How do you say that fish name?
I know there are a bunch of fish that I don't know how to pronounce so I end up going into an LFS and say "I'll take some of those". I thought it might be good to help each other out, I apologize if this has already been done but I don't know where to look.
Here's a couple off the top of my head.
Platy- Pronounced "play-dee"
Cichlid- For some reason when I read this, in my head I always says Chick-lid. But it's pronounced "sick-lid".
Betta- Pronounced "bet-uh"
Any idea on kirbensis? I was trying to say it to a guy in the shop and he thought I was crazy....
Wow... you have saved me some major embarrassment at the LFS... thanks!
