Dr Ashley Ward - Q & A - The Marine Aquarium (2nd Hand Hardback)
A compelling exploration of the natural lives of coral reef fish & invertebrates and how this influences their behaviour & care in a marine aquarium.
As you watch fish and invertebrates in your home marine aquarium, you are witnessing behaviour patterns shaped by their fight for survival in the natural world.
The natural coral reef environment is alive with so much colour, variety and activity that it is not surprising that fish keepers aspire to setting up a tropical reef aquarium in the home. And interest is not restricted just to the dazzling fishes that dart between the coral heads. Many of the corals themselves can be nurtured and displayed in an aquarium and with them the myriad of invertebrate creatures that bring a new level of fascination to the underwater spectacle.
Of course, there are new disciplines to learn compared to setting up a tropical freshwater aquarium, especially understanding how fish and invertebrates get along together.
By focusing on how these animals live and behave in the wild, this book brings new insight to guide the aquarist's decision making and provide clear guidelines on how to create a harmonious and viable reef aquarium display. This book reveals the fascinating facts behind what your marine creatures do and why they do it.
