    I dont think there is much at Chapters. Any time I check, they have little to nothing. A good book if you can get ahold of it is: Aquarium Corals by Eric Borneman . I checked the site here, and I did not see it, so am not sure if Ivan has it.

    I second Reefmania's suggestion.

    Anthony Calfo's book of Coral Propagation also has tons of information, just no pretty pictures.

    Yes, also Julian Sprung's book. Another VERY interesting book to read but is not just about corals is the "Reef Invertabrates" book by Anthony Calfo & Bob Fenner. It is a new book and up to date on all the current reefkeeping practices. Unfortuantely, these books always have to be ordered online as most retail bookstores never carry the good ones.... and I think Ivan is able to get them all.
