recommend a coral book?

We'd like a book that talks about corals that are suitable for adding to our aquarium. We already own "Aquarium Corals" by Borneman, but it is a real textbook, going into detail regarding every single species under the sea. What we'd like is a listing (with pictures) on just the ones that do reasonably well and are not too hard to maintain in a tank. Any suggestions?

No guarantees there won't be some in there that aren't suitable for your home aquarium...but you might look at...

That IMO is a very subjective list. What one author consiters easy to maintain or maintainable in an aquarium can be on another authors NO NO list. I like Aquarium Corals because you get the information on all the major coral classes and subclasses and then it kidn of leaves the decision as to what will be good for your tank up to you.
