    I’ve only been in the hobby going on 7 years now and when I was learning it was just easier and cheaper to watch YouTube. I do enjoy reading but when I would go to my LFS I would see the books, and they were expensive. Then, I just assumed it was the “LFS Markup”. You know anything related to aquariums and add 30% to the price tag. I later found out when browsing Amazon that these books were just that expensive. One day I will own some aquarium literature of my own. Right now all I can do is be jealous of Jake’s, Rich’s and Ben book collection. I thinking about picking up ReefBum’s book on SPS. Have you read it?
