Good, detailed Cichlid Books?

I am trying to come up with a Christmas list(yes I am 33 about to be 34, have been in two theaters of war, and my mom still demands a Christmas list for Santa, dont laugh, I carry a gun) and usually books are a fairly safe bet and typically not too hard to find.
What I am looking for is a book with various cichlid species, fairly good pics, accurate descriptions and care requirements, and not just the typical species. My main interests are Tangs but an overall cichlild book is good too. Detail is important, when I see the Tropheus genus, I want to see pics of the the different species, not just one or two with an all encompassing article.

Hopefully that explains what I am looking for, any good suggestions?

Oh and happy Thanksgiving!

I have that book. Very detailed and explains everything you need to know to breed, care for, what to feed, ect

Species Profiles -- Cichlid-Forum

There are, I think, 2 genuses on this page so make sure that you scroll down to the Tropheus Genus. This is off of Cichlid forum's profiles, I don't think you have to be a member to access them.
