Looking for a good resource on SW keeping - suggestions?

A friend of mine recommended Fenner - The Conscientious Marine Aquarist: A Commonsense Handbook for Successful Saltwater Hobbyists. Can any body second this recommendation or do you any of you have another suggestion? I've looking at going LR with fish only probably and I want a good resource to read through carefully before I start putting everything together. (I used to keep FW and I am now moving to SW if that helps)

Duley seconded!

It's available from the library at this site too. The only thing that I differ with in this book is cycling with fish. Use grocery store shrimp instead.

But yes, a very good book to read before you buy anything.

Good luck and keep us posted on yur progress.
