From the Back Cover
Saltwater aquariums bring the calming beauty of a tropical reef right into your home and make you feel attuned to nature. But when you're creating a saltwater aquarium, the key is choosing fish, invertebrates, seaweeds, and corals that are in harmony with each other. There are more than 500 species of reef fish to choose from, and some are not compatible. This book is your recipe for saltwater aquarium success. It gives you the basics of setup, maintenance, and design considerations, but it goes beyond that to include:
- More than 40 specific recipes for saltwater aquariums, including biotope designs (mimicking barrier reefs, atolls, lagoons, etc.) and designs emphasizing form and color
- A catalog of saltwater fish featuring more than 100 aquarium species
- A catalog of saltwater invertebrates, seaweeds, and marine plants, covering more than 150 invertebrate types
- A 16-page color catalog of fish, invertebrate, and coral varieties
In addition to ready-made model designs, this book helps you make your own choices of species that will coexist in harmony in your spectacular saltwater aquarium.

What good is an Aquarium Modeling book without pictures.
I wish I could get my money back.
Some tedious modules to re-review his various suggestions in selecting tank sizes, fish,
The sections of aquarium models is just a list of fishes and invertebrates or other organisms that are recommended to add in one aquarium.
This is not really a section about models of aquariums or aquarium desing!
It is just some list of organisms that have some compatibility characteristics.
And there is no pictures of the aquarium models ou designs. It is not a useful book to inspire aquarium models or to create beatiful aquariums.
When I was deciding about to buy this book I had some expectation, but after read the book I hate it!
