Can anyone recommend a book (preferabley available in the UK) for the identification of soft and hard corals as well as invertebrates?

The book would need to be biased towards Indo/Pacific

I've got a couple that I like, all available through New World Publications (who handle Paul Humann & Ned Deloach's Reef guides) :

"Indo-Pacific Coral Reef Field Guide" by Dr. Gerald Allen and Roger Steene, Odyssey Publications 1800 photos covering fish, coral, invertebrates, turles, marine mammals approx $40 US

"Coral Reef Animals of the Indo-Pacific" by Terrence Gosliner, David Behrens & Gary Williams, Odyssey Publications 1100 photos - only invertebrates, no fish approx $45 US

You can order them on line at www.fishid.com

They also have available "Asia Pacific Reef Guide" and "Indian Ocean Reef Guide", each with 1000+ photos, each about $45.
