Any reef aquarium that contains less than 15 gallons of water is considered a nano-reef aquarium. These tiny ecosystems are almost as popular in the fishkeeping community as full-size marine aquarium setups, and with the proper information and tools, they can be set up and maintained by aquarists at any level of the hobby.
The wide range of topics covered in this guide include the importance of water quality and tips on maintaining stable water parameters; components of a nano-reef and how to choose the appropriate aquarium, lighting, and accessories for a tank; which fish and invertebrates are best for these types of tanks; and much, much more.
For a reef enthusiast looking for a new challenge or any up-and-coming fish hobbyist, nano-reef aquarium are a stunningly beautiful option. The Nano-Reef Handbook contains all the information necessary to get started.

CHRISTOPHER BRIGHTWELL has been an aquarium hobbyist for more than 25 years and has set up and maintained all manner of aquaria. In 1999, he earned a degree in Marine Science from Coastal Carolina Univerity. Chris and his wife currently live in Keansburg, New Jersey, with their 180-gallon planted aquarium and 75-gallon reef aquarium.From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up—Marine aquaria are not for the faint of heart, needing careful setups, informed denizen selection, and proper maintenance far beyond the care of simple guppies in a jam jar. Here, Brightwell focuses on a unique format-the nano- (or mini) reef, weighing in at tanks of 15 gallons or under. Beginning with the necessity for consistent water quality, he follows through with the proper physical components (tanks, water monitors, filters, lighting, etc.) and the role of complete routine maintenance procedures before getting down to the nitty-gritty of stocking. His advice on selecting motile and sessile invertebrates and on choosing fish is thoughtful, as is his chapter on setting up (which includes several effective templates). Larded with attractive color photos, from the eye-catching cover through the informative text, the book includes Internet resources, useful organizations and publications, and an extensive index. Less detailed perhaps than Vincent B. Hargeaves's large-format The Complete Book of the Marine Aquarium (Thunder Bay, 2002), this volume is more informative than David E. Boruchowitz's colorful Starting Your Marine Aquarium (T.F.H., 1998) and somewhat more complex than George Blasiola's The Saltwater Aquarium Handbook (Barron's, 2000). Brightwell has created an up-to-date how-to for competent aquarists with limited space.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
