    This book is about fish identification, not fish care.

    In all honesty, I think you would be better off getting the books by Scott W. Michael, Reef Aquarium Fishes and The 101 Best Saltwater Fishes, 2 very good books that provide fairly decent info about many of the fish we encounter. They give you info about feeding, habitat, compatibility and so on.
