"The Most Beautiful Aquariums of the World" is geen aquariumboek. Het is een boek over aquaria als sierelement; aquaria als hoogtepunt van een interieur. Dit boek legt net zo zeer de nadruk op (binnenhuis)architectuur en het meubilair, als op de aquaria en de levende waterorganismen. Fotoreeksen en tekst vertellen een verhaal over hoe een klein stukje natuur, in de vorm van een leven in een aquarium, deel uit kan maken van een prachtige ruimte.

Corals are the master builders of the ocean world. This book examines these animals' living habits, anatomy, reproduction, growth patterns, and hunting techniques. A special chapter focuses on coral reefs, including where they are found, different types of environmental threats.

By looking at small, specialized habitats, this series brings to life the multiple complexities present in even the most common or simple environments.

Coral reefs throughout the tropics support an amazing diversity of fish - from eye-catching butterflyfish, which hover around the corals, to secretive gobies, and venomous scorpionfish lying camouflaged on the sea bed. The appeal of coral fish lies not only in the exquisite beauty that some are renowned for, but in their fascinating lifestyles and behaviour.;This work aims to offer an insight into the diversity of the fish that live in and around coral reefs. It explores the varied lifestyles of these fish - the means by which they find food and shelter on the reef, and their complex interactions. The author describes the partnerships of anemonefish and sea anemones, grazing activities of parrotfish and surgeonfish, and the lifestyles of many other fish that live on coral reefs, huge predatory groupers and even sharks among them.

Keeping live corals has been likened to "Bonsai for the Cousteau generation" and "the ultimate underwater gardening experience." Beautiful, bizarre, and among nature's most colorful creations, living corals are now being successfully kept and grown in tens of thousands of home saltwater aquariums.
For the first time, master aquarist Eric Borneman offers an authoritative, comprehensive, and fully illustrated guide to appropriate aquarium species, including a diversity of soft corals, as well as popular and rare large-polyp and small-polyp stony corals. World-class photographs and text reviewed by leading coral biologists and coral keepers guides the reader through the selection and husbandry of hundreds of species.
