"A better marine aquarium magazine doesn't exist.....literally"
While originally and currently published in Germany as Koralle magazine, CORAL the English version stands as the only magazine exclusive to the marine aquarium hobby currently being offered here in the U.S. With that said, CORAL is a great magazine that I would encourage novice, advanced, and expert marine hobbyist alike to get and enjoy. It is the exclusive premiere marine aquarium magazine.
A better marine aquarium magazine doesn't exist.....literally.
CORAL Magazine skips the basics and ignores the temptation to cater to a more casual crowd with every-other-issue features on tank cycling and the dangers of overfeeding.
Instead, it features less general topics with a slightly more esoteric approach while remaining accessible to average marine hobbyists. Having spent innumerable hours scouring the web and nearly every forum available on marine aquaculture, I can confidently say one can find novel information and ideas in CORAL Magazine that are rarely, if ever, discussed anywhere else. (See August/September 2007 issue discussing what the author calls "induced longitudinal fission" of Ricordea for a great example.)
This magazine provides incredible photographs, well-written articles, and insightful commentary. Any hobbyist who has spent more than a few hours reading through books or online forums in this subject should greatly appreciate CORAL magazine.
"The Ultimate Reefkeeping Magazine"
This is a wonderful magazine for anyone interested in reefkeeping. The topics are discussed in depth and the photography is awesome. This magazine is worth every penny.
"Excellent Marine Aquarium Magazine"
This magazine is excellent. It is originally published in Germany (the founding editor, Daniel Knop, is German), but then translated into, among several languages, English. The articles are very interesting information - each issue is dedicated to a different topic that you can read to the level you want; anyone from a beginner aquarist to one who has been in the hobby for many years will find useful information.
The entire magazine is a high-quality color print, no cheap pages. It is published every two months, and it usually takes me that long to truly digest all of the information. Other topics also include sections dedicated to the beginner aquarist, and general articles of interest to anyone interested in the marine environment and new discoveries.
Yes, there are online reef magazines, but this complements them and does not duplicate them. Get it if you are in the hobby!
Truly worth the money; an absolutely excellent quality product!
"Best Mag Out for Reefkeeping Hobby"
This is by far the best magazine available to reefkeeping hobbyists. I have read every issue released so far. The magazine explains techniques promoted by modern reef aquarists around the world, and especially from Europe
Some of the techniques are very new and the methods are not always viable by many hobbyists who enter and exit out of frustration, but the magazine has a basic section for new aquarists.
