The ABC Dictionary Game (Freshwater 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 freshwater there will be a separate one for saltwater.
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. :)
