(5.0 out of 5, based on 1 review)

This 3rd edition, a truly beautiful and immensely colorful book, satisfies the long-existing need for a comprehensive identification guide to marine fishes. This book shows in full color not only the popular aquarium fishes but also the oddballs and weirdos, the large seaquarium-type fishes, both warmwater and coldwater fishes, as well as both foreign and domestic fishes. In short, this book has it all and has it in a format that will provide maximum utility to its reader. The fishes are grouped family by family in phylogenetic order--sharks and rays first, puffers and boxfishes last.The photos were taken predominantly by world-class fish photographers. Most photos are eight-to-the-page, but some of the most beautiful marine fishes are represented in full-page, full-color splendor.Not only does this book supply photos provided with up-to-date scientific names, but almost all of the captions indicate the family, range, size, and optimum aquarium conditions as well. Also included in this book are family-by-family write ups on the aquarium care of these fishes.

The Book to Buy!

posted 6 years ago

This book has photos and descriptions of all of the marine fishes of the world, and the photos are all full-colour. With each photo, there are symbols which give information about the kind of diet the fish eats, where in the water column it typically swims (top/middle/benthic), it's geographic range, ideal temperature, salinity, and if suited for captive keeping, the minimum size aquarium it needs.

Dr. Burgess's book is a great gift for anyone with ANY interest in marine fishes, and is a great reference book as well as making a nice coffee-table book.

I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in keeping marine fishes or currently keeps marine fishes.

Pros: Beautiful full colour photographs, features all marine fishes, hard bound, comes from an expert.

Cons: Not always easy to find at local bookstore.

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
