About this book

Contains three volumes from the Marine Fish Family series including the volumes on Angelfishes, Basslets, and Butterflyfishes.

Angelfishes: A Comprehensive Guide to Pomacanthidae
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.

Basslets, Hamlets and Their Relatives: A Comprehensive Guide to Selected Serranidae and Plesiopidae
Some of the most colourful reef fishes are small, rarely noticed or extremely secretive. Best known are the fairy-basslets, schooling planktivores that may be so numerous that they cloud the water above reefs when feeding. Others live singly or in pairs in the back of dark caves and disappear with the slightest disturbance. About 60 genera are presented here, covering several hundreds of species, and included are most species known as Bass or Basslets, Hamlets and the related Soapfishes and Seaperches, plus similar groups that include the Grammas, Longfins, Blue Devils, Hulafishes and Scissortails.

Butterflyfishes, Bannerfishes and their Relatives: A Comprehensive Guide to Chaetodontidae and Microcanthidae
Seemingly advertising themselves with the bold colours on their disk-like bodies, Butterflyfishes are amongst the most conspicuous fishes that swim out openly on coral reefs. They are admired by snorkelers and divers, and are also amongst the most popular and sought after fishes for the marine aquarium. Over 130 species of butterflyfishes and bannerfishes occur in tropical seas around the world. Most live at shallow depths, but a few species were observed from submersibles at about 200 m, too deep for an amateur diver. Photographs of such species in situ are included here.
