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. :)

First Word is....

Apistogramma: A genius of several species of fish from the family Cichlidae found in tropical areas of the Amazon basin and Venezuela.

Quarantine Tank:

A seperate tank that is used to keep sick or diseased fish in order to treat the fish. Mainly used so that specific fish can be targetted with medicated foods and with medicines, salt or heat treatments if needed. Also used a lot by those who have planted tanks or invertebrates because of the negative effects that medications and salts have on plants and inverts.
