The members of the family Chaetodontidae and Microcanthidae are amongst the most conspicuous and admired fishes on coral reefs. Their deep disk-like bodies are often boldly colored, as if to advertise their presence, and catch the eye of a snorkeler or diver as these fish usually swim openly about on the reefs. There are about 130 species, variously distributed in all tropical to subtropical seas, placed in 11 genera and all are covered in this excellent book.The Marine Fish Families Series : All the books in this series are comprehensively illustrated with hundreds of spectacular underwater photographs and contain information on behavior, habitats and aquarium requirements for the various groups or species. They also include an introduction to genera and sub genera and picture index pages for visual quick-find of genera, sub genera and species plus a full index of common and scientific names.
