The (New) Marine Aquarium Handbook, Volume 1: The Chemical Environment – by Martin A. Moe, Jr.

Martin Moe’s classic Marine Aquarium Reference has been out of print for years, but anyone who knows Moe understands that his curious spirit and drive to innovate and remain productive are still burning at his core. Not content to leave project as a file on a hard drive in some dusty computer, Moe has recently revisited the Marine Aquarium Reference.

The (New) Marine Aquarium Reference, Volume 1: The Chemical Environment, is the first in a series of five digital volumes which have updated and revitalized Moe’s classic text.  Volume 1 covers everything you could ever want to know about the chemistry and chemical makeup of the marine environment.  A total of 92 chapters covers everything from the Composition of Natural and Captive Seawater to water chemistry maintenance and redox potential. Dozens of chapters examine selected elements including commonly discussed items like Calcium and Magnesium, but Moe delves into greater detail on everything from Potassium to Scandium and Arsenic.

One look at the breadth and depth of subject matter covered in The (New) Marine Aquarium Reference, Volume 1, suggests that any reefer worth their salt owes it to themselves to put the entire series on their reading list. The (New) Marine Aquarium Reference, Voume 1, can be purchased as an eBook via SmashWords.com
