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.
Butterflyfish: A group of fairly small tropical marine fish of the family Chaetodontidae found mostly on the reefs of the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans.
Copepods: A group of small insect like crustaceans found in both saltwater and freshwater habitats. Copepods are often raised in a refugium and used as a food source for many marine animals
Diatoms: Delicate single cell nuisance algaes that have a yellow-brown color to them. Diatoms are sometimes refered to as "Brown Algae" and often appear as a brownish film across the bottom of new marine aquariums.
Emperor Angelfish: are known for their dramatic color changes with growth. The juvenile Emperor Angelfish is dark blue-black with a white ring on the rear of the body. This is surrounded by incomplete circles of blue and white.
Adult Emperor Angelfish have diagonal yellow and purplish-blue stripes on the body, and a curved black bar covering the eye.

Goldrim tang a type of tang with a rich brown body shading to bright yellow on the rear...... :D
