    I'm a longtime FW aquarist with experience in large-scale FW/SW aquaculture, but I'm pretty new to reefing. Can someone recommend a few good books to help me bone up on reefing & SW in general, or direct me to an existing thread that addresses this? Thanks!

    The archives section of these forums are also a great place of reference!
