The book is concise and simply stated. I have read other marine aquaria books since, but most aren't written quite as gracefully. A beginner only needs one book to get started and be successful in this hobby, and this is it. It has all the fundamentals.
The nominal cost of this book will save you much money in the long run. Follow the advise in the book without exception--especially, regarding the setting up of a quarantine tank. Also, as Mr. Paletta et al note, live rock and a protein skimmer is the way to go!
Good luck and have fun with your new hobby!
PS-Marine Fishes by Scott W. Michael makes an execellent companion book to The New Marine Aquarium. As your hobby experience progresses, I think it should be the second book you buy. Eventually you may want to know more detailed information about what fishes get along with other fishes to successfully stock your tank. There is a dizzying variety of fishes to choose from and they aren't all listed in The New Marine Aquarium. Best of all is that Marine Fishes is palm sized!

I found so much good, useful info in this book. I could not put it down until I finished it. It gives great examples of how to set up a new aquarium step by step. I would recommend this book to any one who is thinking about starting a saltwater aquarium.

This book covers the how-to process of setting up a fish/live rock marine acquarium. Step-by-step approach makes it wasy for the beginner. Well written and illustrated.

THIS IS A GREAT BOOK. I ENJOYED IT IN IT'S MAJORITY. HIGHLY INFOMATIVE FOR THE BEGINNER IN SALT AQUARIUMS. ALTHOUGH I WOULD RECOMMEND USING IT IN CONJUNCTION WITH ANOTHER TITLE, PREFERABLY Ä SIMPLE GUIDE TO MARINE AQUARIUMS". THIS AY THE COMBINATION WORKS GREAT. I SUCEEDED AND BELIEVE ME I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD
