Good book recommendations for the beginning reefer

I'm gathering info for an upcoming tank upgrade (from FOWLR to reef). I was wondering what books folks would recommend, both for general reefkeeping and also more specific books on corals or inverts. I do have Fenner's Conscientious Marine Aquarist already.

Thanks!

More specifically, The Reef Aquarium volumes are considered the "Bibles" of reef-keeping and pretty beginner friendly. I also highly recommend Aquarium Corals by Borneman. For more advanced reading on corals, Corals of the World by JEN Veron.

Aquarium Corals by Eric Borneman would be my recommendation.

Yep. That's the one. I've been known to take mine to the lfs with me.

The guys at my LFS carry Marine Fishes by Scott Michael in their back pockets. I asked for the book by Borneman and Marine Fishes for Christmas.
