If it is that basic information you are searching for, then I would strongly suggest that you go to the nearest book store and get some of the following:

http://www.aquariumadvice.com/saltbook.php

You DO have to read about the subject to determine what it is all about, what you want, want you can realistically afford, etc... There is one heck of a learning curve involved with marine aquariums and marine fish keeping, and it is far from being cheap too.

Do a lot of reading and internet search before jumping in, to save yourself some time, money and grief.

Good luck and welcome to the site.

IMO, you should plan to wait 4 weeks before buying ANYTHING. Read here, plus the books commonly recommended.

Hi eman. The link that Serge provided has at least 12 books from what I've seen. If you can only see one, there must be a problem with the full page getting to you.
