 Click on the cover above to go to this book at

This is probably the best guide to choosing marine fish. It helps you to avoid making expensive or heartbreaking mistakes, and to choose fish that are compatible and which may even breed successfully. There is information both on the needs of particular fish, as well as on how they are likely to relate to others in the tank. The book is well-organised, and the text is easy to follow. It is well worth spending time researching fish with a book as informative as this, making a shopping list before you get to the shop. This guide is also a handy enough size to take into shops and check that you (and the store) have identified particular fish correctly, and to work out the wisdom of any impulse to buy particular fish that takes your fancy in a store.
