Here’s an overview of what awaits you in the pages of
Nano Reef Aquarium by Albert Thiel
Filtration for the Nano-Reef
Minimum Requirements
Stocking the Nano-Reef (Fishes and Such)
Corals and Inverts, Crustaceans and more
Pests, Parasites
Diseases of Corals
Non-Photosynthetic Corals
The Cleaning Crew in Detail.

This 448 page book isn’t some little pocket guide to nano reef’s, it is a comprehensive aquarium reference book – one that will needs to find a place next to your other reefkeeping titles.

What can you expect from Albert’s insight into nano reefs? A bucket load! This book pretty much contains every single thing you could possibly think about when it comes to nano reefs. Lighting through to coral pests, macro algae’s and oxydators – it’s all in here. Even the “newer” reefkeeping methods such as ZEOvit and biopellets get a nod in this book – but from a nano point of view. Everything that is in this book is nano reef associated, kind of a ‘nano first, big tank later’ type of thinking. It’s refreshing.

You might be wondering if this book will teach you something – I’m certain you’ll find something new in this publication – do you know what an oxydator is? Perhaps the usual reef aquarium basics (filtration, lighting etc) aren’t your thing but the livestock references alone make this book invaluable. Albert talks fish, corals, algae, critters and everything else you might find living in your little patch of reef.

To ensure that the content of this book remains relevant, Albert will be keeping it up to date via the monthly “Marine Reef” newsletter. This is a good idea as printed material can become dated quite quickly in today’s digital age.

What I really like about this book is that the overall tone is very much a conversational one – it’s like you’ve got Albert personally talking to you about all these nano reef subjects. It makes for an easy read, even when things start to get complicated. Albert’s writing flows really well – sometimes a little too well – but we’re all guilty of rambling at the best of times when it comes to discussing our passions.

From a content stand point, Nano Reef Aquariums, is an outright winner – reading this one cover to cover is going to take even the most seasoned reader a good amount of time. The shear volume of information contained within the pages might need a good few passes before you are able to retain all of it. The photography throughout is of a high-level, but you’re not going to find pages and pages of glorious aquarium photography – the images found on these pages do a good job of supporting the subjects Albert addresses.

Sea Dwelling Creatures is Cutting Edge

Our large husbandry staff has been working with some of the nations leading veterinarians and is staying on the cutting edge of Marine Animal Husbandry Techniques.

We have recently added several state of the art systems including our Coral Boutique system to hold our finest high end SPS and other Aussie, Fiji, Solomon, Cultured and Jakarta corals. This system has a variety of lighting for the “comfort” of the different types of corals that it houses and is temperature controlled to a level of +/-1 degree.

Our Shrimp holding system has had tremendous success with Cleaner and Fire Shrimps. It houses only these animals to ensure the purest water conditions possible.

We have also added a brand new Fish system for housing clownfish and some other delicate species to make certain that they are properly quarantined for all of our greater success.

Four more good reasons to purchase your livestock from SDC!

Safety Stop review on Reef


Cobalt Aquatics has given us back the powerhead we all knew and loved,
the MJ Powerhead! We used to know this as a “Maxi-Jet” from another company that decided to change their design and make it cheaper in another country, but this is the original Italian made “MJ” that is known for it’s superior craftsmanship and durability.
Sea Dwelling Creatures is proud to be able to offer the best powerhead in the history of our industry from our friends at Cobalt Aquatics!
Video link showing all of the original accessories and MJ Powerheads

Cobalt has also designed the best aquarium heater we have ever seen!

The Neo-Therm plastic heater has only one button for simplicity of setting the desired temperature for your aquarium. Made of hard, unbreakable plastic, the Neo-Therm is the best long term value in the heater market. Fully submersible!

Many have tried and failed to make a quality heater but Cobalt has found success!
