From the Author
One of my greatest motivations for writing this book was the witness of a strong cottage industry of dedicated aquarists and zoological professionals passionate about reef invertebrate propagation. It is my sincere hope that this book inspires aquarists from among the motley crew of reef enthusiasts to develop the industry of coral propagation beyond its aquaristic roots. I look forward to the day when the term mariculture is synonymous with the phrase reef aquaria. I look forward to the day when aquarists are so well informed that the successful keeping of coral reef fish and invertebrates is inherently united with the task of propagation.
I hope your reading of this passage finds you in good health and spirit.
With kind regards, Anthony Calfo

Book of Coral Propagations was written by someone who farms corals commercially in a small greenhouse in Pittsburgh. There is something in this book for everyone who keeps live corals. Reef hobbyists will benefit in general from information on habitat, husbandry, lighting, water motion, and so forth. Those interested in farming corals commerically will benefit from chapters on greenhouse design and shipping and handling techniques. ALL will benefit from the chapters on coral families and propagation.
The book is packed with information-- nearly to the page edge! There are a few line drawings and color photos, but this is not a picture book. Nevertheless, the book is clearly written and you'll have no trouble following along. The author's sense of humor even pokes through in places.
If you keep corals, _Book of Coral Propagations_ is worth having. Check it out!
This book is very readable and not dry at all. Its actually a good read which is rare in a truly useful book. The style and organization of this book make it a book that is never on my book shelf, it's most often on my nightstand becasue it always seems to have another gem of wisdom to impart.
