Author: Warren E. Burgess, Herbert R. Axelrod, Ray Hunziker
Publisher: TFH Publications (1997)
Format: Hardcover, 15x23 cm.
This book is the marine counterpart of Dr. Axelrod's Mini-Atlas, one of the best selling books in the hobby. It contains all the elements which make the latter so successful: a 642-page Pictorial Identification Section, with over 1900 full color photos of all the most popular marine fishes and a symbol-based description of their characteristics, followed by a 246-page Setup and Maintenance Section with all you need to know about the marine aquarium: Equipment, Filtration, Water Chemistry, Feeding, Diseases, Breeding, etc., and all this for a very affordable price!
This book was gifted to me by somebody and initially I must admit that I was taken aback by just one look at the size of this book, but once I opened it I found it to be a well of knowledge on marine fishses and keeping a reef tank. I now intend to buy the Atlas of Marine Fishes and Atlas of Freshwater Fishes. I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about aquariums and marine fishes. My compliments to Burgess and Axelrod, these books are a runaway success!
