book recommendation?

I see the list of books to choose from, but is there one in particular that stands obove the rest as a general reference? I've have a FW tank before, and have just started a SW tank. So far, I've got just two damsels, and anemeny, and some LR -- I think I know what I eventually want to end up with, but I'm hampered by not knowing what is compatible with what (species and chemistry-wise).
Any favorite references?
Thanks.
EBR

I like "The Conscientious Marine Aquarist" by Robert M. Fenner for lots of good into on starting up a system and stocking it, as well as "Aquarium Corals" by Eric H. Borneman for learning a lot of information about corals.

Also, The New Marine Aquarium by Michael S. Paletta...
Plus reading the articles on this and other forums and asking lots of questions. Try to keep each post to a single question. You'll get a better response that way.

I agree 100%. The Paletta book is ok but its does not have near the 'general reference' materal that the Fenner book has.
