About this book

Amongst reef-fishes, few could compete with the beauty of angelfishes. The 'bill-board' appearance of the large species may surprise an encountering diver and arouse some curiosity when a loud bongo-like sound hits them. Angelfishes can be found on all tropical reefs, but usually occur in small numbers. Many species remain small in size, around the 10 cm mark, and combined with their beauty, and often rarity, are sought after in the aquarium trade. At present 8 genera and at least 88 species are known, some still undescribed, and all are included here with colour photographs. Even those species that live in deep water are presented here in living colour. In addition, many new colour morphs are shown.
