Research sites

This forum has alot of great information but I always see people mentioning researching the fish / corals you get

Does anyone have a good site that lists different corals, lighting requirements and feeding requirements as well as a site for different fish and feeding requirements.

I don't wanna be the guy who posts every other day with a picture of a cool looking coral asking how to raise it.

I am aware of this site listed below.

Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums

I know you can find lots of sites by googling but who know what trust worthy.

Drs. F&S LiveAquaria is a good resource. Their descriptions are usually pretty accurate.
If you want more detailed info on fish you can try www.fishbase.org

For fish, Fishbase is all you really need.

For corals you can purchase the following books (better than online at the moment for more scientific/in depth research):

Borneman, "Aquarium Corals." Has a solid overview of many soft, lps, and sps along with care requirements.

Fabricious & Alderslade, "Soft Corals and Sea Fans." Extremely detailed and reads like fishbase.

Veron, "Corals of The World." Scleractinian (hard corals) research, extremely detailed, and reads like fishbase.
