And good to see the name documentation. Is there an available database holding other information regarding species? Like range, size, etc? Reply Thanks Burt! There are books that I am always using. http://www.fishid.com You can find some at this link. It looks like a website that just sells books but there is an interesting blog and articles by the authors of these books. They sort of document reef creatures. Funny that you should ask anyway because once someone asked exactly how big the creatures were. I never thought about how scary the photos might be if you thought the creatures were about 1 meter high! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
