Spans the gulf separating the more specialized disciplines of science—including seawater chemistry, engineering, and physiology—and aquariology. Deals with the maintenance of aquatic animals and plants in a closed-system, i.e., a system in which the water is filtered and otherwise treated, and then reused. Among the topics discussed in detail: temperature control; aeration; buffering; bacteriological filtration; the workings of ultraviolet sterilizers and ozonators; physical adsorption methods; techniques for processing large volumes of influent seawater; and the origins and physiological effects of stress. Includes the most complete bibliography of aquarium literature assembled to date.

The bible to understand the chemistry and physical environment of marine aquariums.  Written when Stephen was the director of the Mystic Marinelife Aquarium in Mystic, Connecticut
