Many have asked me on what I had used as reference in naming the species of fish seen in many of the photos here. I use the Revised Edition, Reef Fishes of the World by Ewald Lieske and Robert Myers, published by Harper Collins.

It is a very compact book, which makes it easy to lug around on your trips. The book contains a decent number of species illustrations with more than adequate descriptions. However, it is not easy to use illustrations to recognize what you had seen. Photos are much better for this purpose.

Remember to check your dive store's library collection though. They normally have an adequate selection of specie references - Eric
