I highly recommend this book for those interested in learning about saltwater angelfish and butterflyfish. This book tells you exactly how to take care of the fish you have or are planning to get, it shows you different forms of a fish based on where it comes from, and it also shows what are called hybrid fish. Hybrid fish are fish that have crossbred with other fish of the different species (e.g. lemonpeel crossbreeds with the halfblack). The books discusses where a fish comes from, what size the fish will achieve, how to take care of the fish, a suitable tank size and temperature, and the actual suitability of this fish in your tank. The fish are ranked from 1-5, 5 meaning that a fish is very suitable for the aquarium and 1 meaning the fish should be avoided or left in the wild. Also, what I really like about this book is that it includes not only common species of angelfish and butterflyfishes but also the rare and extremely rare fish (e.g. for angelfish, there is information on the Boyle's Angelfish). I highly recommend this book for those who want to succeed in taking care of these fish.
