I have a copy of Aquarium Corals by Eric Borneman that gives a great overview of many different corals. The book does an awesome job of explanning the needs of various corals, ie lighting, food and current. It is filled with countless color photos of corals in the wild and in reef systems. It breaks down the corals into family, genus and with species names and common names. I don't have a reef tank yet but I have already spent hours reading and getting familiar with many types of coral

Please feel free to put a review of this book on our reviews area. It seems like no one wants to use our new review software.
