    Expensive book with expensive shipping, but does look very nice.

    Does it cover ALL the places that we get coral imports from though?

    Just order yourself Veron's Corals if the World Sean, you'll be lost in paradise for months.
    These guides in the links are a lot more user friendly than Veron's books though.
    Using sites like AIMS etc. does help a lot, but nothing compares to having the printed material at hand

    If it covers Veron's content, which I think it does, then it'll probably cover most hard corals in the world, and definitely ALL genera. IMO it would be more comprehensive than a reefer would need.

    It is an amazing book, and you cannot get another field guide as comprehensive as this. Used in conjunction with corals of the world, you're sorted (you'd probably have to sell one of your children to afford the whole collection though).

    We currently use Corals of the world to ID South African hardies, and we've ordered the new Coral finder for the lab.
