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.
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.
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)
When choosing a new fish for your aquarium, this book can give the first idea of what species will or will not suit your reef set-up.
