Hello,

I am trying to figure out which is the best Marine Invertebrate ID book for the Indo-Pacific region (actually all I really want is Indonesia, the term Indo-Pacific is pretty freaking huge!!), which led me to think that this may be a useful topic. Often these books are only available online, its not like I can go to the library and skim through them all.

So, if you could please help me decide which ID books are the best that would be great! I own the classic fish ID for the Indo Pacific and the Nudi and sea slug books which are fantastic, but am keen to acquire the latest invertebrate and coral ID books, any suggestions would be appreciated!

All the best,

Fontaine

There are some indonesia specific ones, but the above one is pretty good.

A second vote for the Reef Creature ID: Tropical Pacific.

It is a great book that seems to cover almost (!) everything!
