Not Jan, but I'll answer this. There are photos of almost all of the
fishes, about half of which are color. Dr. Robison gives very good
descriptions of habitat and habits (where known). I got my
hardcover copy for $25 from a used book dealer - a great
investment! The later edition that I've seen was softcover. It may
have updated photos - I don't know.
