog entry from my blog on AC, it will give you a place to start.

    They all seemed pretty interesting, and good reference books. I got them for a pretty decent deal on amazon
