Common and Scientific names of Aquarium Fish

Recommended Posts

Im hoping to get a sticky on the top of this thread about common Vs Scientific names

Would be good to see what you think ??

just fish in Aus (at first) maybe as these are the ones we come across

also if we post them up all the mods would have to do is tidy the post and make a list

it could be changed if a fish name changes or names added as we go

as a few might be forgotten

Thoughts pls as well as a few names to start us off also Mods what do you think

Yeah seems like I good idea for other species, Tanganyikans most of the time always have their scientific name

Even that list above that Dave posted is missing the different variants/locations of tricoti, pleurospilus, and dewindti

I meant like onto the Aquarium trader or wiki thing Grum is making

I can add things like tank size, fish size, breeding, etc.

I could only add the more specific info to the ones I've kept, like breeding, temperament and that kind of stuff

I was only thinking of a sticky of names but lets see where grum wants to take it as he says not enough hours in the day

maybe a sticky on here and a more detailed log on Aquarium Trader

This will take time to do not overnight but it will improve both sites
