Natural Reef Aquariums Simplified Approaches to Creating Living Saltwater Microcosms LIB7-76 Natural Reef Aquariums Simplified Approaches to Creating Living Saltwater Microcosms By John H. Tullock One of the most biologically rich environments on Earth, the coral reef dazzles our senses with its colors, shapes, and species diversity. Recreating living reefs in miniature is a burgeoning avocation for serious home aquarium keepers, and John Tullock here offers a new, radically simple approach to producing beautiful captive microcosms. Using live rock and live coral sand as part of a natural filtration system, the home aquarist can now mimic habitats such as a Florida Keys Lagoon, a Caribbean Turtle Grass Flat, an Indo-Pacific Deep Cave, or a Red Sea Patch Reef. With more than 100 color photographs and illustrations, Natural Reef Aquariums provides inspiration for both beginning and expert marine reef hobbyists. Natural Reef Aquariums includes: Understanding Live Rock & Live Sand, The Biotope Approach, Simplified Filtration Techniques, Recommended Reef Species, Beginner Planning Guides, Authentic Aquascapes, World-Class Reef Habitat Photographs, 336 pages, 1997, Full-colour photographs throughout. hardback $25.00
