Hey everyone some of you may know me some may not. I have been talking about my new book for a while and it is almost here. Its a long process in making a book and i am getting excited as the release date gets closer. This book is directly driven towards the novice and beginner for breeding. The soul purpose is a very simplified way from start to finish on how to start breeding and raise some fish. There will be a highly advanced version of the book that will make way sometime in 2012 where I will be teaming up with 4 very highly respected breeders to make the ultimate book. My goal with this book is to allow the novice or beginner and even in between breeders to see what it's like from a hobbyist point of view on breeding. The book will be available through amazon and hopefully Nano-reef itself. I am in the works on making it a kindle as well as an iPhone app and an iBook. The hard copy is what has been taking so long and I can't speed up printing but I am expected to have copies in the next three weeks. Saying all this I would love to make a list on people interested and of course as a tradition I will have some free book giveaways. I hope there is interest because I am attempting to help all the people with questions. In the book there is a FAQ section with over 20 questions that are always asked over and over again and I tried my best to elaborate on these questions. I hope I can personally talk to you all with interest and good luck. Thank you

That's awesome! I have been looking for a book like that! My clownfish have been flirting like crazy and most of the stuff I have found has been vague. I'll probably be interested in a copy.

Thank you very much everyone. The book is under 100 pages and it's so simple and to the point you guys and gals will love it. I cannot wait I been trying for a year to do this and it's finally almost here. I was a novice at one point and by far I still learn things till today but sharing my experience and the simplest way to breed and raise clownfish was my goal. I know it will be a hit and I cannot wait
