Re: Attention All Tropical Saltwater & Reef Keeping Enthusiasts . . . !

T o be successful in life, we find ourselves looking for someone who has in fact 'done it before' and has proven from a 'track record' of consistent success. We then try to copy or emulate that of the person we are trying to learn from. There simply is no point in re-inventing the wheel, right? So what the heck does this have to do with saltwater fish and reef keeping . . . ? Ah ha . . . J If you take a moment to read on - you'll find out how instrumental this comment will be!

I assume that you love our hobby, that of keeping tropical saltwater fish, maintaining a reef or you've simply seen these awesome displays when you entered a doctor's office, a restaurant, seen public aquariums, been awe-struck at seeing your friends tanks or you've been to a tropical paradise such as Hawaii, Fiji or Australia and you wanted to have your own 'piece' of that ocean environment'!

If this describes you . . . Keep Reading and 'Discover' the Good News!

 "Right NOW is YOUR opportunity to see for yourself how 14 knowledgeable and dedicated Reef Keeping 'Masters' reveal their 'Secrets' to achieve 'Maximum Reef Keeping SUCCESS' . . . without all the headaches from misinformation received from 'friends' or 'experts' or through many, many hours researching the internet trying to find the answers or from certain 'LFS' owners that are more interested in taking YOUR money rather than giving you good advice!"

Introducing Eric V. Van Der Hope's book:

Just a few weeks ago I thoroughly interrogated 14 'professional' reef keeping hobbyists in just about every area of this awesome hobby!
These individuals have proved beyond a reasonable doubt that they are responsible, professional and successful at maintaining saltwater/reef systems. Most of these fine individuals have developed their experience through 'trial' and 'error' within this 'hobby' and there are no better individuals who can give advice such as them. They've been through the 'trenches' and this experience is what this book's foundation is based on! As a result of many thought provoking questions, the contributor's were able to convey many exciting and revealing answers!

Each interview is supported with 'prized' images of each of the interviewee's 'display tanks' while each of them recognize that no person would benefit from this book if they gave some quick, hashed together answer - so we are rewarded with detailed and revealing information that will help any person involved in this hobby an exciting and successful one!

It's took painstakingly repeated efforts to get these wonderful people to 'spill their guts' and put it all on line! They have a wonderful passion for this hobby and their answers to my questions prove this!

"It would take months to compile this level of detail from other books or online resources (if it were even available), . . ."

"Hello Eric,

Reef Keeping Basics is a practical, unique, and timeless addition to any reef keeper's bookshelf. The book covers 14 different styles of reef keeping, from the perspectives of 14 very successful reef keepers.

It's really like having 14 close friends tell all their secrets of success, in that these stories and questionnaires communicate all their strategies for success, challenges, things they wish they had known when they started, and more.

It would take months to compile this level of detail from other books or online resources (if it were even available), and Eric has creatively packaged this expertise in a easy to read, information packed volume!

I thoroughly recommend it for any reef keeper that wants to expand their knowledge in the hobby!"

Kris Duggan (Online Coral Trading Community)

There simply is no other book like it on any bookshelf - anywhere! It's unique style lets the reader, that's YOU, decide what advice will best fit your individual needs.

"Hi Eric,

Scientists don't usually bother studying how to keep a species alive in captivity till it nears extinc-tion. As such, much of the known information about reef aquariums has been learned thru trial and error of reef keeping hobbyists.

That said . . . compiling the information leading to the success of these 14 different hobbyists into a book is a fantastic idea! The interviews with these hobbyists was well thought out, leading to valuable, practical information covering everything from what they would do different from the start to everything that was done, resulting in the beautiful thriving tanks pictured in this book.

My family and friends tell me that I seem to be successful when attempting ventures in which I had no prior experience. I credit that to researching my topic and learning everything I can from the success and/or mistakes of others prior to jumping into un-explored territory. This book will assist you in doing the same, learning what has or hasn't worked for these experienced reef hobbyists will save you time and money.

Whether you are considering entering the reef aquarium hobby or have already embarked on your reef keeping venture you will find this book essential to your collection. The investment in this book is worth ever penny!"

Brad Leyten

  #2. Alicia Honn ~ Slojmn's Reef

Alicia began her journey into the reef world 13 years ago after visiting a local pet shop that had fish for sale. The beauty of the saltwater fish is what got her attention. Alicia dedicates much of her time as a professional teacher. She is a founding member of a school for high functioning Autistic kids, kids with Aspergers Syndrome and other kids with neurodevelopmental disorders.

Carole has spent most of her life in Sunny Florida, where she finds lots of fun things to do. She has always had a great love of animals and as a result could easily be the next 'Mrs. Doolittle'. She currently works at a small reef shop specializing in saltwater fish, corals and invertebrate. She finds it to be a very rewarding job! She has kept fish of all types for as long as she can remember. Her childhood memories go back to living near a stream where she enjoyed the fascinating colors, patterns, shapes and sizes of the fish she loved.

