    Coral Magazine

    Hi everyone FYI,
    I just recieved my first copy of the transalated German Magazine KORALLE by D.Knop
    This magazine is available every 2 months and is called CORAL The Marine Aquarium Magazine.

    This Volume talks about building and sustaining a Nano Reef Aquaria,amongst many other great topics.

    Here is a Intro:

    In 1999, noted German marine aquarist Daniel Knop had an idea. He was concerned by the lack of reader-friendly, reliable information about the marine aquarium hobby available in the literature at the time. He decided to create a magazine that would serve a much broader spectrum of marine enthusiasts than was currently being served.

    He envisioned a publication that would not only provide cutting-edge information to the advanced and expert marine aquarist, but would also offer support to the hobbyist just starting out, as well as a "window to the sea" for the many armchair aquarists eager to learn about the underwater environment without getting wet. So, with the help of publisher Matthias Schmidt, Koralle was born.

    With the able assistance of an advisory board that includes an international blend of experts in all aspects of the hobby, such as Alf Nilsen and Svein Fossa , Koralle prides itself in offering a content-driven alternative to most other marine publications currently available to hobbyists. It is a magazine devoted to providing a bridge from the world's ocean environments to the home aquarist, using the finest photographs and latest information from noted marine aquarists worldwide.

    In just four short years, Koralle has proven to be more than just the premier marine- and reefkeeping reference in Germany. The magazine is so popular that many issues are no longer available. In fact, it has become a collectors item, with out-of-print copies commanding high prices whenever it is found on Internet auction sites, such as EBay. Most importantly, this is a magazine that hobbyists and armchair aquarists alike will keep on their shelves for many years to come.

    In keeping with the high standards set by Koralle, we are now pleased to offer our own English language version called Coral. Kathleen Wood, former editor of Aquarium Fish Magazine and Aquarium Frontiers Online, along with a panel of experts in the marine aquarium hobby, including Charles Delbeek, Mike Paletta and Ron Shimek, to name just a few, is dedicated to maintaining the overall content, look and feel of Koralle, as well as providing a forum for American aquarists to exchange ideas and information about their hobby with the international community.

    Unlike any of the other marine fish- and reefkeeping magazine currently available, Coral contains in-depth articles on topics of interest to hobbyists of all levels. Each subject is covered in detail, complete with hands on do-it-yourself setup information, as well as breeding and husbandry details necessary to successfully keep many animals in the home aquarium. Much of the information provided has been tried and tested by a panel of renowned international experts.

    Each issue of Coral is packed with breathtaking photographs and informative articles. There are "Tips and Tricks" for aquarists of all levels and a "Getting Started is Easy" column designed to help the beginner avoid many of the pitfalls often encountered by the novice aquarist. There is enough information in the pages of each issue of Coral to ensure that those with a true desire to duplicate a mini-marine ecosystem at home are able to succeed.

    Coral also offers the armchair aquarist the opportunity to explore far off regions of the world's oceans without leaving home. Each issue contains a travelogue to destinations around the world. Whether you take a trip to "Clipperton, the Forgotten Isle," or explore the habitats of the Great Barrier Reef, there is sure to be something for anyone with a genuine interest in our aquatic ecosystems.

    Coral is sure to become a must-have reference on the shelves of all those with an appreciation of the marine environment, and a desire to presreve it for generations to come. Join us as we uncover some of the mysteries of this truly awe-inspiring world.

    Yes, Leng has been working to get it published in English for the past year.
    This first Issue I got is really good with lots of articles and very little advertising. which I found a turn off from other mags when there is more adds than info.
