    Hello fellow reefers,
    I had a reef tank about 25-30 years ago, but had kids and had to sell it off. I recently found a great deal on a 55 gallon tank, and bought it. The kids are gone now, and I have the time and money to turn this tank into a reef tank. However, before I go any farther I need to do some reading up on the subject. Anyone have any suggestions of any must have books?

    Thanks,
    Spirit
