About this book

Language: English

From the preface:

"The stunning colour and astonishing behavioural patterns of many coral reef fishes like clowns, butterflyfishes, angelfishes, triggers, etc. have delighted the world since the 18th century when man started exploring the underwater world. It was not, however, until the last few decades that the intimate relationship of sea anemone-anemonefish, and the various colour patterns and the ecological significance of butterflyfishes began to be known worldwide. Nowadays, the fascinating coral reefs have become accessible to increasing numbers of tourists, sport-divers, skin-divers, naturalists and marine scientists who have all helped in contributing to our knowledge base about the anemone and butterflyfishes. The development of colours, their range, diversity and amazing colours is unrivalled anywhere in the animal kingdom, except possibly by butterflies and birds.

Almost all large public aquaria have these anemone and butterflyfishes on display. Moreover, these fish have been on top in aquarium fish trade for the past few decades. A collection of butterfly and anemonefishes is more than just a selection of marine creatures for scientific study; it is a thing of beauty in itself. This pictorial guide has been primarily designed to cater to the needs of all enthusiasts, underwater observers, and amateur aquarists to researchers and further to understand and appreciate the diversity, ecological significance and the fascinating relationship between sea anemones and anemonefishes of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The authors hope that it will add greater pleasure to fish-watchers and ignite new insights into the ecological significance of butterflyfishes and the symbiotic nature of anemonefishes."
