Filiberto Valero writes to Bob about:
Fish Disease & Tuberculosis

Good morning Bob! I'm a new hobbyist but I am devouring books, articles and I already have four tanks,(55 gal fish only, 55 reef, 30 gal fish only) and the one with more problems: Is a 375 gal with a 80 gal sump, I have 120 LB live rock and 400 LB live sand, I set it up 2 1/2 months ago, the ammonia is 0, the Nitrate is .0 and the Nitrate is 5mg/l, calcium 420 mg/l, phosphate is .6 mg/l, the alkalinity is 1.8 meq/l or 90 mg/l the pH is 8.6 I think?? because the test kits from Hagen and Aquarium pharmaceuticals you can not tell with accuracy(color results never match the grid). In the more.

Book Review of Reef Fishes, Volume IV: Damselfishes & Anemonefishes

By Scott Michael

TITLE: Reef Fishes, Volume IV: Damselfishes & Anemonefishes AUTHOR: Scott W. Michael PUBLISHER: T.F.H. Publications/Microcosm Ltd. (2008) ISBN 1-890087-97-1 PAGES: 256 PRICE: $44.95 (Hardcover) I'm glad the time between on-going books in this series has seen a somewhat drop in the time between publications, but remain somewhat disappointed that what originally began as a four book series in 1999 expanded to six books a couple of volumes later, and has now become a nine book series. With this addition being number four; it will be years, maybe a decade before the final volume more.
