I suppose the really appealing thing about American Aquarium Fishes is it's
shear breadth of range. It's hard to find a book that covers all the
species with more than minimal content on each. Peterson's Field Guides
would be the next best thing, if not the best, since they are probably more
complete than American Aquarium Fishes in terms of species covered.
