How do you pronounce Festivum?
 
Ok so the guy at my LFS is a complete tool, but that aside... he corrected me on the way I was pronouncing "Festivum" (FEST i vum). He says Fes TEE vum.

Who's right?

Technically both as its scientific name is Mesonauta festivus, pronounced Fes TI vus but common name is Festivum pronounced Fest TEE vum.
