Book Review 

  Microcosm proudly launches its all-new series of pocketexpert guide for Aquarists and Underwater Naturalists with Marine Fishes by Scott W. Michael. Designed as a quick but authoritative handbook on the 500 "need to know" fish species seen and kept by marine aquarists, this first Pocketexpert is a must-have reference for all saltwater hobbyists and professionals   
  A comprehensive guide to creating a reef environment in the home aquarium.
Designed with the beginning hobbyist in mind, this richly illustrated reference introduces the hobby of marine aquariums in a practical way. Explaining the technology and terminology clearly, Greg Jennings relates the aquarium setting to that of the natural saltwater environment and offers fascinating insights into the biology and the behavior of the most popular marine fish.
Over 150 species of reef fish, invertebrates and algae are described: their distribution in the wild, size, behavior, diet, aquarium requirements and compatibility. A large, full color photograph appears for each featured species, with personal recommendations on the fish considered best for the beginner.
The New Encyclopedia of the Saltwater Aquarium covers:
  • The natural history of saltwater fish
  • The pros and cons of the latest in equipment and technology
  • Saltwater aquarium setup and maintenance - starting out, water quality and temperature, tank decor, lighting and filters
  • Feeding, general care and health matters
  • An extensive illustrated selection of saltwater fish, invertebrates and algae.
 
    Very good catalogue of fish for those who seek an overview of all families. One or two more infos would be sometimes helpfull (sex, size). Some families are underrepresanted (Gobiidae, Blenniidae) but including all of them would have been difficult as they are huge families. I would recomend using it as a first identification source (not on the field though...big!) and then switch to a more specialized book providing more infos about the species. A must have for all marine fish enthusiast!
