    Also. "Corals of the World" by Dr. JEN Vernon. A three volume set that catalogs literally thousands of corals from around the world in a great pictorial presentation. Great for identifying, to some degree, the corals we find and purchase. I say, "to some degree", because as many authoritative authors have pointed out, to correctly ID corals, some need skeletal examination to be sure of the correct identity.

    A voluminous work of art on a subject so dear to our hearts that every coral enthusiast should own it, along with the previously mentioned books.

    I happen to be fortunate enough to own them and many others.

    Yes they are but, worth every penny. I lucked out at MACNA a couple of years ago, a dealer there had 3 sets and was selling them out for $125. I should have bought all three. I wasn't thinking ahead.

    Dick,

    Now that's a deal. You can't buy those used for that price !

    Do you still have the solar led fixture ?
