Dr. Burgess's Atlas of Marine Aquarium Fishes (Guide to Owning A...)
Synopses & Reviews
Here is a new edition of a marine fish book — a truly beautiful and immensely colorful book — that 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 of its readers: the fishes are grouped family by family in phylogenic 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 aquarium care of these fishes.
A comprehensive identification guide to marine aquarium fishes.
