Product Description

Synopsis

Buying fish for your aquarium can be a lottery unless you know exactly what you are doing. You may buy a fish that will disrupt your existing collection or you may be sold two males instead of the breeding pair you were seeking. This new series of buying guides provides the information and reassurance you need before you even step into a shop. Here, you will find details about a wide range of marine fishes so that you can make the right buying decision with complete confidence. The text delivers the answers to a series of vital questions, from 'What size?' to 'How does it behave?'. The information given is accurate, concise and relevant. The clear page design makes retrieving answers quick and easy. A crucial part of each entry is a fish profile, a brief "firsthand" summary so that you can judge at a glance if this particular species or variety will suit you and your system. Clear guidance is given on how to distinguish between males and females, plus many of the colour forms or varieties commonly available in aquarium shops. The result is a unique reference point for would-be buyers the world over.

From the Back Cover

Buying fish for your tropical marine aquarium can be an uncertain process. This new book puts your mind at rest by providing vital information about a wide range of fish. The advice is accurate, up-to-date and easy to access. As an added bonus, there is a star rating guide to the price you might expect to pay for each fish.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as other What... guides 23 April 2011
Format:Paperback
Basic one page description of each creature, with very useful sub-headings : What it eats, what eats it, what it is or isn't compatible with. The best quick reference book I've found.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful 22 May 2012
By Kez
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Love these books they are realy useful, obviously they only have some of the most popular fish in but it is not a massive book. I am always reffering to it and enjoy picking it up and looking at the different marine's you can get that are not always in the shops. I find it has all the information about care and requirements for each fish.
