    I spent the majority of my day today snorkeling along the jetti's. Before I was like, hey look at that fish, it's pretty...but now that I have a tank, I'd like to know what I'm looking at and what's in my local ocean.

    Anyone have any suggestions on online databases to assist in ID? I'm going to start a thread up tomorrow about my little adventure(awaiting pics : / )

    Otherwise I'm going to just list pictures every weekend, lol. I need to get a good underwater camera..any suggestions for 30ish feet depth max cameras?

    The book by Scott W. Michael on this list is very comprehensive and covers pretty much every fish kept in this hobby. But for fish in your local area, I think you may have to head to your local scuba shop. They should have plenty of resources on the local ecology.
