The Conscientious Marine Aquarist
A Commonsense Handbook for Successful Saltwater Hobbyists

BRINGING THE ETHICS and curiosity of a marine ecologist to the home aquarium field, Robert Fenner provides new standards and fresh insights into the intelligent selection and care of captive saltwater fishes and invertebrates. As a pragmatic, hands-on guide for beginning to intermediate hobbyists, The Conscientious Marine Aquarist demystifies the process of planning, setting up, stocking, and managing a beautiful, thriving slice of the tropical ocean. A leading advocate for the responsible collection and care of wild-caught specimens, Fenner starts with the basics -- "What is a fish?" -- and proceeds to give the reader the scientific background and expert-level secrets to being a smarter consumer, better steward, and more successful marine aquarium keeper.

AT LAST, here is a lavishly illustrated, popularly priced American book to compete with the expensive European texts that dominate the marine aquarium field.

The Conscientious Marine Aquarist includes:
-Honest Advice for Beginners
-Great Fishes & Invertebrates for the Home Aquarium
-Foolproof Setup Techniques
-Species to Avoid

Robert Fenner is a former college-level marine science instructor and one of the aquarium hobby's most prolific magazine journalists. He is an advisor to leading public aquaria and lives in San Diego, California.
