Format: Paperback
We have been looking for a book to identify Marine Fish for some time and, had we found this one first, we would have looked no further and saved a fortune.
This book gives a one fish per page detailed coloured photo, max length, min aquarium size, foods and feeding tips, compataility and captive care guide. The text is easy to read and understand, the suitability index is simple to use and an index for both scientific name and common name can be found at the back of the book.
The 500 species included are of the more readily available variety and are listed within the book under main species type ie; Angel, Blennies,Surgeonfishes.
Excellent value for money and a must for any new or established marine fish enthusiast.

I was looking for some basic marine aquarium books and as a species catalog/fish guide I decided on this one.
The book is structured in a one page - one fish style. Has good and well sized (for a pocket book) colour pictures on most of the not so rare marine fishes.
Also included is basic information about the fishes - great for finding suitable and mixable species and to become aware about special needs and difficulties. Has recommendations about aquarium sizes and types for particular fishes.
Great and simple book of pictures of fishes and their basic data. Great to be couple with a more technical/fundamental marine/reef aquarium book.

This book is a godsend for all those looking to learn the compatibility about a given species of marine fish in a reef or fish only setup.

Every species that you could possibly put into a marine aquarium (including a nurse shark)is listed, with a short and informative summary across a full page.

The fish are easy to find, and give; a picture of the species, latin and common names, and almost everything you need to pick and keep fish for your aquarium.

My only reservation with this guide is that the aquarium suitibility colour code is vague and inaccurate, e.g. it would suggest that it is just as easy to keep a dragon moray as it is to keep a percula clownfish. Perhaps this is why the colour coded aquarium suitibilty was scrapped for the book "Marine Inverts" which is the same in layout and format.

Overall, it's the best quick guide for aquarium hobbiests, that includes such a large range of fish. (freshwater included)

Having kept marines for the last 7 years and read many books I can say that this is one of the most informative books I've read. Crammed with vital information that both the beginner and more experienced marine enthusiast can learn from.

Format: Paperback
This book could do with icons for quick compatability reference similar to the reef book in the series. Handy to have and written by an authority, not some muppet on a forum. Definitely recommended for anyone new to the hobby to help you get started. Great reference book as you get started as it gives a great starting point for deciding which fish interest you and some basic information on what each critter is all about.
