A comprehensive field guide for aquarists, divers and naturalists, with detailed full color photographs of hundreds of species, encompassing many of the invertebrates one is likely to encounter on and near reefs around the world. This book defines the invertebrate groups and gives brief information about their structure and natural history. Hundreds of species of invertebrates are described.

In addition the author gives information about similar looking species, range, habitat, food requirements, special considerations, toxicity, hardiness, and compatibility issues, and discusses their suitability for reef aquariums and captivity in general.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Exactly what it says.
Cons: Brand new price being around $40

With each type of invertebrates categorized into chapters, this book is excellent for quick look up and basic important information. Common name, region, Desirable/undesirable features, food, special considerations, and hardiness in captivity for thousands of invertebrates.

This is one of the best books for a salt water enthusiast to have to help decide on which invertebrates to consider having in a tank.
