Simplified Approaches to Creating Living
Saltwater Microcosms

ONE OF THE most biologically rich environments on Earth, the coral reef dazzles our senses with its colors, shapes, and species diversity.
Recreating living reefs in miniature is a burgeoning avocation for serious home aquarium keepers, and John Tullock here offers a new, radically simple approach to producing beautiful captive microcosms.
Using live rock and live coral sand as part of a natural filtration system, the home aquarist can now mimic habitats such as a Florida Keys Lagoon, a Caribbean Turtle Grass Flat, an Indo-Pacific Deep Cave, or a Red Sea Patch Reef. With more than 100 color photographs and illustrations, Natural Reef Aquariums provides inspiration for both beginning and expert marine reef hobbyists.

"LESS TECHNOLOGY, more biology" is author John Tullock's theme song, and in this landmark book he provides step-by-step formulas for creating miniature reef aquaria that are simpler, cheaper, healthier, and truer to nature's own systems.

Natural Reef Aquariums includes:
-Understanding Live Rock & Live Sand
-The Biotope Approach
-Simplified Filtration Techniques
-Recommended Reef Species
-Beginner Planning Guides
-Authentic Aquascapes
-World-Class Reef Habitat Photographs
