THE Book

I am looking for a book that would give me photo and a description of the characteristics of each of the most popular/common saltwater fish, corals, inverts, etc. I like the section in the Dr.s Foster and Smith catalog, but it doesn't list enough.

Is there one book out there that is the "Illustrated Bible" of reefkeeping?

I would honestly say there is not one "all encompassing" book that would be any benefit.

The ones I would suggest looking at would be:

These are some of the "better" available references I have found.

As steve has said there is no real ONE book for reefs but thru the combination of 3-5 books you can collectivly end up with a fair amount of information.

More books that are suggested can be found here.
