Hi
Do anybody can suggest some book what describe fish behavior? I mean maybe there is some book what describe how to get close some specific fish, understand when they are angry and attacking and so one. It is important information new underwater photographer who don't have so many experience to understand fish behavior. Its important to understand when to leave fish settle down to don't disturb them to much.
Yeah, its maybe even little secrets from PRO-s how to get close, but it can be also important information to hold natural environment. I saw some YouTube videos how to behave some cases and don't violate their life. It important to keep marine life alive.

There is a set of three books for identification of fish, coral and critters in the Caribbean by Humann and DeLoach. They also have one on fish behavior.
