    Vince's list is very good.

    I like to seperate SW books into two types: the "how to keep a saltwater aquarium" type, and the "field manual of organisms" type.

    If you want a good book about how to set up and maintain a SW aquairum, I really like the John Tullock book that Vince mentioned. It covers all of the basics like live rock, algae, water parameters, lighting etc.,

    Next, I'd go for the "field manual" type books. Get one or more that lists and describes all of the various orgainism classifications (ie: corals, crabs, shrimp, fish, anemones, etc. etc. etc.). I have the Marine Atlas Volumes by Debelius and they are pretty good (don't expect any book of this type to be absolutely complete).

    When I first started the hobby, someone told me to buy the Saltwater aquariums for dummies book. It helped me alot.
    Cheers,
