Marine Habitiat Magazine

Im not one for grabbing every magazine that comes out. I know you think thats because I cant read and only like pictures but actually its because I tend to find alot of what gets churned out to be a repeat of whats been said before or even worse a waste of money and my time.


That said for some bizarre reason I found myself drunk surfing one night after seeing a post here on Reef Face annoucing a new publication, next morning I woke up to an email in my inbox informing me that I'd subscribed to the first 3 editions !


When the magazine arrived I have top say the front cover was bright, attarctive and looked interesting. I do what most males do who have a short attention span and flicked very quickly through it and coming away with a "at first glance" good impression - varied pieces, interesting, uninteresting (to me) and a competition that had a cracking prize of 5 Micro habitat tanks.


Im not a well informed person and font of all knowledge on marines, I just love keeping them and alsways want to know more. I felt the mag gave me a good range of information on equipment, fish, corals and inverts - admittedly not a lot of fish, equipment etc but some nonetheless. If they continue to follow this approach I'm sure over a period of time your (more importantly my) knowledge will grow at a pace my brain my actually be able to keep up with !


What i did find disappointing is that there didnt seem to be enough inside the covers - I wanted more, expected more but didnt get it.


Now to be brutally honest I do care about the environment but not enough to go hug a tree or save a whale or buy Marine Habitat because they donate 5p from every sale to Marine Conservation but it can only help and be a plus to those who do.


Overall is it worth the money - probably (sorry for the fence sitting) but I think its going to be one where it will need to develop more and I get a feel throughout the issue that they seriously do want and will act on feedback about the first edition which I hardly get from any other magazine.


Hope this helps - its my first ever reveiw and I love the sound of my own voice so hope your not too bored but at the very least it helps you decide to buy it !
