Books

I just recently started my adventure in the salt water world. I was wondering if anyone had any good books they would recommend to pick up and read. I have a fowlr currently but will be venturing into corals later down the road once I have a stable tank up and running for a few months.

I don't have any books to suggest but there's an abundance of articles. When I get to a pc I can link some for you if you want.

Aquarium book writing isn't nearly as popular as it once was and most that are out there are very outdated. Its mostly internet articles nowadays.

Anything on the right of "Fish Health"
Corals by Borneman and the pocket expert series by Michael are highly recommended.
Pretty much all I know is contained here.

Anything by Holmes-Farley on reefkeeping.com

Any books you'd suggest specifically? What's a good search term to use to find good ones?
