This book made an interesting and informative read. I do belive that it is more for the begginer, rathur than the experianced hobbiest.
It had colourful pictures and quick, easy to read and remember tips and facts for each of the species mentioned. The only fault I could find was the lack of information for when you wish to progres beond the 'begginer' stage.
However, It is a must for all new to keeping marine fish a it sticks to important information with no jargon!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Yes this is a book for beginners- but an extremely useful one. However you do tend to go I WANT THAT FISH! and then notice that it grows to 18"/ 45cm (So that cute looking yellow horned cowfish will be out then!).

You get a species to a page. A nice picture of the fish. A globe to show you the rough distribution. There's a description of the fish and it's eventual size. There's also a panel of fishkeeping data which tells you:
The number per aquarium
The community it fits in
Its swimming zone
Food
Compatibility (whether it eats other tankmates)
Availability (including whether it's tank bred or live caught)
Captive breeding possibilities.

Frankly as the data is well laid out and succinctly informative I feel that this is a very good planning guide which could prevent costly mistakes in the brightly coloured world of marine fishkeeping.

This is a brilliant book, especially for beginers to choose the type of fish they want. Details of how many of each species to keep & with what other species that fish would be well suited to. A Great Help This Book

although the title is a bit misleading. I thought 'an essential guide to choosing your marine tropical fish' would have information on which species go well together (and perhaps which,as a beginner, to avoid), but instead the book concentrates on a description (with some lovely photos) of the fish. It includes lion fish, which most other sources seem to recommend beginners avoid, and doesn't really indicate any difficulty with keeping these fish. Perhaps it would help if the book included information on which species go well together, which are easiest for a beginner, and so on. All in all, a nice book, but it doesn't really do what it sets out to do.
