Welcome to AA!! You chose a great place to look for help.
I'm not too sure of which books are good, but here's what I know:
Light--they need alot of good, intense light, with some of it in the 420-450 nm range, to optimize zooanthellae growth inside of them.
Salinity-- ~1.025 sg
water parameters-- they are extremely nitrate intolerant, can't handle nitrites or ammonias at all, and do not like extreme temperature swings (6 degrees in a day really is too much). They do benefit from having a proper amount of strontium in the water, but its not good practice to add anything to the water without testing for what you are adding.
other than that, they need to be supplemented a couple of times/week with food: blended shrimp, fish, clams, squid, crab, (whatever you feel like). some poeple food vitamin supplements in the food like Kent Marine's Zoe, for additional nutrition. HTH
. Good luck, and keep us posted.
