The ABC Dictionary Game (Saltwater version)

Rules: This game will start off much like the abc game. You must come up with a word beginning with the next letter of the Alphabet from the preceding post. The catch is the words must be aquarium/fishkeeping related. And you must provide a breif definition of that word. If this does well we will combine all information into our very own Fish Keeping Dictionary. Please keep all posts to Saltwater there will be a separate one for Freshwater.
Edit: When naming fish please stick with the common names. Or do so like this common name/scientific name but make sure you use common for order in alphabet. Thanx


Have Fun. :)

First Word is....


Aiptasia: A small pest anemone known to over run aquariums quickly. And cause illness/death to any corals they come into contact with. Aiptasia are often combated by introduceing butterfly fish and peppermint shrimp, two natural predators of the aiptasia.

Jawfish are aptly named with their huge mouths that seem to take up their entire head. These unique little fish also have large eyes, elongated bodies and unusual lifestyles.