  #4. Dave Playfair ~ Mistress Reef


Dave has always been interested in the ocean and spent many childhood summer vacations snorkeling through the muck at low tide in Cape Cod bay! His other interests includes Scuba diving, hang gliding, and radio control helicopters. As a kid he first was 'introduced' into this hobby after winning a goldfish at a carnival. The fascination of this little orange fish grew and after awhile he upgraded to more fish and larger tanks. He went from maintaining freshwater fish to the more 'expensive' yet strikingly beautiful saltwater fish, having as many as 4 tanks at one time. After a while, he couldn't help but 'give in' to the reef indulgence! Dave currently maintains a 120g reef system.

  #5. Joe Burger ~ Cnidarian Reef (a.k.a. JB NY - ReefCentral)


Joe had kept freshwater fish from the 3rd grade up his college years. Through middle school and high school he was even breeding various fresh water fish and selling them to my LFS (Local Fish Stores). Joe's interest in keeping saltwater fish increased during and after attending college. He explained that due to the initial expense and the instability of apartment living it made it harder to actually have a dedicated system. After purchasing a home and a considerable amount of research, he decided to maintain corals rather than fish. He currently maintains a 180g reef containing hard corals, what we in this hobby call SPS corals.

  #6. John Susbilla ~ Exotic Reefs (a.k.a. "tubs" - ReefCentral)


John is "a self-confessed sps-aholic and will work for frags!" Apart from that he works in the telecom industry. John is very much involved in the coral 'trade' where he supplies wonderful frags from dedicated frag growers! If you haven't seen his website - you should! John's experience with saltwater/reef started way back in 1987! He finds that these wonderful fish and 'animals' are truly fascinating! He finds this hobby to be captivating and that being able to have 'a piece of natural wonder' is truly an experience that he finds rewarding! John currently maintains a 360g mixed reef with SPS coral.

Kevin explains that "after nearly 20 years and several more tanks I must admit, I'm definitely hooked for life!" He doesn't believe in any 'right way' to assemble a reef system as he's been quite successful with several methods himself. Kevin currently maintains a 557g tank with a sump/fuge holding an additional 95g! He's been running it since 2001.

  #9. Marc Levenson ~ Melev's Reef Site (a.k.a. Melev - ReefCentral)


At age 11, keeping a 20g Long invertebrate tank and visiting a real lagoon off the island of Morea, near Tahiti, Marc became passionate about saltwater creatures early on. Twenty years later he re-entered the hobby, and found that there was a real lack of knowledge being shared for the marine hobbyist. After attending MACNA in 2003, he decided to create a website that would help others find the answers they so earnestly seeked. Sharing both the good and the bad, he documented it all in an effort to help others avoid some of the pitfalls of this hobby, and achieve successful husbandry in reef keeping. Being an active member of DFWMAS for two years, he was elected president of the club and continues to try to help others by sharing his knowledge and organizing events that provide interaction and the trading of ideas. Marc often recommends DIY projects to help save money, and has provided many webpages detailing ideas that others can emulate. His 280g mixed reef continues to be a work in progress, with some livestock approaching 8 yrs of age.

"Ok I'm Sold . . . ! How Much Will This Incredible
Resource Cost Me?"

Frankly, I thought long and hard about delivering this unique book as part of a high-priced product package in DVD format where I charged an enormous amount due to the truly valuable content and the individuals who've participated. But instead of going to all the trouble of arranging for a DVD duplicator and a dropshipper - I've settled on digital delivery as a perfect and convenient way to deliver this information to you.

I also could have easily priced this book much higher and decided to sell each interview separately. Each contributor's contribution would have been based individually on their experience as well as content.

But I wanted
you and everyone else whose really serious about learning how to successfully manage this wonderful hobby, the chance of purchasing this book without 'breaking' your checkbook! So I've decided to deeply discount the price of my book. When the time comes, the printed version of this enormous volume, totaling over 700+ pages of solid real-world advice, including 345+ images would easily go for more!     

That's why "Reef Keeping Basics - Successful Reef Management", can be purchased for the cost of $77.97!

My Iron Clad, You Can't Lose, Risk Free, 100% Money Back Guarantee!

I'm entirely confident you will be pleased, so pay attention to this part. . .

How Much Is Your Success With This Fascinating Hobby
Worth To You . . . ?

Potentially, this massive 700+ page book would be worth tens, possibly hundreds to you. Even if I priced just one revealing, down-to-earth - real hands-on, truly awe-inspiring 'eye-candy' filled interview at a VERY VERY low $77.97, your investment for this book would be at the very least, $531.58 for all 14 of them! And this is JUST being VERY conservative considering the information that's provided and the individuals who are giving it!

But, this price tag is incongruent with my personal mission statement, which is to help create as many Reef Keeping Hobbyist Success Stories as possible through my work, and as such I do not want price to be a hindrance to anyone who has a sincere desire to succeed and to impress all their friends and relatives!

P.S. - Think about it. If you're not reading this book and you hold off getting it till later, then it may take you many months before you can finally get a display tank looking the way you really want! Also - you may be setting yourself up to enormous mistakes!

P.P.S. - Why spend the next weeks and months trying to figure it all out while you can see for yourself exactly how people just like you, with little or no experience, be able to maintain an exquisite and colorful display? Just imagine, you can learn everything without having to make the same embarrassing, yet disastrous mistakes as others.
