Saltwater Fish and Reef Tanks is the premier source of information for new and experienced saltwater aquarium owners. If you want a happy, stable, colorful, and healthy saltwater fish tank, you need to read this book. The author is a long-time reef enthusiast who started his first saltwater aquarium setup nearly fifteen years ago. Mr. Blanchard is also a past store owner. Whether you’re looking to setup a saltwater reef or a fish only tank, this book was written as an explanation and road-map to success in caring for your aquarium equipment, fish, corals, and invertebrates.

Neil Barnhart called Saltwater Fish and Reef Tanks, “a must have for anyone interested in starting in the hobby,” and went on to say he'd been “in the hobby for 5 years now” and can “finally understand things” he was “embarrassed to ask the store guy”

david S. said it is, "Right to the point essential information" and went on to call it, "A must have reference that will make the hobby experience a lot more enjoyable."

Matt Brown said, "great tool to use”, “The tables within it are extremely useful”, and “I can't think of another book that was as easy and enjoyable to read.”

Blaine Hatton said, “it took many mistakes to learn what this book explains. I would recommend it to anyone that is interested in beginning a saltwater aquarium.” It “will help save you a lot of headaches and probably lots of money.”

Bo Garrett said it provides “motivation and inspiration” and it has “an unbelievable amount of information.”

Mr. Blanchard walks the reader through the process of owning a saltwater aquarium setup from the perspective of a beginner. Starting with his first reef tank experience, and ending with a chapter on responsible reef-keeping, the reader is offered a vast amount of information that usually costs the aquarist quite a bit of time and money to obtain; the precise reason most hobbyists give up – within the first year - on owning a beautiful saltwater aquarium.

Not only is almost every aspect of owning your first saltwater fish tank in this book, but Zechariah explains it in an easy-to-understand conversational-tone. The reader is encouraged to make copies of tables provided in the book and use them for maintenance logs, testing logs, and aquarium cost calculations. There is an extensive amount of information about the cycling period, water parameters and testing, necessary equipment, picking healthy livestock, acclimation of livestock, coral coloration, and lots more information on saltwater aquariums.
